Looks interesting Thato, and thanks for the reminder that we need to have a call.  Would the FC be available to discuss this further on Friday at 14:00  UTC, December 7?

Hi all,

I just wanted to bring to your attention an opportunity for the FC to run a session during ICANN 64, also note that the Operational Procedure has not yet been adopted, stifling activities of the FC. Based on the last attempt to coordinate a meeting during ICANN63, below was the proposed agenda.

NCSG Finance Committee (90 min)

Objective: To introduce NCSG FC to the NCSG community and discuss the Finance Committee Operational Procedures (OP) and the NCSG Charter in order to find synergy between the two documents.
People needed: ICANN Finance, GNSO Finance rep, FC member or members, NCSG EC and members

Agenda: Face to face meeting with NCSG members (90 minutes)

Part 1: Establishment of the NCSG FC - 45 minutes
1. Introduction, background of the FC and committee responsibilities as listed in the NCSG Charter - 10 min
2. Overview of the NCSG Charter and Finance Committee OP (oversight, participation, accountability and auditing function issues) - 15 min
3. Q and A - 10 min
4. Discussions on how to synergies the 2 documents and harmonize contention areas based on community comments (volunteers)- 10 min

Part 2: NCSG Finances and fundraising for NCSG - 45 min
5. Discussion on NCSG priorities, opportunities and needs - 10 min

MEETING 2 (Optional depending on availability of a slot):
NCSG FC outreach during constituency day or NCSG outreach sessions (FC to sit on a panel and/or present online)

Objective:  To call on volunteers to help the FC in execution of its responsibilities (information sharing and creating awareness)

People needed: New comers and NCSG members

Presentation areas
1. Introduction to the FC and current activities - 5 min
2. FC plans and how to participate - 3 min
3. Q and A - 5 min

Please kindly provide comment around this because I think it would be very beneficial if we could plan a webinar with the FC first and then with community members around this issues before ICANN 64 and before we can solicit their comments on this meeting request as I will be attending this meeting under the fellowship program, thanks.

Thato Mfikwe.
