>> I wanted to call members attention to the Thursday open session on Internet Governance 11:15 a.m. -12:30 p.m. The BC has several members who are actively engaged.
>> Thursday's session has two components --Segment One - NMI focused, update and feedback.
>> Segment Two which will address the broader WSIS +10, IGF Renewal and the UNESCO Conference. This session is organized by the CCWG-IG, rather than ICANN staff. We had asked for more time, as the CCWG had wanted this to be more of a town hall, but all in all,this is a major step in the right direction as the CCWG-IG proposed this change in planning and organizing during ICANN51. It took a little back and forth but we are clearly moving toward a recognition by participants and ICANN staff that the community expects a more collaborative approach on identifying and designing ICANN's activities in IG. ICANN staff was asked at ICANN51 to update the CCWG-IG in writing. Attached is the update. The CCWG-IG welcomed the report, had some comments, and invited quarterly updates. Some discussion happened about the relationship and interaction between the community and the Staff. That topic might also have been discussed in the Thursday open session, but time really did not permit.
>> We will undertake a pilot up to BA in asking ICANN staff to be more proactive in sharing information before implementation on activities in IG.
>> Composition of the CCWG-IG - the membership of the CCWG -IG initially was very open, but in the final charter, limits on numbers of participants somehow were added. This CCWG has struggled with time availability of many of the participants. I raised a concern that the CCWG-Accountability had a good model, which allows participants to self nominate, and also allows observers. The CCWG -IG is going to update our Charter to model after the CCWG-IG to enable more flexible and open participation.
