Dear all

Please find attached in .docx and .pdf an updated Template regarding the
removal of the ICANN Board. This is Work Item WP1-7A in Working Party 1.

This update focuses on the power to spill the whole Board, following
discussion at the CCWG that individual director removal could form part of

regarding the mechanisms, as it defines a "Community Council" as a vehicle

I look forward to your thoughts and feedback.

Many thanks,

Jordan Carter
