You're welcome to raise the issue and I look forward to ensuing discussion.
Frankly, I'm concerned about the active effort to minimize At-Large
participation within the ATRT, even in the "open" preliminary process.

But that's not going to be that useful in the public comment process in
which we need to respond to the substance of the report. For example, I
would call NARALO members' attention to:

- the report's failure (or refusal) to distinguish between vested-interest
stakeholders and public-interest ones
- why the report deals extensively with improving the relationship of the
Board and the GAC but does not mention "At-Large" once (and its only
reference to ALAC is historical)
