Subject: Invitation - RSVP - ICANN Leadership Program (LP) 2020

Dear Keith,

The ICANN Academy Leadership Program (LP) during the ICANN64 Meeting in Kobe<https://community.icann.org/display/LTP/2019+Leadership+Program> was another success and we are now preparing the 7thedition that is scheduled to take place 5-6 March 2020, two days prior to the official start of ICANN67 in Cancún, Mexico.

For this program, 1 (one) seat is reserved for a representative from the GNSO Council. The program is designed for current and incoming leaders, helping to increase understanding of the complexity of ICANN and to develop facilitation skills, as well as building a network with other leaders. We are aware that understanding ICANN as an organization, the topics discussed within ICANN, and interaction within other stakeholder groups can be challenging for incoming leaders, but sometimes also for experienced leaders. ICANN and the community are making considerable efforts in order to help incoming leaders have a good start to their terms and to provide current leaders the opportunity to strengthen their leadership and facilitation skills. Opportunities for Leadership Program participants include the following:

  *   Meet leaders from the other SOs/ACs and get an insight of the functionality and issues in other groups
  *   Discuss current ICANN topics in an in-depth manner
  *   Deepen the understanding of key ICANN processes
  *   Develop facilitation and leadership skills, focused personal effectiveness to run meetings and foster processes

A preliminary program is attached to this email. Kindly note that this is subject to change.
Accommodation for participants will be covered between Wednesday and Thursday, 4-5 March 2020, and participants will receive a stipend. Please note that flights will NOT be covered under this program, as incoming and current leaders are normally covered by the regular ICANN travel support. Please ensure that the leaders you select are being covered by ICANN Travel Support for their flights to Cancun for ICANN67.

We would like to ask you to identify one incoming or current leader from your stakeholder group who is interested and available to participate in this program. We recommend that you also identify an alternate candidate. Kindly forward us the names and email addresses of the endorsed individuals no later than Wednesday, 13 November 2019, and ask them to register here<https://forms.gle/zpt1gSSayKGgjVAD9> by Friday, 15 November 2019 at 23:59 UTC.

We hope this program will meet the needs of your community. All participants will be encouraged to partake in an open exchange of their views, as this will help facilitate cross-constituency collaboration during their terms.

We are very happy to answer any questions you may have on this exciting LP and look forward to having your group’s participants confirmed.

Kind regards,
Sandra Hoferichter, Chair of the ICANN Academy Working Group
Ergys Ramaj, VP, Public Responsibility Support
