Empowered Community’s Cross Community Forum on Proposed Fundamental Bylaws Amendments

Feedback form is now closed.
The ICANN Board Governance Committee (BGC) has proposed moving its responsibilities for ICANN's Reconsideration Request process to a new Board committee that can also be dedicated to the oversight of ICANN's other accountability mechanisms as deemed appropriate by the Board. The Reconsideration Request process is a key ICANN accountability mechanism, and the BGC's oversight of it is part of ICANN's Fundamental Bylaws which can only be amended if the ICANN Board and ICANN's Empowered Community (EC) approve.
The proposed Fundamental Bylaw change was posted for public comment, following which the Board will review and act on the proposal. If the Board approves the change, the next step (as mandated by the Bylaws) will be for the EC to consider whether it supports the change. The Bylaws specify the process by which the EC may approve Fundamental Bylaw changes. This includes the convening of a Community Forum by ICANN if so directed by the EC Administration.
This will be the first time that the EC will be coming together to exercise one of the EC's new powers under the revised ICANN Bylaws. It will also be the first time that the EC Administration - comprising a representative from each of the EC's five Decisional Participants - will be conducting a Community Forum in accordance with the new procedures spelled out in the Bylaws.
