Steve, Sarah, Tony, Antonio, Claudio, Wolf, BC members, 

Guys, sorry, things are moving quickly here. 
Wolf has met with me and Antonio during the AoC Review Team open session and we have identified with his input a serious problem with the amount of time previously allocated to the discussion of this topic. 
Accordingly, as noted earlier, on today's 6 p.m. call which is open to all members of all these constituencies Wolf will take ten minutes to outline the timeline, including that the evaluation team will meet Thursday. The rest of the agenda will be the open roundup. 
Secondly, Tony and I consulted with Wolf and have modified the CSG agenda accordingly to allocate 30 minutes to discussion.  I realize that there are three applicants for these seats within the BC. We will not evaluate any candidates in this session.  I will urge all of our members to be very sensitive to the fact this is an open session.  In the meantime, the CSG execomm members can discuss how to accelerate the development of a process to develop the advancement of names from this SG.  
I understand that members are extremely interested and are asking for insight and involvement in a CSG process. This email is conveying that feedback to the CSG ExComm members. 
I will remind all that there is a second one hour call on Tuesday, which presently presents an opportunity for discussion about topics that arise on Tuesday.  This call/meeting can be reconfirmed on Monday's call/meeting at 6 p.m.
the final list of candidates AND updates on agenda for the CSG segment. The other material in the agendas with the briefing re the Breakfast is unchanged.  
My apologies to the BC list that I am changing the CSG agenda.  The phone numbers remain unchanged, so don't lose the earlier email, but use this version of the agendas.
Finally, an update to all of you, I have invited Markus Kummer,Executive Secretariat of the IGF as a guest to the breakfast tomorrow.  I did that after talking to a few folks about the topics for the breakfast and apologize for the surprise and that I didn't have a chance for full consultation.

Subject: FW: [bc-gnso] Notes form GAC-GNSO joint meeting
Date: Mon, 8 Mar 2010 04:45:05 -0500

This briefing is an update that is available to be distributed, as you chose, by the ISP and IPC representatives.
I have provided a briefing on the breakfast because of the mutual interest, even for those who are not here in person.
secondly, we have confirmed business guests, and I've cc'd them as they are invited tothe breakfast, and all other sessions. 
For others who are inviting guests, I need the names from you for seat assignments. See request for onsite assistance to place the seating cards and make last minute adjustments and assist in on site hosting. I also need 'volunteer sherpas' to take care of the special guests and we are likely to be asking that of you on site. ===============================================

Please arrive a little eary to be sure you are in the room by 7:50 a.m. since the Board and staff and guests will arrive at 8 a.m. The Breakfast will end at 9:45 a.m.
there are there topics for the breakfast -- the third was collaboratively developed with Peter Dengate Thrush on Saturday.
Remember that there are a number of non member guests -- some from ISPs, including from India and Kenya and AfrISPA. A few of our local Business guests from the Computer Society of Kenya from Sunday's dinner will join Waudo Siganga, our WITSA member of the BC.  This breakfast is intended to be a dialogue between people, and the Board has repeatedly told me, as has the Chair, that they wish to listen and to have a dialogue. 
I want to mention to all of you remote participants that although the Board did have a competing commitment with the GNSO policy council dinner, Peter Dengate Thrush, Chair, accepted the invitation from Waudo and me to bring some of the Board members to the Reception and to make remarks, with the other Board members and the ICANN staff starting the dinner with the GNSO Policy Councilors. The V.Chair of the Policy Council graciously met with Peter and me to collaborate on that arrangement.
the Board who came were thrilled to meet the local business community and their enthusiam for theort of our local BC member, and the support that we provided was very well received and several board members congratulated me for the initiative of the BC. Since the "tool kit" of services and support by staff to enable us to focus more on outreach and recruitment is on our agenda for  discussion with the Board during the breakfast, we can expect a more receptive and interested 'ear' and attitude to our desire to do more ourselves but with appropriate ICANN support to our efforts to grow and enhance the participation, overall in the CSG's constituencies. 
SEATING:  There will be a sort of rough allocation of assigned seats, with my effort to put new people with one or two 'sherpa', that is a seasoned member of one of the constituencies/or two, who will join them at their table with the Board/Staff and ensure that everyone gets introduced, socializes a bit, etc. STAY TUNED TO GET AN ASSIGNMENT. 
I am inviting Steve DelBianco, Tony Harris and need one more volunteer to help with distributing the seating assignments.  You will need to arrive at 7:15 a.m. at the Venue. 
The room for the breakfast will be distributed shortly, as soon as I get it from ICANN. 
THREE TOPICS for table discussion:  Some board members and staff will be leaving at 9 and 9:30 a.m. for other commitments.  There will be non members [potential members] at each table.  After the breakfast, please escort these folks into the CSG meeting, if they are available to join us. I would ask that the 'sherpas' play a bit of a introductory role to your colleagues, as needed. 
[ SUB THEME : what does this mean? How are we all actualizing this? Note that this is not merely looking to the GAC, but understanding that this is a basic foundational principle to ICANN]
2. CHALLENGES TO BUSINESS PARTICIPATION AND OUTREACH/MAKING ICANN MEANINGFUL TO BUISNESS USES -- SPECIAL FOCUS ON DEVELOPING COUNTRIES -- Led by Waudo Siganga.  [will be discussed at each table but Waudo will also make a few comments, which will then lead to discussion in the open session
Note: this topic was developed by Peter Dengate Thrush, CEO, in collaboration with Marilyn Cade as a topic of beneficial overarching relevance to the three constituencies and to ICANN.-to prepare for this discussion, please review the Strategic Plan/Operational Plan references to ICANN's related activities.
