Dear Bylaws Coordination Group,

Please find attached a document – DRAFT NEW ICANN BYLAWS (vers. 2Apr)
(“DRAFT BYLAWS”) for your review and discussion. As you will recall the
last full draft was provided to you on 18 March, with the promise to
provide another full turn of the DRAFT BYLAWS for your review today on 2
April.  The DRAFT BYLAWS attached is the current working draft among the
legal drafting group.  There is also an Issue List attached, which are a
set of additional questions and clarifications requested from the Bylaws
Coordination Group.

 We ask that you share the attachments with your CCWG, ICG and CWG
colleagues who will be reviewing this during this critical work week

*Recent Work* – During the past two weeks the legal drafting group, made up
of Sidley’s team, Adler’s team and ICANN's Legal team reviewed and worked
through mark ups and redrafts of the various sections of new ICANN Bylaws.
Also, we have held four separate meetings with the Bylaws Coordination
Group during this two-week period asking questions and incorporating that
feedback into the new draft.  There is likely to be the need for some
additional discussions as we work toward a public comment version of the
new ICANN bylaws.

*More Work to Do* – There is still work to do on the DRAFT BYLAWS, in
identifying and working through any remaining provisions in the draft that
are not clear, finding any remaining open issues, improving the provisions,
and polishing the draft before publication for public comment.  The legal
teams remain engaged in review mode and are available for questions and
comments during this period.

*Legal Teams have not yet “certified”* – Since a) the Bylaws Coordination
Group, CWG and CCWG have not yet reviewed and reacted to these DRAFT
BYLAWS, b) there are still remaining open issues, and c) there is still
review and polishing to be done by the legal teams – the legal teams have
not indicated yet that the current DRAFT BYLAWS fully meets the
recommendations within the Proposals.

As we have indicated above there is still work to be done, including
receiving the feedback from those reviewing these DRAFT BYLAWS this week
before the legal teams will be in a position to certify the posting version
for Public Comment

*Next Steps* –

1)   *Now until 13 April* – members of CCWG, CWG, Bylaws Coordination
Group, Board and ICG to complete review of these DRAFT BYLAWS and provide
feedback to legal teams;

2)   *Now until 18 April*, (with particular focus during week of 13-18
April) – legal teams to update DRAFT BYLAWS working in coordination with
the Bylaws Drafting Group;

3)   *20 April* – posting date for public comment period for new proposed
bylaws – with legal teams supporting that the new proposed bylaws meets the
proposal recommendations.


As before, we look forward to working with all of you in the coming days,
to get ICANN’s Bylaws in the best form possible to effectuate these
important changes.

We hope these views of the documents are useful and that you receive them
in the spirit that they are offered… to help all of us to be able to
collaborate and work through these Bylaws changes in the most effective way
possible — to enable the creation of a new and stronger, community
empowered ICANN.

John Jeffrey, Holly Gregory, and Rosemary Fei
