As we suspected, Denise did not mean to say 'At-Large' community.

Chuck -

     Thanks for your email, and for bringing this error to my attention.
     I inadvertently wrote " ...importance of the Geographic Regions structure 
to the At-Large community in general ..." when I intended to write " 
...importance of the Geographic Regions structure to the GNSO community in 
general ..."   (I had just sent a similar note to the ALAC and didn't review my 
message carefully before sending).  I apologize for any confusion this has 
caused.

     Regards
     Denise

Denise,

In this request you say, "We hope that the GNSO will be able to provide input 
on the relative importance of the Geographic Regions structure to the At-Large 
community in general . . ."  I am curious why you say the 'At-Large community' 
with At-Large in caps.  That causes me to conclude that you mean the At-Large 
organization as defined in ICANN structure.  I am guessing that you really mean 
the at-large community (no caps), meaning the overall ICANN community, of which 
the At-Large is one subset.  Am I correct?

Chuck

        Dear Avri and Chuck:

        The ICANN Board invited the ICANN community (including the ALAC, ASO, 
ccNSO, GAC and GNSO) to provide input on the proposal by the ccNSO to appoint a 
community-wide working group to review the structure of ICANN's present 
Geographic Regions and related issues.

        The Board recognized that any potential change to ICANN Geographic 
Regions would have "wide-spread effect" in ICANN and that it should seek the 
views of the other Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees before 
taking further action. The ICANN Board directed Staff to summarize and analyze 
that community input and to subsequently prepare a report for consideration to 
the Board.

        The GNSO is kindly requested to provide input, if any, on the suggested 
formation of a community wide working group, and its mandate.

        Staff is targeting a Board report, summarizing all responses received, 
by early September. We hope that the GNSO will be able to provide input on the 
relative importance of the Geographic Regions structure to the At-Large 
community in general and to the value of a community-wide working group 
specifically, by that time. We expect that the proposed working group, if 
ultimately formed, will reach out to the broader community to seek further 
input and perspectives.

        Thank you very much for your attention to this matter.  For your 
convenience links to relevant background documents are included below. Please 
contact Rob Hoggarth, Senior Policy Director (policy-staff@xxxxxxxxx), who is 
staffing this issue, if you have any questions. We look forward to following-up 
with the GNSO.

        Regards,

        Denise Michel
        Vice President Policy
