Proposed Agenda for GNSO Working Session in Paris 22 June 2008
Remote participation possible

Joint meeting with ALAC (8:15 -10:00)

(Agenda is subject to review by both groups)

1. Public Comment Period Length: Given the ALAC and hierarchical At-Large structure, and the typical lack of easy to understand and multi-lingual documentation, ALAC is faced with a very difficult problem in responding to the typical 30 comment periods. How do other constituencies address this and to what extent should ICANN adjust processes.

2. Improving communications:
Improving communications between At-large groups and GNSO constituency members at the local and regional level.

3. GNSO Improvements
Alternative proposal on GNSO structure: brief discussion of how the ALAC came to support the recent alternative proposal on GNSO structure, specifically what ALAC would like to see coming out of any changes, and how Councillors perceive these issues.
