Meetings & Records

Full meetings of the GAC are usually conducted three times a year in conjunction with an ICANN public meeting. They may also be conducted intersessionally. GAC meetings are usually open. This part of the website provides access to past, present and future GAC meeting materials, including other calls and interactions the GAC has internally and with other groups.

ICANN74 Hybrid Meeting Agenda

Select edition:


The Hague, Netherlands 13 June 2022 - 16 June 2022


Management of the GAC ICANN74 Hybrid Meeting:

(GAC Members login recommended)

The ICANN74 Policy Forum will be held in The Hague, Netherlands. The meeting will be conducted as a hybrid event to accommodate both in-person and virtual attendance. The GAC meeting schedule for the ICANN74 Hybrid Policy Forum has been developed to leverage that new format.

The GAC public meeting during ICANN74 will feature thirteen (13) individual real-time topic sessions and up to six (6) Communique drafting sessions over a period of four calendar days from 13 June to 16 June 2022. In addition to the GAC agenda, GAC delegates will also have the opportunity to participate in one (1) cross-community plenary session on “Five Year Follow Up to Who Sets ICANN’s Priorities?” and a community discussion forum on ‘’Geopolitical Forum’’. Later in each day, participants will be able to participate in dedicated “Networking Hours” organized by ICANN org to connect with other meeting attendees.

GAC Meeting Schedule:
