Thanks for the invitation Janice I certainly think that having a 
roundtable style chat would be a good idea and ALAC will be happy to be 
involved be it me or either of our Vice Chairs (if not me) is yet to be 
determined though, as we have a competing meeting at the time on the Tue 
(with the ALAC Review WG - so kinda a priority ;-)  but we'll get one of 
us there for fellowship...

My goal is to make sure that newcomers know all of the available options and opportunities to become involved in the ICANN community; I see the fellows as building blocks for our future.

I also have 2 alumni speaking briefly on their experience of becoming involved in the ICANN community.
