Meetings & Records
GAC meetings are usually conducted in conjunction with an ICANN meeting. They may also be conducted inter-sessionally. GAC meetings are usually open. This part of the website provides both GAC Members and others members of the community with access to past, present and future GAC meeting material including agendas, transcripts, location details, recordings and minutes. For GAC Members there is also access to preparatory material ahead of forthcoming meetings such as the draft agenda, briefings and presentations, remote participation details and travel assistance.
The Opening Plenary Session is the first opportunity for GAC participants to gather, introduce themselves and prepare for the meeting week.
During this session, the GAC Chair typically offers information and updates to the GAC about developments since the last meeting and preparation for the meeting week ahead:
- Welcome and Introduction of GAC Chair and Vice Chairs
- GAC Chair Overview of Meeting Week Activities (incl. operational matters - elections)
- GAC Chair review and assessment of ICANN68 Action Items
