I'm against it unless we get the funding from ICANN to do a GA.  If so, it might be worthwhile.  If not - reasons stated below.

Subject: [NA-Discuss] Consensus on NARALO showcase in Toronto


Pursuant to the last NA phone meeting, I said I would try to measure some consensus in the region as to whether we should plan and hold a showcase in Toronto, as we did (very successfully) in San Francisco.

What I heard on the phone was something of a consensus that we should not have one, reasons cited including:
* Showcase burnout
* Few new ALSs to showcase joining NA since San Francisco
* Do we (regional orgs) need to have a showcase every time there is a local ICANN meeting?
* Instead of a showcase should we do something that's more engaged with the public interest
* Should we concentrate instead on capacity building sessions or other

So I am going to start from the position that there's a consensus we should not hold a showcase in Toronto.

Please let us know over the next week or so if you would like NA to hold a showcase and we can consider the response.
