Under Section 22.4(b) of the Bylaws, the ICANN Secretary (i.e. John Jeffrey, General Counsel) is required to provide a Board Notice to the Empowered Community Administration and the five Decisional Participants following Board approval of the IANA budget (see https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/governance/bylaws-en/#article22). The notice that was sent was therefore titled “Notice of Board Approval of FY19 IANA Operating Plan and Budget”, and signed by John in his capacity as ICANN Secretary.
As you noted, however, delivery of this Notice of Board Approval launches the Rejection Process set out in Annex D of the Bylaws. The 21-day Rejection Action Petition Period relating to the FY19 IANA Budget and Operating Plan has thus been initiated and will end at 23:59 Pacific time on 1 March 2018 (or 07:59 UTC on 2 March 2018). Should a Decisional Participant in the Empowered Community receive and decide to accept such a petition within this 21-day period, the 8-day period to obtain the support of at least one other Decisional Participant will end at 23:59 Pacific time on 8 March 2018 (or 07:59 UTC on 9 March).
In the event that a petition is accepted by a Decisional Participant and supported by at least one other Decisional Participant, the Empowered Community Administration may direct ICANN organization to convene a Community Forum on the topic. In this case, the period for any such Community Forum (including any that may be held at ICANN61) will expire at 23:59 Pacific time on 29 March 2018 (or 07:59 UTC on 30 March).
Please note that as this Empowered Community power relates to the IANA Budget and Operating Plan, a Rejection Action Petition is not valid unless it includes a rationale “based on one or more significant issues that were specifically raised in the applicable public comment period(s) relating to perceived inconsistencies with the Mission, purpose and role set forth in ICANN's Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, the global public interest, the needs of ICANN's stakeholders, financial stability, or other matter of concern to the community”.
Please see Article 2, Annex D of the ICANN Bylaws for the full details of the Rejection Process: https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/governance/bylaws-en/#annexD.
Finally, staff notes that the Empowered Community Administration webpage and mailing list has been updated to reflect the most recent appointments to the Empowered Community Administration from each Decisional Participant (see https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/ec-administration-2017-05-25-en), and we will post the Secretary’s Notice shortly to the Empowered Community Administration Correspondence web page.

Although this is called Secretary’s Notice of Board Approval of FY19 IANA Operating Plan and Budget it looks to me that this is a Board Notice for a Rejection Action (“Rejection Action Board Notice”) as defined in Section 2.2. (a) of the Annex D of the Bylaws. Am I correct? If yes, could we stick to the terminology used in the Bylaws? Otherwise it might get very confusing. Thank you!
