[council] ccTLD Members CANNOT attend ICANN meetings in USA
Dear NC Colleagues,
I am bringing to your attention the difficulties some of ccTLD Members
have to attend the ICANN meetings in Marina del Rey, USA.
The ICANN meetings in Marina del Rey, include a plenary session
dedicated to relationship between ICANN/IANA and ccTLD Administrators.
The achievement of stable agreements with the ccTLD organizations
is explicited in Amendment 2 to the Memorandum of Understanding
between ICANN and the United States Government, on the agenda now.
The ccTLD are world wide, covering all the countries and territories.
At this point I do not see how to proceed without making this difficulties
known to both ICANN and DNSO.
