Dear Matogoro,

Thanks for such a clear and detailed overview of the SSR2 RT. It will be really useful to receive such updates on a regular basis, whenever you are able to.

When the RT was paused, the whole ICANN community was concerned about such a decision that the Board took and actions were undertaken to understand the reasoning.

I personally followed this issue since the pausing and as a member of the GNSO Council, we worked on doing our best to unpause it. Which happened with the involvement of other SO/AC leaders.

My hope is that you continue working and help the new members that were added (after former members resigned) to support you. Good luck for the upcoming meeting in DC.

Best regards,
Arsène Tungali,

The Board has received and carefully considered advice from the SSAC and feedback from a number of SO/AC chairs expressing concern about the composition, process and structure of the Security, Stability and Resiliency Review (SSR2).

ICANN also appointed Phil Khoury as an external professional to facilitate the transition process and help the review team in restarting and moving forward with its work.
> Since the un-pause note, the team has held about five online remote meeting to address various issues related with SSR2 work.
> Finally, we are meeting in Washington DC from 22 - 24 August, 2018 in our first Face-to-Face meeting to take forward our work.
> Looking forward working with you all and as always your usual support and advice will be highly appreciated.
