Steve DelBianco: (14:06) 5.Notes, minutes, or records of allopen meetings should be made publicly available.
Steve DelBianco: (14:07) "notes, minutes, records of all closed meetings, if any should be made available for the members and should not be made publicly available .
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:09) Good point Bernie we may need to acknowledge that in some way
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:09) Steve, membershio covers Mrmbers, participanrts and observers
avri doria: (14:10) was the 'where applicable' the good faith solution, i do not remeber for sure.
avri doria: (14:10) i als think that there should be a public note on the closed meeting indicating the reason for it being closed.
Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (14:10) @Avri re Good Faith - No - since our recommendations are not that long Lorie agreed to tweak the document
Farzaneh Badii: (14:11) Avri we have that in the recommendations
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:11) Available the final text for that issue is not quite settled
Farzaneh Badii: (14:11) let me look it up
avri doria: (14:11) ok, i forgot - does it apply to the public nature as in minutes.
avri doria: (14:11) will go back anf look
avri doria: (14:12) i like the dea of note &c being published for member.
Steve DelBianco: (14:12) "notes, minutes, records of all closed meetings, if any should be made available for the members and should not be made publicly available .
Farzaneh Badii: (14:14) yeah with NCUC too. sometimes even transcripts of closed meetings are published after the meeting
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:15) ALAC has a way of dealing with that as well Steve/Greg
avri doria: (14:15) FB, the text is not clear on there being a published record of the reason for closing a meeting. I.e. archiving that as well as the minute &c.
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:15) and Alan is in Queensland
Farzaneh Badii: (14:15) can you suggest a text Avri or shall I work on it?
Alan Greenberg: (14:15) I am in Queensland??? I wish!
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:16) how does auto correct make Queensland out of que ???
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:16) After if any say
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:17) Hoqwerver, the mints would be always made available publicly.
Steve DelBianco: (14:17) Alan -- you are saying "need not" as opposed to "should not"
avri doria: (14:17) somthing like/ a record should be archived of all close meeting and the reason they were closed. If only a section of a meeting is closed, that shuld be documented in the ntes &.
Farzaneh Badii: (14:18) ASOs made the point that they are different and have different governance multiple times
Farzaneh Badii: (14:18) we even have that in the report somewhere I think
avri doria: (14:18) i just did a quick search and did not find it. but can ceck furth. if it is there, then "nevermind"
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:19) so for the second part we say, whenever, foer closec meeting ,notes and rescords are only made available for membership however, the minutes of closed meetingshould be made available to public
Steve DelBianco: (14:21) notes, minutes, records of all closed meetings, if any, should be made available for the members and need not be made publicly available .
Alan Greenberg: (14:26) No. They *MAY* be made available.
Steve DelBianco: (14:26) notes, minutes, records of all open membership meetings should be made publicly available.”
Steve DelBianco: (14:26) notes, minutes, records of all closed meetings, if any, should be made available for the members and need not be made publicly available .
avri doria: (14:28) i like the idea of using a term such as records and defining it leave it as a inter alia definition
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:29) I agree Alan and Avri
Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (14:32) Time check 28 minutes left
Farzaneh Badii: (14:34) so here is what we need to do: clarify the term "records" and a clarification on ASOs and their independent governance system (which was mentioned in our earlier reports and I will find the language and make a suggestion)
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:39) Why we need to go to public comments as the changes are of calarification nature
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:43) We should aim to finish every thing by October unless CCWG gives us new assignments
Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (14:44) Time Check 15 minutes left in call
Alan Greenberg: (14:44) He is "away"
Steve DelBianco: (14:45) Accountability Good Practice #5. SO/AC/Groups should publish an annual report on what they have done during the prior year to improve accountability, transparency, and participation, describing where they might have fallen short, and any plans for future improvements.

Alan Greenberg: (14:49) If only.
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:49) lot
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:49) Why we need the external entity to prepare a report for the entire community?
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:49) Are we creating job for them
Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (14:49) hand
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:49) We need to agree whether we really need an external entity to do so
Kavouss Arasteh: (14:52) Frzi, I do not agree with you
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:52) it would get lots of push back
Cheryl Langdon-Orr (CLO): (14:53) not your average bear Bernie
