The following materials follow the Welcome Letter sent by the Chair of the Noncommercial Users Constituency (NCUC) to the broader membership welcoming new members into the fold.
We have divided our material into chapters, which have been designed to be distributed by email (one chapter a week for seven weeks). The goal is to introduce ICANN and its policy development and policy making processes in ‘bite-size pieces.’
At the end of each email, we will invite comments and questions from the new member. The NCUC has now established a special listserv to which the new members will send their questions. NCUC’s onboarding team will monitor this listserv, with oversight from the Chair of the constituency. Depending on the nature of the question, mentees will respond, escalate to the mentors, or we may refer the question to subject matter experts throughout the Constituency.
We have received permission from the NCUC Chair to operationalise the implementation of this new system from August 2017.
Thank you for your very helpful discussions of this material at our Onboarding meetings. Input continues to be warmly welcomed!
