What it is | The gTLD Registries Constituency is a constituency within the Generic Name Supporting Organisation (GNSO) and its primary role is to represent the interests of gTLD Registries that are currently under contract with ICANN to provide gTLD Registry Services.

Why it's Important | The in-person meetings held in conjunction with the ICANN meetings provide an opportunity for productive and constructive discussions on issues that involve ICANN consensus policies that relate to interoperability, technical reliability and/or stable operation of the Internet or domain name system.

Who should attend? | Anyone with a vested interest in these issues is encouraged to attend the open session of the gTLD Registries Constituency meeting while in Paris.
