Ahead of each Board workshop, the ICANN Organization Executive Team compiles a brief report for the Board that summarizes each department’s highlights, milestones and provides an overview of recent activity. In our continued commitment to increased transparency, we will begin making these reports public. You can expect to see updates in the following areas of the organization’s activities:  

  • Communications
  • Contractual Compliance & Safeguards
  • Development and Public Responsibility Department
  • Finance
  • Global Domains Division
  • Global Stakeholder Engagement
  • Government and IGO Engagement
  • Human Resources
  • Information Technology
  • Legal
  • Multistakeholder Strategy and Strategic Initiatives
  • Office of the Chief Technology Officer
  • Operations
  • Policy Development Support

The Board Reports will be posted here, in the President’s Corner, approximately five to six times a year, around each Board workshop, including those that occur during the ICANN Meetings.

Details on the Board meetings and activities can be found here.

The report we provided the Board for their Hyderabad workshop is here.

This is not intended to be a list of all of the activities of the organization, but an overview of many of the things that the organization is working on. Do not hesitate to reach out to me and my team with any questions you may have.
