Jeff, It is too much to
ask for an additional trip of any length this year, if at all. I am
copying the Council list so everyone is informed that this request is coming
from one of the PPSC work teams.
The new Council ought to
prioritize this work along with all of its other work, as its first effort at
and after Seoul. I certainly do not think it is as big a priority as
several other ongoing efforts on Council and in WGs.

Subject: [gnso-ppsc-pdp] Possible Face to Face Meeting
As most of you are aware, the PDP-WT has made slow progress on the new Policy
Development Process partly due to limited attendance and participation over the
last few months. With the new Council taking its seat in Seoul, we have been
discussing ways to speed up the process and come to a timely agreement on the
new Policy Development Process. As a result, we would like to propose to
organise a 1.5 – 2 day face to face meeting of the PDP-WT. The objective
of this meeting would be to wrap up the discussions on the different stages and
reach agreement on the overall recommendations and proposed changes to the
ICANN by-laws in order to implement the new PDP.
To facilitate such a meeting, ICANN has informed me that it would take care of
arranging the logistics and provide funding to a limited number of participants
(e.g. 1 participant from each constituency, Advisory Committee, etc.). Taking
into account the geographic spread of the participants of the WT, the proposal
would be to organize the meeting on the US East Coast, e.g. Washington DC. Of
course, remote participation facilities would be made available for those not
able to travel to the meeting. Ideally such a meeting would be held before the
end of the year or in early January at the latest.
The WT might want to discuss this proposal in further detail at its meeting
coming Thursday and on the e-mail list prior to Seoul. If there is support for
the organisation of such a face to face meeting, the next step would be to
confirm a date and location as soon as possible so that the necessary
arrangements can be made in a timely fashion.
Please let me know your thoughts.
