ICANN is moving forward with the establishment of a WS2 Community Coordination Group. This community group will serve as an information sharing and coordinating forum for the community’s implementation of certain specific recommendations from the Cross Community Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability (CCWG-Accountability) Work Stream 2 (WS2).

Each Supporting Organization, Advisory Committee, Regional At-Large Organization, and GNSO Stakeholder Group is requested to confirm their appointment of a representative (and alternate, if appropriate).


In relation to a timeline, ICANN org has suggested that each SO/AC/RALO/SG complete the appointment of its primary and secondary representatives by late January or early February 2022, with the aim of enabling the WS2 Community Coordination Group to hold an initial call before ICANN73.

 The initial call will allow the group to familiarize itself with its scope of work, discuss a potential timeline and a cadence for its calls. Subsequent calls would then involve discussion as to the order in which the community would approach implementing the relevant recommendations. These recommendations are Recommendation 1.1 (on proposed elements of diversity), Recommendation 1.7 (on a process for handling complaints about diversity), and Recommendation 2.3 (on a standalone framework for exercising Empowered Community powers). We understand that there may be other recommendations that can benefit from information sharing purposes as well, but we wanted to flag these specific recommendations to you as those that require cross-community coordination.
