Dear All,

At the GNSO Council meeting on 17 July, the Council agreed to form a drafting 
team in response to the ICANN Board request on ICANN Geographic Regions as set 
out below.

The group is open to Councillors, constituency members and interested community 
Chuck Gomes and Olga Cavalli have already volunteered to be on the drafting 

Please let me know whether you would like to join this drafting team with Rob 
Hoggarth as staff support by Thursday 31 July so that we can identify a regular 
meeting schedule.

"The Board recognized that any potential change to ICANN Geographic Regions 
would have "wide-spread effect" in ICANN and that it should seek the views of 
the other Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees before taking 
further action. The ICANN Board directed Staff to summarize and analyze that 
community input and to subsequently prepare a report for consideration to the 

The GNSO is kindly requested to provide input, if any, on the suggested 
formation of a community wide working group, and its mandate.

Staff is targeting a Board report, summarizing all responses received, by early 
September. We hope that the GNSO will be able to provide input on the relative 
importance of the Geographic Regions structure to the At-Large community in 
general and to the value of a community-wide working group specifically, by 
that time. We expect that the proposed working group, if ultimately formed, 
will reach out to the broader community to seek further input and perspectives."

Thank you.
Kind regards,


Glen de Saint Géry
GNSO Secretariat
