RE: [registrars] Minutes of Registrar Executive Committee

Title: RE: [registrars] Minutes of Registrar Executive Committee
In addition, I question the safety of travel to some of the locations ICANN chooses to have meetings. So while we are a "large" registrar we will not likely send anyone to Rio right now.

I will have Bryan send an updated payment schedule to the list regarding registrars in good standing ASAP.
The current plan is to have a meeting in DC, Brazil and Montreal. I do not believe that the ICANN Tunisia meeting will be well attended, similar to the Ghana meeting. Originally the Registrar Executive Committee was planning a meeting in Florida for Feb but there were scheduling problems. After canceling this meeting, it was brought to my attention that the FTC was having a workshop on cross boarder fraud. One of the sessions is scheduled to deal directly with registrar and registry issues. Given that Whois, credit card fraud, and hijacked domain names are relevant topics for most registrars I thought it would be a good idea to kill two bird with one stone. Moreover, a number of small to mid-sized registrars do not have the budget to travel around the world Brazil and Tunisia.  Based on last years Dulles meeting which was the most widely attended meeting ever, I though it a good idea to choose DC since it provides cheap and accessible access to most registrars.

Mike - would you please send an update on dues payments so that registrars know whether they are in good standing.  Also, I don't understand the suggested meeting schedule.  Is the plan to meet in DC, not in Brazil, and again in Montreal?

Thanks, Elana
