Role responsibilities and time commitments of NRO NC members

The time commitments for members of the NRO NC (and by association, the ASO AC) can be quite considerable and include:

  • attending monthly meetings (held via video/teleconference) with the NRO NC which are generally held at 12:00pm (noon) UTC;
  • attending additional special meetings which can be called for any purpose at any time;
  • attending three conferences per year, being the first ICANN Meeting of the year and two APNIC conferences;
  • participating in additional NRO/ASO committees;
  • joining and actively participate in the APNIC Policy SIG mailing list and Open Policy Meetings; and
  • meeting with the APNIC Executive Council and the Policy SIG Chairs immediately following the Policy SIG meeting.

In addition to the above, meetings of the NRO NC and related committees are usually accompanied by briefing and background documents which should be read in order for NRO NC members to be able to actively participate in discussions.
