Conference Committee Members

The question period is now closed. I think the the Dar es Salaam team have answered the questions, it is for you to decide whether those answers are satisfactory.

The selection process now allows for a period of discussion amongst the CC members (possibly an IRC) however given the small number of questions and a sole bidder I am not sure what would be gained from a further discussion. Can you respond within the next 48 hours if you wish to schedule a discussion, otherwise I will move on to the voting stage.

Re voting. I think that we should follow the process and hold a vote even though there is only one proposal for consideration. My suggestion is that we include a second option in the vote - “No to Dar es Salaam”. I am not in any way say suggesting that there is anything wrong with the Dar proposal or that I would vote against it but I am suggesting that in a secret ballot anyone who is opposed to the Dar proposal should have a way of registering that vote. In the event that the no vote exceeded the yes vote we would then recommend to the board that we recommence the selection process.

If the CC view is that my suggestion is an unnecessary bit of bureaucracy then I will proceed in whatever way you suggest. Either way can you confirm your preference at the same time as indicating whether you want an IRC before voting.

Cheers and seasons greetings to you and yours
