ICANN: Post IANA transition Empowered Community put at test

The Empowered Community (EC) created within the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) as a consequence of the IANA stewardship transition will undergo its first test. Following approval by the ICANN Board of amendments to the organisation’s fundamental bylaws, the EC is now called to consider and approve these amendments before they can go into effects. The amendments, which relate to moving some responsibilities from one Board Committee to another, will trigger a series of events including a Community Forum to be held on 27 June during the ICANN59 meeting.
