Fyi regarding an upcoming informational webinar by ICANN staff, particularly
directed to newcomers to the ICANN world, but perhaps useful for many of us
still struggling to understand the big picture.  It will be archived as
well, but unfortunately will only be offered in English.

WEBINAR: Policy Development at ICANN
How You Can Help Shape the Future of the Internet
20 May 2010 at 12.00 UTC and 19.00 UTC 

On Thursday 20 May at 12.00 UTC and 19.00 UTC, ICANN Policy Staff will host
a webinar that introduces newcomers to the world of ICANN and policy
development. The webinar will provide an overview of ICANN as an
organization, what issues ICANN policy addresses, who develops policy at
ICANN (and how), and most importantly, how you can become involved and help
ICANN to shape the future of the Internet. This webinar provides useful,
actionable information to you if you are wondering whether a role in
Internet policy development could benefit your or your organization’s
long-term goals. 
The two sessions are duplicates, scheduled to accommodate different time
zones. Each session, scheduled to run for 90 minutes, will be conducted in
English only. The meeting will be run in Adobe Connect with a slide
presentation along with a dial-in conference bridge for audio. 

Participants will have opportunity to ask questions at the end of each
session. During the course of the webinar, questions may be submitted using
the chat function of Adobe Connect. If you are not able to participate in
either of the live sessions, the slides and MP3 will be made available
shortly after the meeting. The policy staff is always available to answer
any questions that you email to policy-staff at icann.org.

In order to participate, please RSVP via email to the GNSO Secretariat
(gnso.secretariat at gnso.icann.org) to receive the call details. Please
indicate which call you would like to join, 12.00 UTC or 19.00 UTC (to
convert those times into your local time, see:
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedform.html). We will send you an
e-mail reminder before the event with log-in and dial-in details. Please DO
NOT RSVP to any other ICANN staff members e-mail address.

About ICANN: 
To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into
your computer - a name or a number. That address has to be unique so
computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique
identifiers across the world, so that there can be one global Internet. The
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) was formed in
1998. It is a not-for-profit partnership of people from all over the world
dedicated to keeping the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. It
promotes competition and develops policy on the Internet’s unique
identifiers, primarily the domain name system (DNS), IP addresses, and port
numbers. For further information, please visit http://www.icann.org
