I do not know, it is too complex to figure out in the time available.  
IMHO this is why we elect representatives to the committee to inform  
us of them. I have not been able to get a triage on this important  
task ...

Help with point one. Clear simple to read emails.

Participation, representation, transparency, clarity.

Not important to me.

Clear simple communications
Regular reporting and updates
Regular elections

(e.g., "Operational Plan and Budget for FY 08/09" is not relevant to  
us, I would much prefer to see a whois TF update and gtld process  
update in simple to read language with the key points).

Ensure that our representatives are communicating and are representing  
our interests
