On the call today, you asked for opinions and guidance of where Chris Mondni
should be going with the local Business Engagement events.


Most previous events have seen a very low turnout of local business leaders.

I appreciate it is difficult to organize remotely but we need attendance of
100+ to make this worthwhile to do outreach for ICANN, for the BC, and for


The only way is via local business organizations such as Chamber of Commerce
and get them on board and excited anout a meeting for their members  that
ICANN funds.   It is an opportunity for their members to learn about ICANN
and BC and meet us, the travelling business people in town.


I am member of a number of chambers, and I am thinking about it from the
other side.  If it was properly and well advance promoted within the Chamber
there would be a good turnout.   Perhaps that needs a Chamber committee
member well on board.     If not and the invite is just emails and phone
calls then the chamber might just send a few along as a courtesy.  I don?t
know the organizational route to date but the outcome in the past has been
the latter.


Again it may need a ICANN and/or BC member to make an advance visit to
personally meet and present to the chamber committee and get them so on


Too late for Singapore but in time for London and LA.
