Thanks. Both of these are valid and important budget requests.

The workload for anyone who chairs a PDP is significant and being able to support this work via travel support is a very positive move. Not being able to rationalise physical attendance at the 3 ICANN public meetings has been a “blocker” for some people volunteering to lead some of these groups in the past and this would definitely help.

With respect to the Council development session I would also see this as being an important project to receive funding.

Subject: [council] Community Budget Requests for FY18 - GNSO Council Submission

Councilors -

As discussed during our 19 JAN call, please find attached two FY18 Budget Request submissions on behalf of the GNSO Council.

The first is to allocate travel support funds for chairs of PDP working groups to attend ICANN meetings who might not otherwise be able.  This is aligned with the GNSO's desire to make & keep support for policy development work a priority in the budget.

The second provides for a GNSO Council Strategic Planning session, outside of the full ICANN schedule, for Councilors to meet and set priorities for the upcoming Council year.  This pilot would take place in January 2018.

Please note these request submissions are coming from the Council, and are not intended to replace or supplement requests that are coming on behalf of your SGs and Cs.   Discuss on this thread if you have any questions, edits or objections to these requests.

The deadline for submission has been extended, and requests will now be accepted until 10 FEB 2017.

Thank you,

James Bladel
