Action Items

Action: staff send calendar invites for Wednesday and Thursday calls


Legal advice.  End of each template in blue. 

In the discussion of membership, it would be helpful to make clear that this is not full and
individual and corporate membership organization. 

Point 6 page 4.  The community is not seeking oversight over all OCANN business, only some specific
areas.  The veto powers are for specific issues 
not ICANN wide.  The budget veto for example would be specific once/year.  Recognizes that the ICANN
board must be able to continue to govern. 

Budget veto.  Blocking strategic plan or budget.  Not to micro-manage.  Up/down vote on the budget.
Recognize need to bring this into the planning process. 

Comment:  Page 3.  Blue text.  Advice on how the proposal might get in the way of budget process.
Already part ICANN's process.  There is no line 
item veto or adjustment being requested.  Requests revision.  

Clarifications appreciated, esp re membership definition.

External counsel finds it hard to know who is to be listened to and who less aware of the issues.

3.  Consider content for the public comment document: 

  -- the AOC incorporation 

Document content should be familiar, but the table presentation is new.  

Context:  6.6.1  Only some of the AoC would make there way in.  Some are preamble, and some are
commitments of the US govt. 

from articles 3, 4 and 7, taken elements specific to ICANN.  Aricle  3:decisions made in public
interest, consider security stability, etc.  Some are well covered 
in mission and core values. 

added a new fire value, ICANN should ensure that decisions are made in the public interest and are
bottom-up s underlined

Article 5. discussing consumer trust in the DNS marketplace and should find there way into the work
of WP2.  

Articles related to transparency.  

Article 7.  add in the core values and new section 8.

Article 8.  Three issues. Focus on b and c.  US commitment to remain HQ'd in the US.  And also being
addressed in WP2.  Suggest that 8.c be added as a 
new core value, which calls out ICANN's role as a bottom-up multi-stakeholder not for profit

Item 3, promotion consumer trust and competition.  What has happened to the role of the ICANN CEO
and Chair of the GAC?  Assumed that the SO and AC 
would decide who populated the review teams, i.e. constant with community empowerment.   

Noted a lot of repetition in the possible bylaws revision of reviews, this might be moved to an
overview/introduction.  And an request for an annual independent 
report on progress made on ATRT recommendations.  Changes in timeframe, 3-5 years.  WHOIS,
recommendation to reference the OECD privacy standards.  

In CWG there is discussion that the periodic review of the IANA function be conducted in a similar
way to the SO/AC reviews, and a placeholder added for this.  

Review of final mechanisms.  2 further calls this week.  Need to finish end of Friday.  

Call 15 April Wednesday 21:00 - 23:00. Addition of 19:00 21:00 UTC on 16 April Thursday.  

24 hours to review before it it put to CCWG over the weekend.
