    Membership Issues NAIS Posts Executive Summary of Interim Report on At Large Participation
    posted by michael on Wednesday May 30 2001, @03:09AM

    rob writes "NAIS (the NGO and Academic ICANN Study) today posted the Executive Summary of its forthcoming Interim Report on issues of public participation currently before ICANN. The Summary includes major points from the Interim Report's conceptual analysis of the public interest in ICANN, detailed regional analyses of last year's election, and options for the future.

    The full Interim Report should be out later this week. NAIS is currently working on translating the Executive Summary into Spanish, French, and Chinese. The English version of the Executive Summary is currently available in HTML or in PDF form. You can also get a copy by e-mailing info@naisproject.org.

    Finally, NAIS also announced that it will be holding a lunch in Stockholm on June 2 to discuss the Interim Report."

    A copy of the NAIS posting with more details is below.

    1. In preparation for the upcoming ICANN meeting in Stockholm, the NGO and Academic ICANN Study is releasing its Interim Report on last year's At Large election and on the future of the public role in ICANN.

    The Executive Summary of that report is available online at http://www.naisproject.org/ or, for those without Web access, by e-mail to info@naisproject.org. The full Interim Report will be available online shortly. Translations of the Executive Summary in Spanish, French and Chinese will be available later this week.

    The Interim Report is preliminary in nature. NAIS will publish its Final Report, with recommendations, in September. We welcome comments, and look forward to continued discussion on this topic.

    2. NAIS also invites members of the ICANN community to a lunchtime briefing on the report this Saturday, June 2, at the Stockholm meeting. NAIS members will provide an overview of the Interim Report and host an open discussion of its contents. Please feel free to bring a bag lunch and join the conversation.

    DATE: Saturday, June 2nd, 12:00-13:15
    TIME: 12:00 - 13:15
    PLACE: First Hotel Royal Star, Skytten room (near the Stockholm International Fairs building, site of the meetings)

    We look forward to your comments and suggestions!

    The NAIS Project

    * * *

    The NGO and Academic ICANN Study (NAIS) is a collaboration of experts from around the world, formed to explore public participation in ICANN and the selection of At-Large Directors on ICANN's governing board. NAIS mirrors ICANN's own study effort, and was created to provide an independent examination, global in scope and grounded in a belief in the importance of public representation.

    For more information, please visit http://www.naisproject.org/ or contact info@naisproject.org.
