Draft New ICANN Bylaws Posted for 30-day Public Comment
Now that the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) and Cross
Community Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability
(CCWG-Accountability) proposals have been transmitted to NTIA, one of the
key implementation planning items is to amend the ICANN Bylaws to reflect
the recommendations in those Proposals. The proposed draft of the New ICANN
Bylaws was developed collaboratively by the ICANN legal team and the
independent counsel hired to advise the CCWG-Accountability and the Cross
Community Working Group to Develop an IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal
on Naming Related Functions (CWG-Stewardship). In developing the Draft New
ICANN Bylaws, the attorneys consulted a Bylaws Coordination Group populated
with both community and Board members, as well as with the CWG-Stewardship
and the CCWG-Accountability.

Both the independent counsel to the community groups and ICANN's General
Counsel have confirmed that the Draft New ICANN Bylaws are consistent with
the community proposals relating to the IANA Stewardship Transition.

These proposed draft Bylaws, are out for a 30-day public comment from 21
April – 21 May to allow any interested party to review and provide
feedback. This timeline allows for comments to be analyzed and incorporated
in time for a tentative 27 May adoption of the Bylaws by the ICANN Board.

NTIA has stated that it needs to see that changes to the Bylaws have been
adopted sufficient to implement the Transition Proposals before NTIA can
complete its review of the Transition Proposals. This public comment period
is designed to meet that deadline.
