Hello all,

We have received 2 suggestions so far about the topic for the meeting. Both
topics (suggested by Liz Orembo and Barrack Otieno) are about participation
in ICANN during this pandemic.

Barrack suggested this: Enhancing the resilience of DNS Infrastructure in
the face of pandemics.

Kindly let us know if this topic is okay. The deadline to submit topics is
tomorrow, *22 May 2020*.

We have also received some expressions of interest to join the drafting
team. If you are interested, please reach out offlist.
