[ga] Revised Agenda proposal

Dear General Assembly Members,

I would like to propose an slightly revised outline agenda for the Santiago DNSO General Assembly meeting. (My thanks to Jean-Michel for kicking this discussion off).

Please note that I believe that at least a full day is requried for the DNSO GA (and therefore the DNSO Constituency meetings should be held the previous day (the Monday)), as
(in my opinion) anything less than a day makes a mockery of the attempt at a General Assembly.

What I propose below is an outline - if there is any positive feedback to this I will provide a more detailed agenda for discussion.

I look forward to your comments.


P.S. Please feel free to broadcast this e-mail message widely as the DNSO GA list has barely two hundred members and is therefore quite unrepresentative at this time.
Agenda for DNSO General Assembly

09:00 Appointment of Chairman
(Objective – a neutral chairman for the day)

09:15 Report from the ICANN Board

> This is my proposal for the agenda of the DNSO GA in Santiago :

> B) Public comments on constituencies
> 2- Chairman's Working Groups updates
> A) DG F

> D) WG C
> E) WG D
> F) WG E
> G) Public comments on working groups
> 3- Elections of the NC
> When could be done? and how?
> On that point I think that if the GA decide if we can go for the elections
> at least for the recognized constituencies : ccTLD, Commercial and
> Business entities, Registrars, Intellectual Property, ISP, they can process
> during the Santiago and thus start to have a partial elected NC, which I
> think it's better than a provisional NC.
> The gTLD and the non Commercial must try to make their best effort to come
> up with a solution to be recognized during this meeting. The gTLD must
> accept the fact to have only one representative and the non Comm must find a
> way to exist.
> 4- Non commercial constituencie update
> 5- Plan for the next months and future
> According to John C. Lewis inputs:
