As more information on the ICANN Board Panel, this is what has been shared by ICANN just an hour and half ago.

Would have liked to have it discussed at the CRISP Team call if I found out earlier.

What I have in mind to talk about is below.

I imagine it's COB for most of you already (It's already Saturday morning in Tokyo) but I welcome your feedback, if you have time to see this and have comments, before the call on 15:30-17:00UTC 25h April.
I would appreciate it you could share this before UTC 13:00 25th April, so I have some time to think about how to incoroporate. Thanks!

 - In terms of the transition process, transparency is extremely important. This importance has been confirmed community discussions at RIR forums.
   We have requested the RIRs to be transparent in the process and trus the RIRs will stand by this.
   We expect further coordination is to come throught the ICG but in case there rises any situation to consider changes to the proposals developed from the community, it should be communicated in transparent manner to the community 
   with rationale on what this reconsideration is needed. It would be helpful if ICANN Board can gives this assurance in any area ICANN would be involved.

 - From this timing, close communication between the three operational communities is needed, not necessarily only through the ICG.
   If each of the operational communities would highlight and publicly share what needs coordination with other operational communities, it would be very helpful.
   From the numbers, it is IPR. We have shared this at ICANN52 but if there is additional better way in communicating this, happy to consider it.
   The numbers are open to talk and communicate with the chairs of the other operational communities as a way of deepning the understanding of each others situation.
   With the note that coordination should be take place through the ICG and no decisions are to be made.

 - In terms of the condition of the transition, stability is the priority. to do this, keep changes to the minimum, focus on elements what is affected by the stewardship transition from the NTIA.
   There seems to be misunderstanding that the numbers community wishes to move away from the ICANN. We simply want to have the ability for the numbers community to chose the IANA operator.
   This is what the NTIA IANA contract says today, and we are simply replacing this to the community, as a part of the stewarship transition to the bottom up, global, multistakeholder community.

   As a related point, concerns have been expressed on this may destabilize the system or lead.
   It is hard to imagine a situation where the numbers community would wish to move to the IANA operator at the risk of operational stability, as this would affect the services they will be receiving.
   This balance will be kept even more than the NTIA as it is in the numbers community to maintain stable and reliable operation.

 - Accurate understanding of the current status and implications of the proposals are important.
   The numbers community have prepared FAQ and slides of our proposal. We would be happy to consider adding more information to be shared on the numbers to deepen understanding so input is welcome.
   If ICANN Board could consider ways to communicate such information within the responsibilities and activities of the ICANN, it would be helpful, in having stakeholders outside the numbers community understand better about our 
   current arragements and the proposal.

From: Sally Costerton <sally.costerton at icann.org>

For those of you joining us tomorrow for our video panel, I just wanted to let you know how we plan to run the panel tomorrow.  

We will structure it as a brainstorm - the idea is for you and the Board to hear from each other where you think we need to focus our efforts to conclude this process. I'll come to each of you participating and ask you to provide a five minute overview of the key issues you see from your community/your experience that the ICANN Board needs to consider to ensure the oversight transition is successfully completed.  Once we've heard from all of you, I'll turn the discussion over to the Board members and ask them to share their priorities .  The goal of the session is to share priorities and ensure everyone is best positioned to work collaboratively towards completion. 

Looking forward to talking to you tomorrow - do let Theresa or I know if you need any more information. 
Best wishes
