Subject: RE: [legalcitem] Global distribution of TC members for maximizing involvement

It was my understanding from the note below that the North America west coast group of 7 included both UTC -7 and UTC -10 (Hawaii). I know that it is impractical for my California colleague, with a young child to get to daycare before work, to attend 7am meetings. She probably won't be able to participate regularly unless another meeting time is established. As for me, I would prefer another time, although I can continue to make the 7am time work if necessary.

Dear Chet,

> - Asia (UTC +9) = 1

Our current meeting time, at 16:00 (Europe), 10:00 (NA East), 7:00 (NA West), 23:00 (Japan) seems working for all of us. Of course this assumes that Frank Bennett in Japan is fine meeting at 11PM... 

I understood there were some people in Hawaii, who would have to join us at 4:00 AM, which would be hardly practical, but you don't seem to have listed anyone from there. 

Therefore, assuming that Frank still agrees to meet at 11PM, I don't believe there is a reason sufficient to split teleconferences in two groups.  

Just my personal opinion, though.
