Dear Pierre,
as ICSSI staff we discussed the issue today. Taif told us that the new volunteers are still trying to understand what is the Iraqi Social Forum, it's a bit premature to throw them in a specific training programme on the Extended social forum. Most important, as far as we know the ISF committee has not appointed yet a person in charge of the extension team, since their last meeting was attended by few people (it's Ramadan, it's hot and situation is tense in Baghdad). Let's wait for more info from Ali and Waled on this. As ICSSI team we feel that unless the ISF appoints this person we cannot start doing the training programmes.

I will follow up this afternoon on other pending issues.
