This is an excerpt from the full announcement available here

Following the request of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) forICANN to "convene a multistakeholder process to develop a plan to transition the U.S. government stewardship role" with regard to the IANA Functions and related root zone management, a Cross Community Working Group (CWG) was tasked with developing a consolidated transition proposal for the elements of the IANA Functions relating to the Domain Name System (DNS). The CWG has now published its draft transition proposal for public comment. Comments can be submitted until 22 December at 23:59 UTC.

In order to brief the community on the contents on this draft transition proposal and encourage community feedback, the CWG will be organizing three identical webinars at different times to facilitate participation across time zones. The webinars will take place on:

  • 3 December from 7:00 – 8:30 UTC (time zone converter here)
  • 4 December from 12:30 – 14:00 UTC (time zone converter here)
  • 4 December from 16:00 – 17:30 UTC (time zone converter here)
