[atrt2] Draft agenda for first ATRT2 face to face meeting

Looks pretty good Steve and thanks to staff for putting together a
proposed agenda.  To elaborate on a couple of prior points, the morning
session on Day 2 will be important to hear the observations and
perspectives of senior ICANN staff with respect to the Affirmation of
Commitment (AoC) review processes and the level of assimilation of
Accountability and Transparency under the AoC across the organization.
Since ATRT2 members have not put forward specific "asks" of ICANN staff
for the first face-to-face meeting, and to allow adequate time for
preparation by ICANN staff, I would think that an overview of prior AoC
review team processes and a stocktaking of implementation by ICANN of
those review teams' recommendations would be in order.  Adequate time for
Q&A by ATRT2 members and with senior ICANN staff would also be
appropriate.  I mentioned that the CEO, COO, General Counsel and Head of
Policy attended the ATRT1 first face-to-face meeting.  It seems to me that
this level of representation and any other that you or Fadi felt
appropriate would be useful. This is my view only and I ask for other
ATRT2 member views on the agenda as well.  In fairness, we should give
ICANN staff any additional guidance (and sufficient time to prepare) for
next week's interaction.

On another point, I also share Avri's view that ICANN staff's inputs
cannot "set" the mission of ATRT2.  The mission of ATRT2 is set by the
Affirmation of Commitments and ATRT2 needs to independently agree to the
terms of reference and methodologies of its work using the AoC as its
guide.  The legitimacy of ATRT2's work and work product will be judged, in
part, by its ability to act with autonomy and objectivity in its review.
Of course, this means we will have to do our own analysis of the prior
review team processes and implementation of recommendations by ICANN.
ATRT2's work is clearly different from ATRT1 since ATRT1 was the first
review under the AoC and we were sailing off into unchartered waters.
ATRT2's work, to a large degree, will focus on the results of prior
reviews and will take a measure of ICANN's progress on Accountability and
Transparency as a result of prior review team work and implementation
efforts.  As such, hearing from senior ICANN staff and Fadi is a critical
input to ATRT2s work at the outset of our process.
