Outreach Strategy

Outreach Plan
and Details:


The Internet Service Providers & Connectivity Constituency (BC) FY16 Outreach Strategy is premised on fulfilling the ISPCP mission as contained in its Charter. 


The ISPCP Outreach objectives are:
1. To create awareness about the ISPCP, how it works and ICANN, particularly in low membership regions and industry sectors.
2. To realise this mission by growing the ISPCP membership base thereby enriching its long term policy development efforts and at the same time addressing volunteer burn-out phenomenon
3. To advance the bottom-up multi-stakeholder model of ICANN by creating meaningful opportunities for input from a broad cross section of businesses.

Implementation Strategy

Implementing its Outreach Strategy is based on ICANN FY16-27 support based on its established Outreach funding criteria.

The ISPCP seeks to:

  • Present information about ICANN at the ISP and NOG related events around the globe, particularly in low membership regions.
  • Hold special events to inform the business community about ICANN and the ISPCP.
  • Provide travel support for potential members to attend relevant activities
  • Provide financial support for ISPCP members to attend outreach and recruitment events on behalf of the ISPCP that they would not otherwise attend
  • Provide mentorship and informal support to ISP representatives attending ICANN or ISPCP meetings for the first time.

The Internet Service Providers and Connectivity Providers operate Internet backbone networks and/or provide access to Internet and related services to End Users.  They are key players of the Internet. and have an essential role in its stability and development. As a consequence, they contribute toward fulfilling the aims and goals of ICANN.  Since the creation of ICANN, those players formed a constituency to bring their specific and unique expertise to ICANN.

The ISPs and Connectivity Providers Constituency forms an integral part of the generic Name Supporting Organization (GNSO) assigned, according to ICANN Bylaws, Article XX, Section 5, as a representative member of the Commercial Stakeholders Group (CSG) in the Non-Contracted Parties House. The role of the ISPCP Constituency goes beyond this GNSO participation: it takes an active part in many Supporting Organizations, Advisory Committees, and Working Groups within ICANN’s diverse structure.

Among the numerous topics where they expressed the views of their community, one could mention:

  • Whois policies,
  • New gTLDs and their impact on the network,
  • IP addressing,
  • Institutional evolution of ICANN, notably the Affirmation of Commitments,

To summarize, the Constituency ensures that the views of Internet Service Providers and Connectivity Providers contribute toward fulfilling the aims and goals of ICANN.  The ISPCP actively participates in the work of ICANN to ensure that policy development guarantees and enhances the operational stability of the Internet and the needs and interests of ISP and connectivity providers.   The Constituency also cares about safeguarding the interests and concerns of the ISP and connectivity industry. The Constituency fulfills its roles and responsibilities while adhering to the relevant ICANN bylaws and Operating Procedures.
