The Consolidated Policy Working Group (CPWG) was formed in December 2017, as a union of three At-Large Working Groups: At-Large Registration Issues Working GroupAt-Large New gTLDs Working Group and At-Large ICANN Evolution Working Group.

The WG is Co-chaired by Jonathan Zuck and Olivier Crépin-Leblond. New people are welcome to join any of the component groups and they will then become a member of the CPWG automatically. But they cannot join the CPWG itself directly. The focus of the Consolidated Policy Working Group (CPWG) is directed towards policy comments and advice within At-Large, best practices for identifying Internet end user issues in the policy development process at ICANN, and engaging the At-Large community further on policy comments and advice.


Staff Support Leads: Heidi Ullrich and Evin Erdoğdu
