Re: [council] Re: 2016 Proposed Council dates for review and comment

Dear colleagues,

I would like to propose rotating the times around ICANN global HQs, for example:

1200 Los Angeles = 2000 UTC

1200 Istanbul = 1000 UTC

1200 Singapore = 0400 UTC

Best wishes,

Dear All,

Thank you very much Wolf-Ulrich for spotting this, it is indeed Thursday 17 
December 2016. My apologies for the mistake and this will be corrected when the 
dates are approved by the Council.

With regard to the rotation of meeting times, please see the google spreadsheet 
doc which is based on the time zones of the new Council


A suggested new rotation could be 14, 17, 22 UTC.

Your comments and input would be most welcome to modify the rotation times.

Thank you

Kind regards,

In light of the GNSO review recommendations I endorse Heather’s suggestion.

My calendar indicates 16 December as a Friday???

Dear Glen, colleagues,

May I suggest that we consider modifying the times (not the dates) within our 
rotation, as 11, 15 and 18 UTC range from 10pm - 5am in Asia Pacific. A more 
equitable rotation whereby each time zone cluster (North/South America, 
Europe/Middle East, Asia Pacific) has at least one meeting during working hours 
would be beneficial and would take on board the feedback received in the recent 
GNSO Review as to facilitating participation from regions outside of Europe and 
North America.

Many thanks and best wishes,
