Dear all,
Action points from today's call:

1.       FYI, Avri Doria and Evan Leibovitch were unanimously elected co-chairs 
for the WG - congratulations! And thanks to Rafik for chairing the launch phase!

2.       All to review and agree revised version of WG charter (see draft text 
below, also on the wiki https://st.icann.org/so-ac-new-gtld-wg/index.cgi ) - in 
time for handling at GNSO Council and ALAC upcoming meetings at 20 and 25 May, 

3.       Work will proceed in two work teams, for reviewing application fee 
structure and for "Who and What" (identifying applicants in need of support). 
Both work teams open for all, using the JAS WG mailing list and the wiki (team 
headings and some documents/links have been put in the wiki 

4.       Co-chairs and staff will further consider call schedule and call 
length, proposed agenda for upcoming calls and planning of activities at the 
ICANN Brussels meeting.

I think that's it - did I forget anything?

All the best

Revised draft charter as per 5 May

Preamble: The Joint SO/AC Working Group on New gTLD Applicant Support shall 
evaluate and propose policy recommendations regarding specific support to new 
gTLD applicants in justified cases. The working group expects to identify 
suitable criteria for provision of such support, to identify suitable support 
forms and to identify potential providers of such support. However, there is no 
presumption that the outcome will imply any particular governing structure. 
Accordingly, if the recommendations indicate that the preferred solutions are 
of a voluntary nature, the criteria and other provisions arrived at in line 
with the objectives below will solely serve as advice to the parties concerned. 
The objectives are not listed in any priority order. An overall consideration 
is that the outcomes of the WG should not lead to delays of the New gTLD 

Objective 1: To identify suitable criteria that new gTLD applicants must 
fulfill to qualify for dedicated support. The criteria may be different for 
different types of support identified in line with Objective 2 and 3 below.

Objective 2: To identify how the application fee can be reduced to accommodate 
applicants that fulfill appropriate criteria to qualify for this benefit.

Objective 3: To identify what kinds of support (e.g. technical assistance, 
organizational assistance, financial assistance, fee reduction) and support 
timelines (e.g. support for the application period only, continuous support) 
are appropriate for new gTLD applicants fulfilling identified criteria.

Objective 4: To identify potential providers of the identified kinds of support 
as well as appropriate mechanisms to enable support provisioning.

Objective 5: To identify conditions and mechanisms required to minimize the 
risk of inappropriate access to support.
