A guide to ICANN’s intersessional work
Yesterday, we published a “San Juan to Los Angeles” newsletter to all those subscribed to ICANN meetings updates (you can subscribe here), covering ICANN “intersessional” work i.e. the flow of work between main ICANN meetings – in this case between San Juan in June, and Los Angeles, running from 29 October to 2 November.
The intent of this publication is to keep people up-to-date on what is going on within ICANN and the ICANN community, split up according to topic and linking directly through to more extensive resources such as reports, webpages or audio files. It is hoped that this newsletter will, in part, deal with the concerns that many in the community have already raised in our online information survey, where the top two answers to the question “What would you like to see ICANN provide more information on?” were “Policy decisions” – chosen by 83 percent of you – and “ICANN processes”, chosen by 77 percent.
That survey is still open and we urge everyone to take part. It takes less than five minutes to complete. We would also like to encourage people to provide feedback on this newsletter by posting a comment below. Is it too long? Does it go into too much or too little depth? Is splitting it up by topic the right approach? Should there be a number of different newsletters or just one?
It takes a considerable amount of time to compile the information provided but ICANN is more than happy to invest that time if it is felt to be worthwhile by the community. Equally, if you have other suggestions for how to explain ICANN’s policy decisions and processes in a clearer fashion, please note them below.
