I think there may be some confusion. The specific topic of discussion is
the selection of the location of the 4th Quarter 2006 regional meeting. 

Best regards,

Dear Mike

I am concerned to see a discussion of 
"board meetings Committee recommendations regarding ICANN meetings. 

There has been no consultation with the constituencies of the GNSO or
the Council, that I have been able to participate in. I am perhaps
missing something, since I was away from Dec. 19 - 30, and perhaps you
were able to conduct a thorough review and comment process in that time
frame. I apologize. I was only online once a day and could have missed
this opportunity.

I recall the discussion from the transcription, and in my view, this is
a discussion without consideration of full input and facts regarding the
needs of all the players. But, I trusted that there would be a valid
outreach effort. I recall that there was some discussion of "individual"
comments, perhaps presented anonymously.

When we "build" organizations, and processes, we have to be careful to
take into account the full range of work needed.

I am very aware of the risks and cautions of the ITU's approach to
regional meetings and inputs. I am concerned that ICANN is getting
guidance to follow that very flawed process, in this stage of ICANN's

But, perhaps I'll see a detailed consultation plan from the meetings
committee, and thus, my concerns will be addressed by the process of

I count on that.
