> Dear SO-AC Leaders and Colleagues:
> While we  all  are trying to arrange our busy schedules  for the ICANN meeting in Toronto,   I ask for your cooperation to raise awareness about this important issue.  
> This discussion document on this topic was posted for public comment at the request of the Board Governance Committee to solicit views from the ICANN community on ways to enhance the process by which the Board seeks advice from the ICANN community beyond the traditional public comment process.    This issue stems from the work undertaken in fulfillment of recommendation No. 6 from the Accountability and Transparency Review Team, and highlights an area where improvements can lead to predictability and consistency for future Board actions. 
>  The Monday session in Toronto was on the schedule as a first step  to draw attention to  this issue and to start an ongoing discussion.   Therefore, I would ask your cooperation to share this notice with your groups, even if participation in this session may not be  possible.  
> Regards,     David

>> Dear SO/AC Leaders,
>> As you may have seen, ICANN Staff posted a document on Community Input and Advice Process for public comment on 24 September (see http://www.icann.org/en/news/public-comment/input-advice-function-24sep12-en.htm). In addition, a session has been scheduled in Toronto to discuss this subject (see http://toronto45.icann.org/node/34195). The objective of this public comment forum and the discussion in Toronto is to obtain community input on the process by which the ICANN Board seeks advice from the community on topics that are not subject to formal policy development processes. It is hoped that these discussions could lead to a consistent and predictable process to be adopted by the ICANN Board for such inquiries. 
>> For the meeting in Toronto we are putting together an informal panel discussion during which we would like to hear from the different SO/ACs how they currently deal which such requests from the Board and provide their views on the questions that were also outlined in the discussion paper (see http://www.icann.org/en/news/in-focus/accountability/input-advice-function-24sep12-en.pdf):
>> Should standardized processes be created for the Board's receipt of community input and advice?
>> If so, should such a procedure be standardized across ICANN SOs/ACs, aligned with the current existing procedures, or should there be some flexibility among the SOs/ACs (certain parts are required for all, while other parts may be developed by the respective SO/Acs)
>> How should the Board request this input and advice?
>> What is the most effective and efficient method to deal with the issue topic identified? Should it be a working group, could current procedures be used? Who determines which method will be used?
>> Should working groups be chartered for each initiative?
>> How are different parts of the ICANN community expected to work together in these efforts?
>> What minimum public consultation requirements, if any, should be required within this function?
>> Who within ICANN lead this effort?
>> We would like to encourage you and/or members of your SO/AC to attend this session to share your views. If you have any suggestions for panel members, please feel free to share those off-list with me. The session takes place on Monday 15 October from 13.30 – 14.45 local time in room Metro Centre. 
>> With best regards,
>> Marika
