Subject: [council] Proposed Agenda Item - Elimination of Friday Public Board 

Given the announcement yesterday of the elimination of the public Board 
meetings at ICANN, I would like to put this on the Council agenda as a 
discussion item.  I would like it if someone from ICANN that is familiar with 
the rationale behind this decision could give us an explanation of how and why 
that decision was made.  
Also, if the ICANN Board can unilaterally declare that all of its meetings will 
be private, does this set a precedent for its Supporting Organizations to do 
the same thing?  I have not reviewed the bylaws with respect to the Council in 
a little bit, but does the Council have the discretion to declare that it will 
no longer hold a public GNSO Council meeting at ICANN?

I think there has been enough disapproval expressed within the community in the 
last day or so that at least merits a discussion of this decision at the 
Council level.
