Anyone want to take odds on the likelihood that the referenced multistakeholder meeting is scheduled at the same time as our Council meeting?

Objet : Rép : Follow-up to the second JAS WG report

Dear Katim,

thank you for your kind email and your suggestion which was received very positively by members of the JAS working group when the discussion came up.

Both the GNSO and the ALAC charters for this working group include the following sentence:

"4. All communication to the ICANN Board regarding the work of this Working Group shall be through the respective SO/AC unless expressly approved by the respective SO/AC."

However, a direct interaction between the various ICANN communities and the JAS working group participants has always been very welcome by the ALAC. After all, the JAS working group is open to all participants, GAC and Board members included.

Your suggestion was therefore discussed during the ALAC monthly call on 24 May 2011.
A motion for an invitation of interested parties was presented and voted on by the committee, as follows:

--- cut here ---
The ALAC is pleased to note interest from the Board and other stakeholders towards the second Milestone Report of the Cross-community Joint Applicant Support Working Group (JAS WG). To this extent, the ALAC therefore welcomes the organisation of a conference call -- for interested members of the JAS WG, ICANN Board, GNSO, GAC, At-Large and other interested community members -- to discuss the status and way forward for the JAS WG. We also request the creation of a multi-stakeholder meeting on this issue to be held at the ICANN meeting in Singapore.
--- cut here ---

A vote was performed with 13 out of 15 ALAC members being present on the call.
It resulted in a unanimous 13 yes, 0 objections and 0 abstentions.

I therefore can give you the green light from the ALAC to proceed forward with setting up such a call, and to consider the request for the creation of a multi-stakeholder meeting on the JAS issue to be held at the ICANN meeting in Singapore.
I understand that the current standard call times for the JAS working group are Tuesday 13:00 UTC and Friday 13:00 UTC. May I therefore suggest the consideration of any of those future times:

- Tuesday 31 May 2011 - 13:00 UTC
- Friday 3 June 2011 - 13:00 UTC
- Tuesday 7 June 2011 - 13:00 UTC
- Friday 10 June 2011 - 13:00 UTC

In the interest of swift synchronization, I am CC'ing this message to Gisella and Karla who will be able to coordinate call participants, but I would kindly ask you that you coordinate the Board's participant list as well as the GAC's participant list.

While thanking you again for your suggestion, I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kindest regards,

Olivier Crépin-Leblond
ALAC Chair

Dear Katim,

thank you very much for your kind message. From discussions that have taken place in the JAS working group, I am aware that the group would be very interested indeed in such an interaction. As far as the ALAC is concerned, I will ask for this question to be added to the agenda of our forthcoming monthly call, tomorrow Tuesday. I'll get back to you in due course.
Warmest regards,

Dear Olivier and Stéphane,

First, let me congratulate you and your teams, as well as the JAS WG on their second report.  I've had the opportunity to go through it, and it's quality work.

To follow on the second JAS WG report, I would like to ask if you'd be interested in organizing a conference call for interested board members and the GNSO, GAC, and At-Large reps to discuss the status and way forward for the recently released JAS WG report. The idea was presented at the recently concluded board retreat in Istanbul that a public meeting on the JAS WG report (with the participation of the board and GAC) will be helpful, and toward this end, it would be useful to have a conference call.  Please let me know if this makes sense to you and let me know when you want to have the call, if indeed you want to have it.

Again, thanks to all of you and your teams for the great work you're doing on the issue!  I hope we'll all be able to come together to have a useful program we all can be proud of.  Have a great week, and best wishes!
