I am under a robust NDA/NC period with my previous employer until April 2013. I aim to respect that NDA/Non-Compete period until it expires in April. However, there is another company positioning itself to hire me soon after the period expires. They would like to fly me out, give me a tour of the facilities and do general wooing. They also asked if I could write up my perfect job description for myself. All of this with the strong intent to hire after my NC expires.
Questions is, am I engaging in any "competitive activity" by agreeing to an early meet/greet and writing up my ideal job description for this new company?
(It's important to note that my previous employers are notoriously litigious about NDA/NC issues)
Thank you in advance.

It depends on the content of the NDA and the Non-Compete Agreement and what the contracts actually prohibit. If you are worried about the risk, consult with an attorney experienced in this area prior for a full analysis.
