Extension of Public Comment Period on GNSO Stakeholder Group Charters to 23 
July 2009

Explanation: As part of the comprehensive GNSO Improvements effort, last year 
the ICANN Board approved the formation of four new GNSO Stakeholder Groups 
(SGs). After considering proposed SG Charters that were submitted by the 
community and posted for public comment, the ICANN Board passed a Resolution in 
May directing its Structural Improvements Committee (SIC) and ICANN Staff to 
revise the SG Charters to make them consistent with the Board's GNSO 
Improvements Report (and related Resolutions). Stakeholder Groups are integral 
elements of a new, restructured GNSO, and are intended to be lightweight 
"caucuses" bringing together like-minded international groups (Constituencies) 
to elect the best representatives to fill the SG's allotted Council seats. 
Stakeholder Groups ensure that the ratio of Council seats among SGs remains the 
same while encouraging the formation of new Constituencies and the continued 
growth and diversification of the GNSO community. The overall GNSO Improvements 
effort and the role SGs will play in that arena is more fully described in the 
Stakeholder Group section of the GNSO Improvements Information Web Page. 

The SIC provided the community with the revised charters listed below and 
discussed these documents during ICANN's recent Sydney meeting. The revised 
charters are posted here to further encourage public comment through 21 July
