ISOC-NY Forum: Civic Representation in ICANN: What Now?

Joly MacFie writes: The Internet Society’s New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) will be holding a public forum at NYU on Oct 8 2009 to discuss, in the post JPA world, civic representation in ICANN. Specific concerns are the current restructuring of the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council, and the replacement of the At-Large Liaison to the ICANN Board by a seated member. Will the creation of new constituencies serve to balkanize the Noncommercial users and dilute their influence? Will an At-large board member be less answerable to the rank and file? These questions and more will be discussed. The public are welcome to attend and the event will be webcast live.

What: An ISOC-NY Forum
When: Thurs Oct 8 2009 6:45pm - 8:45pm EST
Where: Warren Weaver Hall NYU, 251 Mercer St Rm 317,
New York NY 10012 (directions)
Who: Dr Milton Mueller; Beau Brendler; Danny Younger
