Joint meeting: ccNSO & ICANN Board

Questions by the Board:

  • What will be your main priorities in 2019?   
  • How should ICANN's multistakeholder model of governance and Policy Development Process evolve to balance the increasing need for inclusivity,
    accountability and transparency, with the imperative of getting our work done and our policies developed in a more effective and timely manner, and with the efficient utilization of ICANN’s resources?

Questions by the ccNSO:

  • What is the view of the Board on how ICANN's multistakeholder model of governance and Policy Development Process should evolve to balance the increasing need for inclusivity, accountability and transparency, with the imperative of getting our work done and our policies developed in a more effective and timely manner, and with the efficient utilization of ICANN’s resources?
  • What does the Board consider strategic priorities for the upcoming Strategic Plan? What will be ICANN’s strategic focus with respect to ccTLDs for the next 5 years?
  • Does the Board view activities in the area of internet governance as a part of ICANN’s mission and a strategic priority? What are the Board’s views on the roles of the different groups of ICANN in this area (Board’s, staff’s, communities, CCWG IG)? Has the Board considered possibilities to consolidate and coordinate all the different activities?
  • What the community could do differently to help ICANN to optimise the budget spending?
  • In San Juan the ccNSO asked how the Board intends to ensure that a Board decision affecting an individual SO/ACs is communicated to the respective SO/ACs, including the background, expected timelines and expected impact on priorities and how the Board follows up on their own decisions. The example at eh time was the set of Board decisions with respect to the Emojis, following SAC 095. At the time It was agreed that a page with the detailed information on Board’s decisions regarding the ccNSO would be created. Has anything been done in this area, and what is the respective URL?
  • What is a realistic planning for the next gTLD application round to start according to the Board?
