Board adopts the Reconsideration Committee's recommendation to enhance transparency of telephonic board meetings votes and statements surrounding votes.
Whereas, in its report at the Public Forum on 14 July 2005, the Reconsideration Committee presented a recommendation based on Reconsideration Request 05-1, urging the ICANN Board to consider using real-time scribes to record all Board Meetings (including those Special Meetings held by teleconference).
Whereas, the ICANN Board has considered the Reconsideration Committee's recommendation, and has determined that it would be beneficial for the public to be able to review transcriptions of all voting and Board member statements in connection with votes, consistent with procedures to protect confidential or privileged information.
RESOLVED (05.__), the ICANN Board hereby adopts the recommendation of the Reconsideration Committee with regard to Reconsideration Request 05-1, and directs staff to take all reasonable steps to implement the proposed transparency recommendations relating to telephonic board meetings.
