  • Thread-topic: [council] TOPICS - Agenda Board meeting with GNSO Council - Sunday March 13, 4pm 5:30 pm

I thought we had until COB (which it's not yet for me) and had planned to take 
advantage of it given that today is my first day back in the office after the 
GAC-Board meeting.

I would prefer that the second topic be broadened to discuss more generally how 
the GNSO community can factor earlier into the policy development process GAC 
advice to the Board. (Yes, I am aware that my suggestion presumes that it 
should do so. I have no objection to a discussion of that as long as there is 
some discussion of the "how" as well.)  If that can be done differently, 
perhaps there will be fewer inconsistencies - or at least greater clarity - in 
the future.  The current silo-ing does not seem to work very well, IMHO.

As the deadline for communicating our topics to the Board is today, I have 
asked Olga and Glen, who are looking after our agenda for SF, to forward the 2 
topics below:

"Consumer Choice, Competition and Innovation: context of the Board resolution"

"The role of the GNSO community in addressing any new items that come out of 
the GAC/BD discussions on new gTLDs.  More specifically, to the extent that 
there are any inconsistencies between the policy advice given by the GNSO and 
what the ICANN Board agrees to with the GAC, how will those matters be handled?"

If there is consensus to consider other topics, I will forward them to the 
Board an request that they may be treated as AOB towards the end of our session 
with them.
