Thanks, Chuck.that could be an excellent approach. There are several BC members 
in the San Francisco area, for instance, I think that Fred Felman suggested 
they could host 17-20 folks in S.F. area. 
If we were to decide to do that, we should identify a few 'needed resources' 
for a really effective remote 'hub'.  The IGF does remote hubs, so there is a 
'body' of expertise we should consider, if the 
If it is to work well, people should stay at a single hotel/or one or two, so 
that they actually have their own 'mini meeting' and exchanges.We would ask 
ICANN for full remote participation support.It is best to do this in a 
dedicated room, that can stay assigned to the meeting for whatever period of 
time that the participants are committed to participate.Participating in a 
remote hub is different from participating alone, from your office or home 
laptop, since it generally involves having a community around you.  
We have a significant number of members on the West Coast, as on the East 
Coast, USA, and also, between the IPC and BC, a good number in Europe as well.
IF ICANN was to organize remote hubs, it could be that they would fund the 
hotel meeting room(w), and have staff on site to support and participate.  If 
the BCorganizes our own or partners with IPC/ISPCP, or others,, we would need 
to have a facility that can stay open during the relevant  hours for the ICANN 
meeting. During Kenya, the Registries and Regisrars decided to rent a hotel 
room in Reston Virginia, and have a large screen, etc. for 'attending' certain 
ICANN sessions>
I'd like to propose that we stay tuned for whether it is announced to be 
Singapore, for instance, and consider whether the BC members who do not 
travelwould want to do a remote hub, or whether ICANN itself might organize one 
or two remote hubs that people can use. but, this is a good suggestion to keep 
in mind, Chuck, and plan accordingly.

May I suggest we do a remote participation for the BC in San Francisco area?  
We can invite Silicon Valley firms, etc.  I'm just sick about how much a 
Singapore conference will cost members - especially after the numerous gTLD 
delays which have cost numerous people in the ICANN community significant time 
and resources.  Just a thought.

 Developments Cause Cancellation of ICANN Jordan Meeting

Dear BC Members:

ICANN announced that the June meeting will not take place in Jordan. A formal 
announcement of location will be made soon.  I am aware that at least two BC 
members have already purchased tickets to Jordan. That is regrettable, and I do 
hope that they are refundable tickets. 
Please stay tuned for the formal announcement of the new location of the June 
I realize that travel to Asia is challenging as well to many BC members, due to 
cost and time to travel.I am told that it is likely that the meeting will be in
