An accountability mechanism under the ICANN Bylaws through which ICANN's Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees are organized under California law. This mechanism provides the Empowered Community with nine powers it can use to raise concerns regarding an action or inaction taken by the ICANN Board or the ICANN organization.
The community powers and rules that govern the Empowered Community are defined in the ICANN Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. The Empowered Community is composed of five Decisional Participants: ICANN’s three Supporting Organizations, the At-Large Advisory Committee, and the Governmental Advisory Committee.
