Nice to hear from you, Mike! 
When you get into Seoul, if you are looking for where the majority of the BC members who are here are 'hanging' out, on Sunday a.m., you will find some in Emerald Room and some in Sapphire Room beginning at 9 a.m.
At 11:30 a.m. probably EVERYONE from the BC, as well as others, will be in Emerald, since Kurt Pritz is doing an update on the new gTLD process.   It will be great to have a chance to talk to you and also to Chris Martin regarding both topics while you are both here in Seoul. thanks for making that offer via the BC list. 
One point:  I wanted to note that on Wednesday at 11 a.m., there is also an important meeting related to the Nom Committee [NomComm] Presentation of the WG Report -- I believe that BC members may be interested in that report, since it has significant implications for how to improve the NomComm process and the NomComm.
Mike, I am not sure if you have that meeting on your agenda already. That meeting, just so all understand, is at the same time as the GNSO Policy Council meeting, and also competes with the DNSSEC Workshop.  For the convenience of the BC members and Mike, I've pasted that meeting below.

The first positions expressed in 2008 by the WG needed to be validated once terminated the process of review of other key structures of ICANN, which are strictly interlinked with the review of the NomCom. The NomCom review WG has recently updated the initial findings from the early phases of the review and presents now its draft recommendations, for public consultation.The outcome of this review is particularly important in consideration of the high significance of the role plaid by the Nominating Committee of ICANN in terms of selection of individuals that will be called to play a key role of governance of the organization.Who should attend?

Colleagues -

I am heading off to Seoul today as your elected 
representative to the 
2010 NomCom.  As noted in a previous message, I 
would appreciate 
hearing from you with regard to both your views on how to 
improve the 
NomCom process, as well as your suggestions for candidates to be 

recruited.  I have not yet seen a message from staff with regard to 

the openings to be filled, but will pass that along when I do.

I hope 
to talk to a number of you face to face in Seoul.

Best regards,

Mike Roberts
