ICANN Submits Seventh Annual Report

ICANN has just submitted its seventh status report under ICANN/US Government Memorandum of Understanding to United States Department of Commerce (DoC) titled: "Report by ICANN to United States Department of Commerce Re: Progress Toward Objectives of Memorandum of Understanding". The report provides a review of recent ICANN developments including:

- Progress Towards Completion of ICANN's Reforms
- New Organization Structure
- Operational and Policy-Development Activities

Below is the summary excerpt from this report:

"In February 2002, ICANN embarked on an ambitious and comprehensive reform process designed to enhance its effectiveness in providing technical coordination services for the Internet, which reform made substantive progress in the second calendar quarter of 2003. After community consultation and input from ccTLD managers and other affected parties, and extensive dialog and debate within the ICANN ccTLD community, ICANN's Bylaws were further amended, most recently on 26 June 2003, establishing bylaws governing the activities of the country-code Names Supporting Organization ("ccNSO"), as well as the policy development process for this supporting organization. Approval of the bylaws and the process for the launch and establishment of the ccNSO at ICANN's meeting in Montréal with broad support within the ccTLD community marked the achievement of a major goal for the ICANN reform process. The ccNSO provides a dedicated forum for ccTLD managers to develop ICANN policies applicable to them, which can be directly recommended to the ICANN Board for action.

During the second quarter of 2003, considerable effort was expended in continued efforts to further the reform and transition process, culminating with a new board of directors taking seats at ICANN's Montréal meeting. In addition, during June 2003, the remaining five seats on the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) and three seats on the GNSO Council were filled by ICANN's 2002-2003 Nominating Committee.

With the election of a new slate of board members, including continuing board members, and adoption of a new process for nomination and election of board members entirely, the goals of the transition to ICANN 2.0 in reforming the election process to the board have been largely completed, without significant interruption or impairment of the organization's capabilities during the transition period that commenced in December 2002.

The following summary description of status of the state of ICANN begins with a discussion of the progress in ICANN's structural, operational and inter-organizational reforms. It also describes organization achievements in enhancing ICANN's ability to accomplish the tasks that are assigned to it and significant policy-development and operational activities for the quarter. Finally, it describes various other significant activities in which ICANN engaged during the quarter."
