While we would encourage everyone to attend the next official ICANN meeting in Carthage, Tunisia on October 27-31, 2003, we have heard from many registrars that they are unlikely to attend.  
In order to support registrar participation and foster dynamic discussion of issues, the Constituency 
has voted to hold an interim informal meeting on Friday, September 12th.  No decisions would be made at 
this interim meeting, so anyone unable to make it should not feel disadvantaged. Moreover, we will 
endeavor to set up telecommunication links.  
Prior to the Constituency meeting - on September 11th, registrars participating in the ICANN advisory group on 
transfers and the GNSO Council Whois group will try to schedule meetings on those issues.  These are 
not constituency meetings, but the constituency will be updated on those issues on the 12th.  
Additionally, some of the registries may offer to hold marketing presentations for registrars on the 
11th.  We would encourage people to arrive on the 11th, so we will plan a social function as well.
The venue will be the Marriott in Marina del Rey.  We are securing special rates of $144/night and will 
provide contact details shortly.  Please let us know if you are attending by emailing the ExCom (cc'd 

The meeting would be conducted in interactive workshop-style sessions where appropriate, with guest 
expert speakers invited for some of the topics. We will coordinate with the registry constituency, and 
hold a joint meeting for half of the day, and a separate constituency meeting for the other half.  

The initial proposed agenda is below. Please send us any additional agenda item requests by August 
15th.  Anyone proposing to speak should provide a presentation with a summary of no longer than 1 page 
by September 8.
