Re: [council] ICANN Academy message
Stephane, I think the first message could come across as arrogant to
folks who did not follow today's discussion, particularly given recent
sensitivities regarding CWGs. May I suggest something along the lines of
the sub-message to proposed message 1 being the main message, and the
main message becoming the sub, phrased as "The GNSO Council looks
forward to participating in the community discussion concerning the
establishment of the ICANN Academy"?

[council] ICANN Academy message
As mentioned during our meeting today, I would like to write down a few
baseline points to take to the Icann academy WG as being Council
positions or items on which the Council is comfortable it wants answers
To get this started, here are my suggestion. Please comment, add or
edit as required.
Message 1 to the WG: There should be no discussions on a possible
curriculum until there has first been discussion (and consensus among
the different community reps in the WG) on whether the academy itself
should be created.
GNSO sub-message to message 1: The GNSO Council agrees the concept of
an academy to help newcomers get to grips with the ICANN world is a good
idea. But there needs to be clear guidelines on finance, budget and
Message 2 to the WG: Once it has been determined that the concept of an
academy is one that should be pushed forward, is willing to provide
background material and support in helping academy attendees understand
the intricacies of the GNSO and welcomes any suggestions from the WG on
what type of material is needed.
Please let me have other suggestions. Thanks.
