Greetings. Being a member of the NCSG I received this planning note regarding the draft NCUC agendas for Prague.
With apologies for cross posting, I wanted to raise two points:
One, the NCUC is considering the fairness of digital archery as an issue. From what I heard on yesterday's NARALO call, we don't consider it a public-interest issue (which, as you know, I disagree with, in other words, I agree with the NCUC.
Two, the NCUC is planning for Toronto.
So, I ask: Rather than remaining in silos, is there anything we can do to a) reach out to the NCUC on digital archery, in case some of us are of the same opinion, with the possibility some joint support can be lent?
And: Can we get with them on Toronto and possibly plan something together? We did do some joint event planning in San Francisco, which resulted in the well-attended Internet Town Hall.
Just a thought -- strength in numbers.

>Thanks, good points. Worth bearing in mind though that we've also started the tradition of doing NCSG policy meetings Monday mornings, as well as NCSG Tuesday afternoon sessions, where we can tackle such items as policy input opportunities & discussion of possible statements in the OF, Board meeting, comment periods, etc. So the questions is, what's the best division of labor across the three meetings. I'm inclined to think it best if the two constituency meetings do their respective administrativa & a basic ID of stances but then talk through GNSO policy issues together on Monday & Tues afternoon, but maybe there's a better configuration…?
>We also have a meeting with ALAC Monday after our policy meeting, 11-12. And probably a small coffee with NTIA folks that afternoon, sometime after the Internet governance session. So lots going on…

>> Digital archery was meant to objective and fair, seems (and this worth checking) that it is possible to provide solution that will consistently get within a couple of milliseconds of the target time. And that's a service applicants have to pay for: unfair.

>> Implications of the GAC's letter:
>> "Given the delays to the gTLD application process, the timing of upcoming ICANN meetings, and the amount of work involved, the GAC advises the Board that it will not be in a position to offer any advice on new gTLD applications in 2012.
>Isn't there a half a year left in 2012?
>> For this reason, the GAC is considering the implications of providing any GAC advice on gTLD applications. These considerations are not expected to be finalised before the Asia-Pacific meeting in April 2013."
>> worth a chat.
>>> This is a draft Agenda for the NCUC Constituency meeting on Tuesday morning of next weeks Prague meeting. This is the agenda that will be published on the website, but of course we can adjust the agenda based on participant priorities (and the outcomes of prior meetings such as the NCSG Policy Committee meeting on Monday).
>>> I'm interested to hear feedback from NCUC membership. In particular:
>>> What policy issues would you like to discuss during this meeting? (and note that some issues, including the ICRC/IOC/IGO special exemptions and the RAA negotiations, will be discussed during the NCSG meeting in the afternoon, and substantive discussion may be better there)
>>> and do you think the balance between policy issues, and organisational issues such as Outreach and capacity building, is right, or would you rather change the balance?
>>> 9:00 - 9:30 - Introductions, Discuss Agenda.
