Hello, my name is Julia Charvolen and I will be monitoring this chat room. In this role, I am the voice for the remote GAC participants.GAC Members who wish to submit a question or comment that you want to be read aloud on the mic, please type your question or comment in English and start with a <QUESTION> and end with a “</QUESTION>” or <COMMENT> </COMMENT>. Text outside these quotes will be considered as part of “chat” and will not be read out loud.Time permitting, we'd like to get to all comments and questions, but we will give priority to comments and questions from GAC members.Be assured that if we don't have time for reading all, the chat transcript is preserved in the meeting records.This session includes “live” interpretation in the 6 UN languages, plus Portuguese.All chat sessions are being archived and follow the ICANN Expected Standards ofBehavior: https://meetings.icann.org/en/expected-standards-behavior.

Thanks Rob, Indeed 1:1 will be highly appreciated
Rodrigo Espinola
Can a Policy Entrepreneur have the opportunity to advise GAC directly or should it do it by one of an IiCANN member? How many members have to agree in order for a consensus to be done? Thanks so much
Rob Hoggarth - ICANN Org
FYI, the Communique is the major traditional channel for GAC advice, but the GAC is not limited to that format.
Rob Hoggarth - ICANN Org
@Rodrigo. …many members of the ICANN community have substantial interest in "advising" the GAC through audiences at ICANN public meetings, etc.! :-) Most often those interaction takes place in the context of bilateral community discussions during ICANN public meetings.
jorge cancio (GAC Switzerland)
even the Communique session was opened, so that everyone can see how it is drafted (that happened in 2016, if I recall correctly)
Rob Hoggarth - ICANN Org
@Rodrigo Part 2 - the GAC Operating Principles - https://gac.icann.org/operating-principles/operating-principles-june-2017 - are a useful guide on GAC decision making. Nicolas provided a good description of consensus being reached in the absence of objection. The Operating Principles refer to quorum requirements in certain instances.
Rob Hoggarth - ICANN Org
As some of you may have seen in one of my recent emails, the GAC still has an opening for the leadership role (Chair or Co-Chair) for the Universal Acceptance and Internationalized Domain Names Working Group.
Rodrigo Espinola
Thanks, will check that link. Appreciated

Really useful Rob to as all!
Nigel Hickson GAC UK
Agree, Rob, GAC members play a role in many cross Community Groups including in the different "Policy Development Processes" (PDPs).
jorge cancio (GAC Switzerland)
indeed - GAC participants also realised that engaging in PDP work is normally more efficient in order to getting public policy interests duly considered than waiting for the formal GAC Advice phase
Rob Hoggarth - ICANN Org
Great questions from Nepal. The flow chart reflects the process as outlined in the Bylaws. Apologies for the in-person participants regarding the readability of the slide. We did not anticipate the speakers talking about the individual elements of the “flow” . The slide deck itself is easier to read.
