Community Input and Advice Process

Forum Announcement: Comment Period Opens on Date: 24 September 2012
  • Policy Processes
  • Transparency/Accountability
  • Reviews/Improvements
Purpose (Brief): This discussion document is posted at the request of the Board Governance Committee to solicit views from the ICANN community on ways to enhance the process by which the Board seeks advice from the ICANN community beyond the traditional public comment process. This issue stems from the work undertaken by Staff in fulfillment of recommendation No. 6 from the Accountability and Transparency Review Team, and highlights an area where improvements can lead to predictability and consistency for future Board actions. A session is scheduled in Toronto to explore this important issue with the broader ICANN community.
