Upon review and analysis there appears to be a lack of influence of working groups
pon ICANN. ICANN representatives seem to pick agendas independently rather than
based upon consensus and input from working groups.

Is there a mandate that current policies and processes be modified to obtain a
more representative determination.

It would be productive if ICANN were to make public statements supporting the
objective of a broader stakeholder representation. This would help integrity and

I propose the preceding be included within any report.

Personal agenda setting and demands are having an extremely dilatory effect upon
the efficacy of ICANN to be perceived and to act as a proper Governance body.

ICANN, through education and evaluation should move away from the perception of
many that it is not representative of Internet stakeholders. The methods of
arriving at decisions have resulted in poor process and poor perception.

Due to hightening tensions and the robust economies and growing attention to ICANN
it must move through this transition period quickly and establish prodicalls which
will effect substantive change.
