ccNSO travel support slots FY18

Date: 
04 August 2017

In April 2017, a drafting team was tasked to prepare a submission to the ICANN FY2018 Budget and/or Operational Plan, seeking an increase in the number of ccNSO traveling slots. The council statement, requesting an increase of the current 12 slots, was submitted and published here: https://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/ccnso-council-fy18-budget-op-28apr17-en.pdf[ccnso.icann.org]

Following that submission, the ccNSO was allocated an additional five (5) travel support slots for each ICANN public meeting in FY18. Here is the relevant language set forth in the ICANN Org replies to community comments and requests made as part of the ICANN's Draft FY18 Operating Plan and Budget, and Five-Year Operating Plan Update (see - https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/report-comments-fy18-budget-02jun17-en.pdf[icann.org] at pages 31 and 35). The ICANN board-approved FY18 Budget is in effect since the 23rd of July (at the expiration of the 28-day period since the Board approval).

The ccNSO secretariat informed ICANN constituency travel of the distribution of the ccNSO travel support slots for ICANN60. The list of ccNSO funded travellers is published here: https://ccnso.icann.org/about/funded-travel[ccnso.icann.org]
