Subject: Re: Questions for The Board-NCSG meeting
As I mentioned, I was planning to put all the suggested topics in a doodle poll to see which ones were the top 3 choices.
On Trademarks we have 2 suggestions so far:
- One sort of blank question form Konstantinos suggesting was ask something about trademarks
- the specific one from Wendy.
As these are conversation starters, I am sure that all points of view on the topics could be expressed. Also once we have the top 3, there will be an opportunity for some word smithing.
Also I will only preparing the poll a little later, so still time to suggest other questions

An NCSG discussion about trademarks with the board may not be the most efficient use of the time as we, members of the NCSG, do not have a singular agenda to push.

>> As was pointed out in the email sent regarding the Board-NCSG meeting in Singapore, and as mention on today's call, we need to propose 3 questions to the Board. The Board will also propose 3 questions to us.
>> I will give people another day or so to suggest topics.
>> On Wednesday evening, I will put together a doodle pool of the choices and over the course of Thursday, NCSG members will be invited to pick their top choices.
>> On Friday, I will write up the 3 top topics, send it to this list for 24 hour review and then send it to the Board for their consideration over the weekend.
>> To start the list we have the 3 topics we picked last time when the meeting was cancelled and two suggestions provided by Konstantinos:
>> 1. We would like to better understand how the Board weighs GAC advice in relation to GNSO recommendations, the CWG work and community comment on the implementation in the by-laws mandated process. Of special interest are issues related to MAPO/Rec6 and Community Objections.
>> 2. We would be very interested to hear how the the Board reads both the substance and process of Cross-Community WGs and the JAS group in particular to understand what the Board is thinking viable supports might be and how they regard the recommendations for fee reductions.
>> 3. While understanding that the NCSG Stakeholder Group charter is waiting on the approval of the standardized New Constituency process recommended by the Structural Improvements Committee, we would like to understand what issues, if any, may be blocking Board approval of both the New Constituency Process and the NCSG Stakeholder Group charter.
>> 4. The role of the GAC within ICANN and how this might affect its stakeholder groups.
>> (this may entail a re-write of #1)
>> 5. Trademark issues.
>> (might be good to have more detail on this question)
>> Please send you suggestions for inclusion in the doodle poll. Updates on the questions from last time also requested.
