Dear Councilors:

We are seeking volunteers to participate in an initial discussion regarding the eventual board consultation on the EPDP Phase 2 SSAD recommendations.

In its adoption of the EPDP Phase 2 report<https://community.icann.org/display/gnsocouncilmeetings/Motions+24+September+2020>, the Council resolved, “Noting some of the questions surrounding the financial sustainability of SSAD and some of the concerns expressed within the different minority statements, the GNSO Council requests a consultation with the ICANN Board as part of the delivery of the GNSO Council Recommendations Report to the ICANN Board to discuss these issues, including whether a further cost-benefit analysis should be conducted before the ICANN Board considers all SSAD-related recommendations for adoption.” (emphasis added)

The Board recently responded<https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/correspondence/botterman-to-fouquart-01dec20-en.pdf> to Philippe’s letter<https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/correspondence/fouquart-to-botterman-29oct20-en.pdf>, and noted the Council’s request for a consultation. The letter also provides: [the Board] “welcomes the Council’s suggestion for an initial dialogue among GNSO Council and Board members, and will support such a conversation prior to undertaking these steps.”

In line with above, Council Leadership has requested Support Staff to send out a call for volunteers for those interested in participating in an initial discussion regarding this consultation. Council volunteers will be asked to attend an initial brainstorming meeting to discuss the eventual consultation. During this brainstorming session, volunteers may discuss, for example, how many councilors should participate in the consultation, if the group should be representative, strategy for how to approach the session, et.al.

If you are interested in participating, please respond to this message by Friday, 11 December.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Caitlin Tubergen
Policy Director
