Argh. Of course - thanks VERY much for reminding me of this. I didn't
ignore it but did completely forget it!

I do remember your proposal, Alice's shock, and willingness to serve
and no objections to proceeding in this way. Please accept my humblest
apologies everyone. And many thanks Pierre for reminding me!

I will amend the text and exchange Didier for Alice in the process.

Note that my putting in Jacqueline was simply because we have three
RALOs to get through, instead of one like in Sao Paulo, so it seemed
sensible to try to help tie the three parts of the process with one
person who was on ALAC but not part of one of the three regions, for
equality of treatment, and the Chair seemed the natural choice -
especially since she comes from the region where the first RALO was
created. I hope this makes sense and is also generally acceptable.
