>From your email it appears that the Board was briefed by Fadi on his role as Co-Chair of the Advisory Committee after it was publicly announced that he had accepted the position, indicating that the Board was not advised in advance of his decision to accept the role. 

Is that a correct interpretation of the sequence of events?

Thank you and best regards,

Hello All,

I have had a few requests for information on ICANN's participation in the World Internet Conference which was held in Wuzhen, China:  http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/cnleaders/2015WIC/ and http://www.wicwuzhen.cn/english 

ICANN sent a contingent to the conference as part of its Strategic Goal 1.2 "Bring ICANN to the world by creating a balanced and proactive approach to regional engagement with stakeholders."

Fadi attended as CEO and gave a speech, and George Sadowsky attended as a Board member. 

Subsequent to the conference, the conference organizers announced that Fadi would co-chair a high level advisory committee for the next conference.


The Board had a call with Fadi to get a briefing.

Fadi has now posted a blog that notes that he has accepted this role in his personal capacity, and the advisory committee will meet after his term as CEO is completed in March 2016.
