A public comment period has opened today for 30 days on the topic of travel

Last year, ICANN created travel procedures to clarify which members of the
ICANN community were to receive travel support for that fiscal year (2009).
At the same time, it was announced that they would be reviewed after the
first year of use.

As well as that review commitment, ICANN has received diverse feedback from
across the community for improving the procedures. That feedback covered a
number of topics: level of support; what costs covered and did not cover
(e.g. food, Internet access); booking travel; and visas, among others.

This comment period is intended to gather further feedback before revised
procedures are introduced into the FY2010 budget for approval at the Sydney
meeting in June.

A presentation on ICANN travel support was provided at the ICANN Mexico City
meeting in which the purpose of the travel support and insights gathered
from the current year's experiences were discussed. Links to the materials
produced for that meeting and a transcript are provided below.

The public comment period will close on 24 April 2009. If you wish to send
in a comment, email travel-support-2010 at icann.org. All comments can be
viewed at
