You are invited to attend a webinar regarding the 360 Assessment of the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) <https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2-2014-08-04-en> . This briefing will provide the ICANN community with an overview of what the 360 Assessment is, how to participate and how it fits into the GNSO Review process.

Date: Tuesday, 12 August 2014 Time: 19:00-19:30 UTC (time converter: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=GNSO+Review+360+Assessment+Webinar <http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=GNSO+Review+360+Assessment+Webinar&iso=20140812T19&am=30> &iso=20140812T19&am=30)

Date: Wednesday, 13 April 2014 Time: 14:00-14:30 UTC (time converter: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=GNSO+Review+360+Assessment+Webinar <http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=GNSO+Review+360+Assessment+Webinar&iso=20140813T14&p1=1440&am=30> &iso=20140813T14&p1=1440&am=30)

The webinar will be recorded and available for those who may not be able to join the sessions.

The Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO <http://gnso.icann.org/> ) serves an important function – it is responsible for developing and recommending to the ICANN Board substantive policies relating to generic top-level domains.

The GNSO Review is part of ICANN's commitment to continuous improvement, accountability and transparency. It uses mechanisms and measures to maintain public confidence in the viability, reliability and accountability of ICANN.

ICANN's Bylaws <https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/bylaws-2012-02-25-en> 1 require that its structures, including the GNSO, be reviewed on a five-year cycle. The purpose of the review is to evaluate organizational effectiveness of the GNSO, acknowledge areas that are working well, identify areas that need improvement and affect needed changes.

The quality, validity and acceptance of the GNSO Review and the resulting improvements depend on relevant and useful feedback from a diverse and representative group of people. This is the cornerstone of ICANN's bottom-up multistakeholder model.

View the video of Jennifer Wolfe, GNSO Councilor and Chair of the GNSO Review Working Party <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BcvYFcO-cM> 

The 360 Assessment, a new component within the organizational reviews, is designed to gather data for an independent examiner, Westlake Governance <https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-3-2014-06-23-en> , to use in the review process and may also inform GNSO self-improvement efforts.

The 360 Assessment is an easy-to-use online tool for the GNSO community, other ICANN structures and community members, the Board and staff to provide valuable feedback to the independent examiner.

The 360 Assessment will be live from 4-August-2014 23:59 UTC to 10-September-2014 23:59 UTC.

1 Article X <https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/bylaws-2012-02-25-en#X>  of ICANN Bylaws provides further detail. ICANN's Bylaws <https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/bylaws-2012-02-25-en>  require that its structures, including the GNSO, be reviewed on a five-year cycle. According to the Bylaws, the goal of the review is "to determine (i) whether that organization has a continuing purpose in the ICANN structure, and (ii) if so, whether any change in structure or operations is desirable to improve its effectiveness."
