What is it | Briefing and feedback on the Joint Project Agreement (JPA) mid-term review process and outcome as well as an update of the work of the President's Strategy Committee in considering feedback from the community about transition and the multi-stakeholder model.

Why it's Important | Signed in 2006, the JPA is an agreement between the U.S. Department of Commerce and ICANN. ICANN believes that it is meeting it's responsibilities under the agreement and that the JPA should be concluded nine years after the President of the United States instruction that the Domain Name System be transitioned to the private sector model of stakeholder consultation that ICANN represents. This is an opportunity for the community to provide input to the President's Strategy Committee which is conducting a consultation on the ICANN model in the lead up to the conclusion of the JPA in September 2009.

Who Should Attend | All those interested in a Domain Name System that is coordinated; not controlled.
