Welcome to the GAC website! Effective 18 December 2018, this site is the GAC’s sole web resource for news and information about GAC activities. If you have difficulty finding any current or past GAC information, please email gac-staff@icann.org.

Work Efforts

At any given time, the GAC works to examine a range of issues related to the functions and responsibilities of ICANN. GAC Members use the information to develop policy positions within their own administrations and the GAC as a whole may try to reach a consensus position on particular matters. Having reached a consensus view, the GAC usually then provides advice to the ICANN Board. This section of the GAC website provides the GAC Working Group Members tools to manage their work, meetings, research and collaborative documents. It also provides an anthology of previous GAC work efforts related to each ICANN topic of interest, which is available to any user to review.

ICANN67 Meeting - Additional Briefings and Updates
Last Updated: 06 Mar 2020
Status: Active

In preparation for the ICANN67-Cancun meeting, GAC Support Staff prepared a number of topical briefings for GAC members that were organized according to the GAC session agenda for the public meeting. Those briefings provided basic background information about the session topic, updates on recent developments regarding the topic, previews of the proposed session agendas and links to other resources of information about the session subject matter.

Although some of those ICANN67 sessions have now been removed from the meeting agenda to accommodate a more streamlined “virtual” meeting schedule, the information is still relevant and can be a useful resource for GAC participants to stay current on those matters. Those informational briefings, listed alphabetically by their briefing titles, are provided on this page for GAC member reference.

Please contact GAC Support staff at gac-staff@icann.org if you have questions about any of the briefing topics.
