Slight modification: we are talking about the 22nd and 23rd, Thursday & Friday


> I'd advice not yet making flight arrangements, as in order to really confirm these dates, we'll need to get our Charter up for a vote two months earlier -- the target being before the AC meeting in Beijing April 23rd-25th (so less than a month from now).  I think it's likely we'll make that schedule, so it's likely the F-to-F will be in NYC on June 23rd & 24th.
> And lastly, FYI, "MITRE Corporation has nominated Dorian Voegeli to Digital Publishing Interest Group" so we'll hopefully have a new member on our next call.
