Thanks Nenna.

How about IGC appoints a liaison to that civil society group that is in
touch with the tech-envoy, so that everyone can periodically get updated on
this list?

I think Sheetal and Bruna kept us updated but perhaps it would be good to
distribute the workload to someone who can specifically focus on this
liaison role. If Sheetal or Bruna can do this, that would be great too.
(and to be clear, I am not volunteering... sorry,I know I am probably
creating work for someone else, but I would love to see someone to
volunteer, I think it will help us greatly)
