    Membership Issues At Large Study Committee meeting
    posted by jon on Friday August 10 2001, @04:13AM

    The schedule, agenda, and webcast info are now available for the At-Large Study Committee's meeting on Monday in Silicon Valley. The committee members hope that participants will speak to the issues of how to define and implement an at-Large membership. Who should be involved in ICANN? Should membership be open to anyone who's interested, or should it be limited in some way? Should the membership include non-profit entities and businesses? Should there be membership fees? How should the at-large membership be incorporated in ICANN's structure and decision-making process? How many at-large Directors should serve on ICANN's Board, and how should they be selected? Should at-large involvement take place within a country or regional structure? What new processes and structures are needed within ICANN to facilitate at-large member involvement? Do the existing Supporting Organizations need to be changed?

    The meeting is four hours long. Opening and closing remarks and the coffee break should take up about one hour. The remaining three hours will be devoted to to comments from the six panelists, follow-up questions from the moderator, and audience (and ALSC member) participation.

    The At Large Study Committee is chaired by Mr Carl Bildt. Co-chairmen are Mr Chuck Costello and Mr Pindar Wong. Esther Dyson is indeed on the At Large Study Committee, but she is not holding the position you suggest.

    By the way, this is quite slow reporting by ICANNwatch. I submitted news on this a couple of days ago and I did it very late. My submissions were never posted or approved. There could be plenty of reasons for that, like my submissions not beeing straight to the point, written with poor grammar or whatever. However, you can not use ICANNwatch as a news source. It is simple not quick enough on news (I love the service provided, though, this is just a reflection on the speed of reporting). Be sure to always look at the Study Committee web site to learn the latest about the committee work.
