Public meeting on RegisterFly

24 March 2007
By Kieren McCarthy

ICANN will be holding a public meeting specifically on RegisterFly as part of its opening open forum in Lisbon on Monday 26 March.

President and CEO Paul Twomey will give his president’s report at 10.30am GMT/UTC in which he will briefly cover what should be discussed in the session. Then, at 12pm there will be a rundown on what happened and what the current situation is given by senior vice president of services, Kurt Pritz, followed by a panel discussion and open floor for questions. The entire event will be webcast and audiocast, and input is welcomed from the wider community.

The panel will include representatives from:

  • ICANN’s At Large Advisory Committee
  • gTLD registrars
  • ICANN’s Security and Stability Advisory Committee
  • Other consitituency groups

A chatroom for those both in the meeting and those online is available (registration required). This is the chatroom for the actual meeting room, not solely for the RegisterFly discussion so we would ask those interested in the RegisterFly issue to wait until the session starts to begin posting relating comments. ICANN will be presenting a summary of the public comments made over the issue to the meeting, covering posts made to the ICANN blog, emails sent to ICANN staff and other relevant postings made online.

ICANN welcomes comment and questions as the meeting is in progress. There are several methods of providing this input – a chatroom; a forum specifically for this topic; and comments made to the public participation website.

This and other information can be found on the specific webpage covering the meeting, located on public participation website at http://public.icann.org/issues/registerfly-discussion.
