    Membership Issues At Large: there it was gone
    posted by michael on Thursday June 20 2002, @12:05PM

    adam writes "Differences between the ICANN Board resolutions that created the evolution and reform committee and defined its work, and the reform committee's description of its brief from the board and the end result make for interesting comparison."

    Committee webpage http://www.icann.org/committees/evol-reform/ states "It was given its current name and charter by resolution 02.20 http://www.icann.org/minutes/prelim-report-14mar02.htm#02.20 on 14 March 2002. etc. etc. In that set of resolutions the Board instructed the committee to deal with 8 issues, the third addresses the "At Large" and reads:

    [3rd] meaningful participation and input from informed Internet users participating through an At Large mechanism, as described in resolution 02.17 http://www.icann.org/minutes/prelim-report-14mar02.htm#02.17;

    But see the evolution and reform committee's version at http://www.icann.org/committees/evol-reform/:

    [3rd] mechanisms for meaningful participation and input from informed Internet users;

    The At Large effort the board said it would support in Accra resolution [02.17] is neatly removed from the committee brief, and, no surprise, the committee's recommendations http://www.icann.org/committees/evol-reform/recommendations-31may02.htm make no mention of At Large, members or end users.

    After years of discussion, blue ribbon committees, a million dollars (+/-) ... gone.

    First rule of comedy (and ICANN) is timing. As I posted this topic, the evolution and reform committee published its blueprint for reform. Unlike the earlier May 31st recommendations, the blueprint does recognize the At Large process -- see section on the nominating committee and its selection. It recognizes the At Large in a minimal way, in an inconclusive way, and of course did not ask for comments on At Large during it's outreach. Adam
