To the ICANN community:
Some of you have enquired whether the ICANN Marina del Rey meeting will go forward as scheduled in November in the light of last week's tragic events in New York and Washington.
As of now the meeting will be held as scheduled in Marina del Rey. This might well change if international events nearer the time unfold in such a way as to make it extremely difficult or impossible to attend. Regardless, we also want to be sensitive to the wishes of the ICANN community, particularly those who would have to travel far to reach Los Angeles.
Although last week's events are still devastatingly fresh in all our minds, we would appreciate it if you would share your current thinking as to whether your plans to travel to Marina del Rey are likely to change – or any other advice you may have regarding the November meeting. Again, we would particularly appreciate hearing from those of you who would have to travel from afar.
For planning purposes, we will make a final decision by Wednesday, September 26, so your early response would be greatly appreciated.
