Jeff, It  is too much to ask for an additional trip of any length this year,
if at all.  I am copying the Council list so everyone is informed that this
request is coming from one of the PPSC work teams.


The new Council ought to prioritize this work along with all of its other
work, as its first effort at and after Seoul.  I certainly do not think it
is as big a priority as several other ongoing efforts on Council and in WGs.

Subject: [gnso-ppsc-pdp] Possible Face to Face Meeting


Dear All,

As most of you are aware, the PDP-WT has made slow progress on the new
Policy Development Process partly due to limited attendance and
participation over the last few months. With the new Council taking its seat
in Seoul, we have been discussing ways to speed up the process and come to a
timely agreement on the new Policy Development Process. As a result, we
would like to propose to organise a 1.5 - 2 day face to face meeting of the
PDP-WT. The objective of this meeting would be to wrap up the discussions on
the different stages and reach agreement on the overall recommendations and
proposed changes to the ICANN by-laws in order to implement the new PDP. 

To facilitate such a meeting, ICANN has informed me that it would take care
of arranging the logistics and provide funding to a limited number of
participants (e.g. 1 participant from each constituency, Advisory Committee,
etc.). Taking into account the geographic spread of the participants of the
WT, the proposal would be to organize the meeting on the US East Coast, e.g.
Washington DC. Of course, remote participation facilities would be made
available for those not able to travel to the meeting. Ideally such a
meeting would be held before the end of the year or in early January at the

The WT might want to discuss this proposal in further detail at its meeting
coming Thursday and on the e-mail list prior to Seoul. If there is support
for the organisation of such a face to face meeting, the next step would be
to confirm a date and location as soon as possible so that the necessary
arrangements can be made in a timely fashion.

Please let me know your thoughts.
