Can you help me, and others who may be equally confused, with an example of
what we are talking about?  Public comment periods have usually come about
as a result of things that arise during the course of the year.  What topics
would we know in advance and thus need to use this new template?  Sorry, I'm
a little dense on this one.

ICANN is introducing a more formalized approach to developing public
comments for the public meetings. We have a deadline of Jan 21 to provide
input, and a template is provided for submission by the Chair of the


I'd like to use a nomination process from the members, supported by
suggestions from the officers/councilors, to put together a BC reviewed


This will help us tremendously in our preparation for upcoming ICANN
meetings and allow us to return to gathering member input prior to the
actual meeting. Ad hoc items may be added, but in general, this is an
improvement which I hope we can maximize contributing to.



Bene, would you put together a reminder schedule, and also the CSG can
brainstorm some ideas and distribute to the members early in January, for
your advice and improvements. In the meantime, we will add this process to
our preparation process for all public meetings, and our Secretariat will
start a timely reminder process for us so that our BC prep calls include
this topic in a timely manner for all face to face meetings.

Following the process (attached) that is now in place since June 2011 (based
on the implementation of ATRT recommendation 21), ICANN is instituting a
more formal approach for time for me to ask for input for the 2012 Upcoming
Public Comments list to be published at:




Following the process, after receiving input, ICANN will publish the list
for 2012 by February and make another call for updates after March meeting
in Costa Rica.
