Public Meeting Principles
The ICANN Board has been seeking the community's feedback on the effectiveness of virtual Public Meetings, how to better support the community's work at meetings, and other aspects that should be integrated into ICANN's in-person meeting strategy. ICANN org is actively working with Supporting Organization and Advisory Committee leadership to develop community guidelines for Public Meeting planning. We hope these guidelines will bolster continuity, transparency, and accountability for the decisions made on the community's behalf by the designated representatives that work with ICANN org planning both virtual and in-person Public Meetings.
