> ICANN Board Resolution on Community-Wide Working Group to 
> Review ICANN's Geographic Regions
> http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-07nov08.htm#_Toc87682556
> Resolved (2008.11.07.08), the Board authorizes the formation 
> of a community-wide working group to study and review the 
> issues related to the definition of the ICANN Geographic 
> Regions, consult with all stakeholders, and submit proposals 
> for community and Board consideration relating to the current 
> definition of the ICANN Geographic Regions. The Board 
> requests that all interested Supporting Organizations and 
> Advisory Committees nominate two individuals to serve on the 
> working group, the composition of which the Board would like 
> to approve at the December Board meeting.
> Resolved (2008.11.07.09), the Board requests the working 
> group, as its first order of business, to draft and seek 
> community input on a proposed charter, and submit the draft 
> document for community review, and Board consideration and 
> approval at the March 2009 Board meeting in Mexico City. In 
> drafting the charter, the working group is directed to focus, 
> but not limit, its work on the criteria for assigning 
> countries, dependencies and recognized geopolitical entities 
> to a Geographic Region, and to take into consideration the 
> relevant ccNSO Board paper, the recent GNSO comments, and 
> other community advice - including the GAC's original advice 
> on the topic in 2000 
> <http://www.icann.org/en/committees/gac/communique-14jul00.htm
>  >. Further, the Board directs ICANN Staff to support these efforts.
