Organization of the Forum:

The public forum has three main sections as follows:

  1. Board Reporting: ICANN Board provides a report at the end of the ICANN meeting week.
  2. Subject Specific Discussion: Time will be allotted for various topics (to be posted). This agenda is developed with input received from ICANN Community Leaders of Supporting Organizations, Advisory Councils and Stakeholder Groups/Constituencies and the community in general
  3. Any Other Business: This is in essence a more relaxed open mic session where any subject may be raised to the Board.
