The CCWG-Accountability and the CWG-Stewardship will each hold a face-to-face meeting in Istanbul, Turkey the week of 23-27 March 2015. The CWG and CCWG leaders coordinated the location, agreeing that holding their respective two-day meetings consecutively was the best way to apply resources and manage joint efforts.

These decisive meetings are scheduled to help reinforce each group's respective project plans and timelines, both anticipating drafts for public comment in April.

Meetings are open to observers1 through Adobe Connect, and the working sessions will be recorded and transcribed.
