Yes, a great idea. A lot more can be achieved in person with a well 
facilitated, free flowing discussion :) If the meeting is well advertised, 
and there is plenty of effort to gather opinion from those who cannot attend, 
then IMO exclusion shouldn't be a big problem.

I agree completely, which is why I suggested trying to do a bit of outreach on 
any input gathering, and why I emphasised the activities and goals over the 
structure. This may be partly down to my dislike for bureaucracy, but I 
always prefer to see what should and can be done and developing some 
consensus around those issues, before people start imposing organisational 
structures on everyone :o)
