Members of the GAC and the ICANN Board continue to participate as members of the BGRI to ensure that the spirit of previous Accountability and Transparency Review (ATRT) recommendations are implemented.  In addition to continuing the follow-through on many of those recommendations, this group has continued to explore initiatives and opportunities that can improve the GAC's work and interaction with the ICANN Board.  For ICANN63 the agenda includes:

  1. Opening Remarks

  3. Schedule to address GAC Advice from the Barcelona Communiqué
  4. Review of Open GAC Advice Items, including placement on website of the GAC Advice Principles.
