What It's About: An update on the status/timetable of the upcoming GNSO Review effort and a discussion about appropriate Council and community next steps.

Background: The ICANN ByLaws (Article 4 Section 4) provide that “the Board shall cause a periodic review of the performance and operation of each Supporting Organization and each Supporting Organization Council…” The Bylaws mandate that periodic reviews “shall be conducted no less frequently than every five years, based on feasibility as determined by the Board.”

The Structural Improvements Committee (SIC) recently recommended to the Board that ICANN would benefit from delaying the initiation of the latest GNSO review in order to factor-in valuable inputs from the ICANN's Strategic Planning Process and the ongoing work of the second Accountability and Transparency Review Team convened under the Affirmation of Commitments (ATRT 2). A public comment forum was conducted and yielded eight responses.  Seven responders indicated that the GNSO review should not be postponed.

At its 28 September 2013 meeting, the Board directed the SIC to schedule the GNSO Review to commence in 2014, and that preparations for the review should commence as soon as feasible.

Who Should Attend: GNSO Councilors and GNSO community members.
