1) Virtual Walk Through of Logistics - Nick Tomasso and Joe Kiragu

Nick Tomasso, ICANN General Manager for Meetings and Conferences, will 
take attendees through a narrative of the logistical arrangements from 
the point that attendees disembark from the plane through to arrival at 
the hotel. Following that our Kenyan hosts will take the participants 
through the process of moving from their hotel back and forth to the 
other hotels and the conference site. Requirements on arrival will also 
be recapped. Joe Kiragu, Board Chairperson, Kenya Network Information 
Centre (KENIC), will add any comments he thinks appropriate.

2) Review of Security Situation and Arrangements

Geoff Bickers, ICANN's Director of Security, will review security 
arrangements for attendees. Geoff will also provide an overview of 
existing security information that has been published with reminders of 
online links for further information. Board Chairperson, Kenya Network 
Information Centre (KENIC), will be invited to make any comments he 
wishes to add.

3) Remote Participation Options

Nick Ashton-Hart will briefly review remote participation arrangements 
for Nairobi.


Questions and Answers related to the above subjects will be taken from 
the audience. Members will be asked to raise their hands in the Adobe 
Connect room (or ask in Adobe Connect chat to be placed into the queue) 
wherever possible. Nick Ashton-Hart will call on questioners on a 
first-come, first-served basis. There is no hard close for the call; the 
presenters are happy to remain online until all questions have been 
answered; if for some reason a participant drops or must drop and a 
question arrives for them, this will be passed along so it can be answered.

The agenda and material presented will be identical at each session. 
Recordings will be posted online for those unable to attend.
