Hi all,

We’ve just finished a Capacity Building Working Group conference call and here is what we discussed.  Please feel free to comment.


It was discussed as to whether the Capacity Building (CB) survey should go out separately from the ATLASII survey since the CB survey is rather long.  However, both surveys are urgent.  Some felt (as I did) that this would be confusing to the ALSs – being hit with two surveys almost simultaneously – and that the response rate would suffer.  It was decided that the CB survey be shortened and then combined with the ATLASII survey in order to prevent this.  This should be finalized by the end of next week.

It will be mandatory for each ALS that wishes to go to the Summit to complete this survey.

Capacity Building for the Summit

We need to provide periodic learning modules to the ALSs in preparation for the Summit and also to respond to specific needs for specific programs/needs.  We still must decide on the frequency of the modules coming out.

We will use all tools available for CB (mailing lists, webinars, etc.).  We will be defining these needs and defining the programs to address the needs.  We will then give these to the ICANN Academy should they wish to use them.  This will avoid duplication in work and be more efficient.


It was felt that we need to ensure that the CBWG work very closely with both the ATLASII WG and the Secretariats Group.  We need the efforts of all three groups working together for the Summit to be successful so that the ALSs will be ready for the Summit.  The Secretariat group needs to be on board to encourage their ALSs to respond to the survey.  We also need to define a deadline for the survey and ensure that it is in line with the deadline for the ATLASII survey.
