One of the recommendations of the ICANN Board Governance Committee was to develop and implement a targeted outreach program to explore the formation of new constituency groups. As a follow up to Board approval of many BGC Report recommendations, the GNSO Council formed two steering committees, one of which – the Operations Steering Committee (OSC) – provided a report to the GNSO Council "Recommendations to Develop a Global Outreach Program to Broaden Participation in the GNSO." In 2011 the Council established an Outreach Task Force Charter Drafting Team to develop a charter and timeline to implement a GNSO outreach program. Following the GNSO Council meetings in San José, Costa Rica in March 2012 the GNSO Council formed a Discussion Group to consider various approaches to outreach.
