ICANN invites comments on ‘Meetings for the Next Decade’

Global internet coordinating organisation, the Internet for Corporation and Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has announced the review of its ‘Meetings for the Next Decade’.

ICANN in a press statement made available to ITRealms Online, last weekend, said the time is right to look at the meetings ICANN holds each year from a holistic and truly bottom-up perspective, so as to ensure that such meetings optimally serve the community in the most cost-effective and stakeholder-focused ways possible.

For this reason, ICANN said it’s announcing the beginning of stage one of the “Meetings for the Next Decade” consultation process.

The consultation, ITRealms Online learnt would comprise a detailed survey in six languages, which would be made available online, as the exercise would last till July 5, 2010.

ICANN also advised respondents to send comments via the traditional email-based comment forum where they believe that the survey misses a point that could be important, or where they wish to convey the views of a group or organisation with respect to the questions the survey addresses.

“The survey does allow for a response to be made on behalf of an organisation, as well as by community members speaking in their individual capacity,” part of the statement read.

ITRealms Online recalled that the consultation is part of the programme of the ICANN board’s Public Participation Committee (PPC) and at the staff level is a joint effort of the ICANN meetings department and the Senior Director for Participation and Engagement.
