1. ICFA Seminar
The ICFA meeting was held during the ICFA Seminar at SLAC, which was acknowledged by many to have been very successful; there were ~176 attendees. ICFA felt that the Seminar format and its size of 150-200 attendees were about optimum. Ways to increase the attendance of government science officials at future ICFA Seminars, and possible invitations to science journalists, were discussed.
2. ICFA Chair
ICFA selected Atsuto Suzuki to be its next Chair, for a three-year term to start on 1 January 2009.
