I don't think that "avoid" is what's being suggested here.  Instead,
the current public policy process is open, transparent and ensures an
opportunity for informed comment and consent.

The question is: what happens when an organization needs input from our
ommunity prior to the Arctic ice pack melting?  I don't think we should
"avoid" face-to-face and email conversations . . . I just think we
should have an alternative mechanism for addressing requests/concerns
in timeframes that are not addressed by the timeframes of the Public 
Policy Meeting.
