Dear WG Members,

While there have already been some emails exchanged, I wanted to take the opportunity to welcome you all and thank you for volunteering for the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures Policy Development Process Working Group (PDP WG). In addition to the information already shared in the call for volunteers, I wanted to provide you with some further details concerning next steps.

First meeting
Monday 22 February at 22:00 UTC

Statements of Interest
The majority of Members have already completed this task, but as requested by the GNSO Secretariat in the confirmation email that you received after signing up for this WG, please provide a Statement of Interest by going to: https://community.icann.org/x/cYLg if you have not done so already. You will need to use your Confluence Login ID and Password to access this and other workspaces within the Confluence wiki site. If you are a new Confluence user, your ID and Password should have been provided to you; please let gnso-secs at icann.org<https://mm.icann.org/mailman/listinfo/gnso-rds-pdp-wg> know if you have not yet received them. The current list of members and observers, including SOIs provided, can be found here: https://community.icann.org/x/Ogp1Aw.

WG Leadership
Per the Council's resolution, until such time as the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP WG selects a chair(s) for the WG and that chair(s) is/are confirmed by the GNSO Council, the GNSO Council liaison to the WG, Paul McGrady, will serve as the interim chair. For those interested in volunteering for a leadership position in the WG, please review the attached document, which outlines the tasks and expected skills of a GNSO WG Chair. If you would like to put forth your name for a WG leadership position, please feel free to do so on the email list in advance of the first meeting as it is hoped that the selection of the WG Chair(s) will take place during that first meeting.

Recommended materials to review prior to the first meeting
Please review the materials posted on the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP WG's wiki (see https://community.icann.org/x/PAp1Aw) prior to the first meeting, especially:

  *   The Final Issue Report (http://gnso.icann.org/en/issues/new-gtlds/subsequent-procedures-final-issue-04dec15-en.pdf);
  *   The PDP WG Charter (http://gnso.icann.org/en/issues/new-gtlds/subsequent-procedures-charter-21jan16-en.pdf<https://community.icann.org/x/E4xlAw>);
  *   The GNSO Working Group Guidelines (http://gnso.icann.org/council/annex-1-gnso-wg-guidelines-08apr11-en.pdf);
  *   The PDP Manual (http://gnso.icann.org/council/annex-2-pdp-manual-13jun13-en.pdf)

Newcomer webinars
For those that are new to a GNSO Working Group and/or the GNSO Policy Development Process, we'll be hosting two separate webinars in the near future that are intended to aid newcomers to the GNSO to learn about the administrative workings of a WG (conference call facilities, Adobe Connect, wiki, etc) as well as the GNSO Policy Development Process. You will be receiving further information about these in a separate email. The WG may also identify needs for additional introductory webinars or tutorial materials.

Should you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
