Public Comment: Meetings for the Next Decade Consultation Process Opens

21 May 2010

As ICANN enters its second decade, the time is right to look at the meetings ICANN holds each year from a holistic and truly bottom-up perspective, to ensure that ICANN meetings optimally serve the community in the most cost-effective and stakeholder-focussed ways possible. For that reason, ICANN is pleased to announce the beginning of Stage One of the “Meetings for the Next Decade” consultation process.

This consultation consists of a detailed survey, in six languages, available at the link below. Responses may be entered until 23:59 UTC on 19 July 2010. Respondents may also send a comment in to a traditional email-based comment forum where they believe that the survey misses a point that’s important, or where they wish to convey the views of a group or organisation with respect to the questions the survey addresses. The survey does allow for a response to be made on behalf of an organisation, as well as by community members speaking in their individual capacity.

The consultation is a part of the work programme of the ICANN Board’s Public Participation Committee and at the staff level is a joint effort of the ICANN Meetings department and the Senior Director for Participation and Engagement.

For more information about the consultation and consultation process, please refer to the Meetings for the Next Decade microsite, at http://www.icann.org/en/meetings2010/.
