Dear all,

Thanks so much for your invitation to the call.  I certainly was looking
forward to joining you on the call, but unfortunately, I have a serious
conflict that only came up earlier today (Mon.)  I am a consultant helping
prepare a strategic action plan for our Fisheries Department in The Gambia,
and we were in a workshop all day today discussing a draft plan I presented
a few weeks back.  We were hoping to go through the entire document today,
but we could not.  So we agreed to meet again tomorrow to complete our
review of the draft document.  For this reason, I will not be available to
join the call tomorrow, and I am most disappointed by this.

Having said that, I hope you have a successful meeting tomorrow.  In
addition, I would like to say that I hope your recommendations receive the
proper attention they deserve, and that in the end, needy new gTLD
applicants get the support they need.

One issue I would like you to discuss on the call is the timeline for the
finalization of the JAS WG report.  While I agree that it will help to
insist that the AG mention that needy applicants should seek support through
the process based the JAS WG report, I think it will help to provide a
timeline for the finalization of your report.

I'm also troubled by the fact that the GNSO has been rather slow in acting
on the JAS WG reports.  I fear such a situation might well be construed by
many as an effort by the GNSO to scuttle the entire process of seeking ways
and means to provide support to needy new gTLD applicants.  One important
product of such a perception would be that developing countries will feel
that ICANN is not sincere when it says (as the Board did in Nairobi last
year) that it is interested in launching an inclusive new gTLD program.  I
need not say that such a perception will also harm ICANN's efforts to
strengthen relations with developing countries, and get them on our side on
the many issues we'd like to have their support.  For this reason, I would
like hear what suggestions you have to the board to ensure that progress
cannot be hijacked by inaction by any party.

Finally, let me say a big "Thank you!!" again to all of you for your
tireless and selfless efforts on this matter.  Again, I am very sorry I
would not be able to join your call, and best wishes in your deliberations.

Have a great week, and safe travels to Singapore!

Sincerely,

Katim
