>> I wanted to call members attention to the Thursday open session on Internet 
>> Governance  11:15 a.m. -12:30 p.m. The BC has several members who are 
>> actively engaged. 
>> Thursday's session has two components --Segment One - NMI focused, update 
>> and feedback. 
>> Segment Two which will address the broader WSIS +10, IGF Renewal and the 
>> UNESCO Conference.  This session is organized by the CCWG-IG, rather than 
>> ICANN staff. We had asked for more time, as the CCWG had wanted this to be 
>> more of a town hall, but all in all,this is a major step in the right 
>> direction as the CCWG-IG proposed this change in planning and organizing 
>> during ICANN51. It took a little back and forth but we are clearly moving 
>> toward a recognition by participants and ICANN staff that the community 
>> expects a more collaborative approach on identifying and designing ICANN's 
>> activities in IG. ICANN staff was asked at ICANN51 to update the CCWG-IG in 
>> writing.  Attached is the update.  The CCWG-IG welcomed the report, had some 
>> comments, and invited quarterly updates.  Some discussion happened about the 
>> relationship and interaction between the community and the Staff. That topic 
>> might also have been discussed in the Thursday open session, but time really 
>> did not permit.

>> We will undertake a pilot up to BA in asking ICANN staff to be more 
>> proactive in sharing information before implementation on activities in IG. 

>> Composition of the CCWG-IG - the membership of the CCWG -IG initially was 
>> very open, but in the final charter, limits on numbers of participants 
>> somehow were added. This CCWG has struggled with time availability of many 
>> of the participants.   I raised a concern that the CCWG-Accountability had a 
>> good model, which allows participants to self nominate, and also allows 
>> observers.  The CCWG -IG is going to update our Charter to model after the 
>> CCWG-IG to enable more flexible and open participation.
