Thanks a lot Kurt for consulting with us about this and doing the survey I
really appreciate it and I personally cannot think of anything else at this
stage to add.

Just a couple of comments: face to face meetings are indeed important but
decisions on location should be made based on the greater number of people
who can attend the meeting ( considering visa issues etc) I understand that
we were under time  pressure this time. Just flagging that issue.

I also think having a strict deadline helped us a lot to move forward and
compromise on issues.  But perhaps next time, if there is any law that will
come into effect that affects ICANN or if any issue needs attention the
board and the council should prepare for it well in advance. Working on
charter was an important stage of the work which the council should pay
attention to. The workload was way too much.
Thw leadership of epdp and staff should be given adequate support to be
able to handle the workload. A better budgeting should be taken into

All just suggestions that come to my mind. No need to take action on
anything I mentioned.

Best regards
