Public Comment

Public Comment is a vital part of our multistakeholder model. It provides a mechanism for stakeholders to have their opinions and recommendations formally and publicly documented. It is an opportunity for the ICANN community to effect change and improve policies and operations.

ICANN Travel Support Policy

Open: 3 March 08
Closed: 17 April 08
Extended to
24 April 08

Explanation: Explanation: ICANN is looking to create a documented, consistent policy that makes it clear when, for whom, and how ICANN will provide travel support for the wide range of volunteers who make ICANN’s community-based work possible. As ICANN becomes a more mature institution, it is important that we determine the proper approach to participation and travel support, and determine what is sustainable.

During a presentation on this topic at the ICANN meeting in Delhi, a commitment was made to host an online forum to collect further input.
