Hello everyone,

The WG chairs have asked me to follow up on the possibility of inviting
subject matter experts to assist the WG with our deliberations. As the
Working Group Guidelines contemplate that these decisions are to be made by
the WG as a whole, we cannot extend any invitations without the WG¹s
agreement to do so. As we are currently trying to finalize the Initial
Report, it would therefore be helpful to the WG, if you plan to suggest
names, to also provide the following:
* A brief description of the specific topic(s) the expert is expected to
* How the expert¹s qualifications and/or expertise on the matter (e.g.
legal, technical) would address a gap in the WG¹s research,
representativeness or other aspect of our work
* Whether it would be more helpful to have the expert provide a written
briefing note to the WG in lieu of, or prior to, a call
* How much time (if a call is preferred) to allocate and any scheduling
preferences (please see the latest draft Work Plan, attached)
Here is the relevant provision from the WG Guidelines:

"If the WG determines that it needs additional educational briefings
occurring upfront or as issues emerge during deliberations, it should
identify its specific requests to the [Chartering Organization] including
subject matter(s), type(s) of expertise, objectives, and costs. If
additional costs are involved, prior approval must be obtained from the
[Chartering Organization]. Additionally, a WG may, at any stage throughout
its deliberations, decide to seek input from self formed groups and/or
individuals with the aim of further informing WG members about matters that
fall within the remit of the WG and which are of interest to the ICANN

Thanks and cheers
