  • Identify a concrete subject for the panel based upon discussion and rough consensus. The subject and process must take into account the IGF-USA Principles, and the survey response topics that the subject is based upon.

  • Assign team leader(s) and a representative to interface with the steering committee and provide ongoing up to date information to secretariat.
