Perhaps what needs to be done is to organise a series of fora where these
bodies are invited, and the meetings structured so that they can be led
through the issues? Ie a formal process for gaining their input that
happens in public, sort of like the ACCC public hearings, but not
quite so formal.

That way the meetings are educative (therefore they will have to be
organised by - say - NOIE or ISOC) as well as facillitating their
input into the process. I don't believe they will come forward
en masse otherwise.

We can organise some sponsorships probably via a few of the
existing players so that things are held in reasonably nice venues,
with LUNCH, minutes taken etc. I might be able to swing either
a venue or some other facillities. Provided notice is adequate.
