For example:To provide better access to, and insight into, Board decisions, ICANN provides a wealth of Board meeting information online, including briefing materials, expanded minutes, and rationale statements for Board resolutions, as well as conditions for redaction of posted material. Are you finding these useful?To help advance the effectiveness of the Governmental Advisory Committee and its interaction with the Board, ICANN increased funding to support government participation in the GAC and multilingual access, and the Board-GAC Joint Working Group recently issued proposed improvements for public comment. Do you have additional suggestions?To improve the processes ICANN uses to gain public input and develop policy, ICANN's Bylaws have been translated into multiple languages, and ICANN's Public Comment Webpage has been redesigned. Is the new structure easier to use and more effective?These are just some examples of ATRT-related activities.
