[ccwg-internet-governance] Public session for CCWG / Singapore meeting

Thank you, Olivier, for your note.

I can confirm that we have received no objections to this proposal.  So
there is an SO/AC/SG consensus to have the CCWG Session on Internet
Governance have its session take place in lieu of the SO/AC High Interest
Topic Session in Singapore.

I would note that I may not be in a position to immediately "confirm" that
the session will "indeed take place as proposed" or precisely when it is
scheduled on Monday in Singapore.

I can say that ICANN staff will move to get the session on the main schedule
and will confirm timing as soon as we can.

In the meantime,  Ergys and Alex  will be the ICANN staff  in  support of
the CCWG session so that preparations can begin.   In addition, Brad White
would be available to serve as moderator for this session.

Dear David,

following my email which you'll find below, there have only been answers of
*support* to have the CCWG Session on Internet Governance have its session
take place in lieu of the SO/AC High Interest Topic Session in Singapore.
There is also Broad consensus from SO/AC Chairs.

I also note that a motion has been made on the call of the CCWG on 13 Feb
2014 and this was supported on the call. Motion called by Marilyn Cade &
Seconded by Ken Stubbs. Full consensus and No objections on the call.

With full support from SO, AC and SG Chairs recorded both on the SO/AC
Chairs and also the SO/AC Discussion list, I would like to formally ask you
on behalf of the CCWG to confirm that this session will indeed be taking
place as proposed.

Kind regards,

Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond
