Notification of an informal meeting to discuss the proposed Rules of Procedure

The Intersessional Working Group (IWG), established by MOS1, has been working on the draft Rules of Procedure for Meetings of the Signatories. The draft is already available online as document CMS/Sharks/MOS2/Doc.2.2  Proposed Rules of Procedure for the Meetings of the Signatories to the Memorandum of Understanding on the Conservation of Migratory Sharks

 The co-chairs of the IWG are concerned that discussions on this document may take considerable time during the meeting, and limit the time available to discuss more important issues of shark conservation and management.   They have therefore requested the Secretariat to arrange for an informal, open-ended meeting of the Intersessional Working Group, to advance discussions on the Rules of Procedure, in advance of MOS2.    All Signatories are invited to attend.

 This informal meeting will take place on 14 February, 2016, the day before MOS2 begins, and at the same venue.  

 The co-chairs requested that all Signatories be informed, so that you can make appropriate travel arrangements.   

 For planning purposes, we would appreciate if you would let the secretariat know if you are planning to attend, and with how many delegates.
