This thread was initiated by an ALAC announcement.

As you know, the At-Large Advisory Committee was
formally established by way of the ICANN bylaws
effective as of 15 December 2002.

The bylaws also call for the following:

The Board shall cause a periodic review, if feasible
no less frequently than every three years, of the
performance and operation of each Supporting
Organization, each Supporting Organization Council,
each Advisory Committee (other than the Governmental
Advisory Committee), and the Nominating Committee by
an entity or entities independent of the organization
under review... The consideration by the Board
includes the ability to revise the structure or
operation of the parts of ICANN being reviewed by a
two-thirds vote of all members of the Board. 

As we have now exceeded the three-year time span
recommended for Advisory Committee Review, and as both
operational and structural issues pertaining to this
advisory committee remain a source for concern for
many in the community, may we ask when ICANN will
commence the overdue review required by the bylaws?  

If this hasn't yet been scheduled, may we ask you to
add this item to the agenda of the next ICANN Board
meeting so that the public at large through the
comment process may at some point be given its
opportunity to formally make its sentiment known?
