Community Global Events

On 21 November, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will be conducting a day-long training called “Get Engaged in ICANN - Seminar for Registrars” in Stockholm, Sweden. The training session will take place in conjunction with Nordic Domain Days, an annual event that gathers regional experts of the Domain Name System (DNS) industry. See below for the agenda.

Engagement with the registrar community is an important component of realizing ICANN’s multistakeholder model of governance. This pilot initiative is a result of discussions with the registrar community wanting to learn more about topics ranging from ICANN functions to key DNS issues, and is part of ICANN’s efforts to encourage effective engagement from its stakeholders, and invite newcomers to participate.

Who should attend
*Registrars newly accredited by ICANN or interested in ICANN accreditation
*New staff at established ICANN-accredited registrars, particularly those involved in ICANN’s compliance processes and policy work
