I thought that ICANN is a bottom up multistakeholder system. Shouldn't we lead by example?

Hello Mary,

I would join in with the other members that have opposed the proposed restriction on computer/phone usage, although I would be interested to learn of the source of this suggestion.

However, in attempting to keep an open mind, perhaps staff can take the following recommendation back to staff/board.  I sometimes find it frustrating during the public comment period to see all the board members busily typing away at their computers, while not paying full attention to the people at the mic.

So perhaps the Board could lead by example in LA, and the entire Board could leave their cell phones and computers turned off during the Thu public forum and ICANN Board meeting.  If they find it to be a positive experience, then perhaps the community could try it in the future.

Again just trying to approach with an open mind, and encouraging the ICANN Board to lead by example.

Best regards,

Dear WG members,

After consultation with the WG chairs, we would like to propose the following as topics that we thought would benefit from further and more in-depth discussion during the WG's upcoming face-to-face facilitated session in Los Angeles on Friday 10 October.

Please reply (off list to me is fine) with your top two choices of preferred topics - note that the last option also allows anyone to add a topic (based on the group's Preliminary Conclusions and templates to date, and following the Charter questions and agreed categories A-G) that is not specifically listed below. Staff will compile a list of the top three topics selected by the most WG members for discussion at the 10 October session.

1. What rights/responsibilities and obligations should be communicated by P/P service providers to customers/registrants with regard to transfers and renewals of domain name registrations? (from Category B Question 3 - see attached report from the Transfers Issues sub-team (James and Kathy); the WG Template including Preliminary Conclusions can be reviewed at https://community.icann.org/x/ihLRAg)

2. Further discussion on Category E - Relay (see WG Templates including Preliminary Conclusions at https://community.icann.org/x/ihLRAg; specifically, the three remaining "open questions", i.e.:

(a) Should providers be required to forward hard copy notices to registrants/customers, on request, in cases where electronic communications are known to be undeliverable?
(b) Should providers be permitted to charge a reasonable fee to forward non-electronic communications that incur a cost to do so (this could include monetary costs such as charges for registered mail and/or other resource costs such as man-hours to review/strip out personal information from a communication)?
(c) If a provider chooses not to forward an allegation of illegal activity, should there be an obligation for a provider to inform a requestor when the provider does not forward its request?

3. Further discussion on Category F- Reveal (specific questions TBD depending on extent of WG discussions between now and 10 October; see draft WG Templates and current Preliminary Conclusions at

4. What aspects of the current temporary P/P specification in the 2013 RAA should be retained and/or expanded for the accreditation program? What is not in the current specification but should be? (See https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/approved-with-specs-2013-09-17-en#privacy-proxy)

5. What are the business practices that a P/P provider should disclose to potential and actual customers, as part of the accreditation program?

6. Any other suggestions not already on this list?

We attach also a suggested proposed agenda for the day - including proposed "ground rules" that have been found to have been extremely useful for focusing discussions - and a document on Collaborative Reminders prepared by our professional facilitators that similarly are intended to facilitate useful constructive discussion and outcomes based on the objectives of our session.

On behalf of the WG chairs, we look forward to your feedback on the topics for our LA discussion. Please indicate your choices as soon as possible and in any event by this Friday 3 October. Thank you!
