Public Comments: Draft Final Report of the Board Review Working Group

3 October 2009

ICANN appointed the Boston Consulting Group/Colin Carter & Associates to perform the external review of its Board of Directors; their review report was presented during a public workshop at the ICANN meeting in Cairo, and a public comment period followed.

The Board review WG, considering the Independent Reviewer's final report, Board input, and comments from stakeholders and the public, issued an Interim Report for consultation with the Community, which was presented at the ICANN meeting in Mexico City. During the following public comment period further inputs were received from interested parties.

A second interim report was then issued and presented at the ICANN meeting in Sydney. Comments received during its presentation and during the following public comments phase helped the Board review WG to conclude its analysis of the few issues that were still outstanding.

The WG releases now its draft final report [PDF, 132K], which will be presented at the Seoul meeting. Community is invited to participate to this final round of consultation before the finalization of the report for Board action.
