Whereas, under ICANN's bylaws, Article VI, Section 13, ICANN is required to hold an annual meeting each year for the purpose of electing officers and for the transaction of such other business as may come before the meeting;

Whereas, Article VI, Section 13 presently specifies that such annual meeting shall be held in the fourth quarter of the calendar year, at ICANN's office in Marina Del Rey, California, and be open to the public;

Whereas, the Board has determined that such bylaws provision as presently drafted is unnecessarily restrictive for ICANN from an administrative and cost perspective;

Whereas, the Board desires that ICANN be permitted to set the annual meeting for ICANN at Marina Del Rey, California or any other appropriate place of the Board's time and choosing, provided such annual meeting is held within 14 months of the immediately preceding annual meeting;
The following resolution was presented for consideration by Mr. Pisanty, and seconded by Mr. Palage:Resolved [03.145] that the Board hereby instructs the staff to prepare an amendment to the bylaws for public posting for the purpose of allowing the annual meeting for ICANN to be held at Marina Del Rey, California or any other appropriate place of the Board's time and choosing, provided such annual meeting is held within 14 months of the immediately preceding annual meeting.
(The Board approved the above resolution by a 7-0-0 vote.)
