    Philip Sheppard will be chairing the NC teleconference.

    Scheduled time for meeting - 120 mins.

  2. Agenda and related documents

    This is the second teleconference after Accra dedicated to ICANN Reform

    Proposed NC Agenda April 4

    I propose the following order of topics for our next calls:

    - Short term
    - Long term

    2.Advisory Bodies

    3.Management of advisory bodies

    4.Stakeholder participation

    5.Board composition


    I propose a first pass where we seek areas of common agreement and then we revisit to discuss areas where constituencies have differing views. Our timeline is short. The Evolution committee has said it wants input by April 29 to be useful. This differs from the timeline indicated by Stuart Lynn in Ghana (May 15.) upon which the current schedule of NC calls was based. For now I do not propose any additional calls but we can re-evaluate that as we proceed.
