Jeff, all,
I fully support the idea of inviting the ICANN Board. A few days back, I asked the Council leadership as WG chair to send an invitation to engage early with the IGO-INGO PDP WG to the GAC and you have surely seen this on the Council list. 

Thus, I guess the Council should follow such requests coming from WGs as standard practice and not discuss them individually. I am sure that the Council leadership will spot the unlikely case of a request not being appropriate and then raise it with the Council.

The question that we might wish to discuss, though, is whether such correspondence should go through the Council or its leadership at all or whether it can also be made directly from the WG chairs. We had a vivid discussion on this in the IGO-INGO WG and it might be helpful for other WGs, too, to get some guidance on this from the Council.

> The provisional leadership of the Policy and Implementation WG would like to invite ICANN Board members to participate in and/or observe the WG activities at any time.  Although they would like to do this, they believe that such an invitation would be more appropriate coming from the GNSO Council rather than the Working Group (if we agreed that this was a good idea).
