Public Comment Encouraged on Revised GNSO Stakeholder Group Charters
1 July 2009
As part of the comprehensive GNSO Improvements effort, last year the ICANN
Board approved the formation of four new GNSO Stakeholder Groups (SGs).
After considering proposed SG Charters that were submitted by the community
and posted for public comment , the ICANN Board passed a Resolution in May
directing its Structural Improvements Committee (SIC) and ICANN Staff to
revise the SG Charters to make them consistent with the Board’s GNSO
Improvements Report (and related Resolutions).
Background and Explanation
Stakeholder Groups are integral elements of a new, restructured GNSO, and
are intended to be lightweight “caucuses” bringing together like-minded
international groups (Constituencies) to elect the best representatives to
fill the SG’s allotted Council seats. Stakeholder Groups ensure that the
ratio of Council seats among SGs remains the same while encouraging the
formation of new Constituencies and the continued growth and diversification
of the GNSO community. The overall GNSO Improvements effort and the role SGs
will play in that arena is more fully described in the Stakeholder Group
section of the GNSO Improvements Information Web Page.
The SIC provided the community with the revised charters linked below and
discussed these documents during ICANN’s recent Sydney meeting. The revised
charters are posted to further encourage public comment via email to
gnso-stakeholder-charters at icann.org by 21 July 2009.

The Process From Here
At the end of this public comment forum period, the ICANN Staff will provide
a summary/analysis of the comments submitted regarding each Stakeholder
Group submission. That summary/analysis will be shared with the community
and the Board. The Board will subsequently take action on each Stakeholder
Group petition and charter as it deems appropriate.
Deadline and How to Submit Comments
A 21-day public consultation forum has been opened from 30 June through 21
July 2009. The formal Public Comment Forum Box is located here:
To submit comments: Comments on the documents are welcome via email to
gnso-stakeholder-charters at icann.org.
To view comments: An archive of all comments received will be publicly
posted at http://forum.icann.org/lists/gnso-stakeholder-charters/.
