Dear BC Members
I am pleased to forward an announcement about a very important briefing/webinar provided by ICANN that the BC members have noted as of priority: ATRT activities Webinar.
The webinar noted will provide an overview of relevant information regarding the ATRT, and will be transcribed, so anyone 'off line' on August 31, can still access the briefing. As the ATRT, and other AoC implementation issues, as well as other Review topics are of concern to the BC, I do encourage you to participate in this webinar.
I have asked Benedetta Rossi, our BC Secretariat, to update the BC calendar, and we will treat this as a priority event for the BC's calendar. [e.g. I won't hold a BC call in this time slot. :-)]
As chair, I want to promote participation of business, so I do ask that you distribute this to your association members, and internally, to your business colleagues, as appropriate to your company's participation in ICANN.
Marilyn Cade, BC Chair
