Gareth Shearman reported that our effectiveness as an organization had improved dramatically over the past year, especially with respect to getting the word out about CAP. The monthly teleconferences have been a big help. Issues dealt with include telecom policy in general, the death and resurrection of CAP, and ICANN. Kudos to Marita for her work in getting the publicity out and get the CAP funding restored.
