I want to suggest that we discuss issues on  "Evolving the ICANN
Multistakeholder Model".
There have been a lot of discussions recently around improving the
multistakeholder model within ICANN and Seun raised a critical Issue on the
multistakeholder model at the Kobe meeting. The board has also been looking
at this issue, and I believe it significantly affects us as a community. We
need to have a clear voice on areas in which we believe the model can be
improved cos it seems a lot of our views are being lost in the process and
a critical component of multistakeholder are trusting each other and
reaching a consensus that everyone can live with.  At the moment this seems
not to be exactly the case.
Therefore I suggest we need to articulate our points on this and put it
before the board especially as the meeting is being held in Africa and are
not going to have another meeting in Africa until after 2021 according to
the schedule.
I can be part of the drafting team
