The ICANN Engagement team hold a day-long training called “Get Engaged in ICANN – Seminar for Registrars” at BMW Group Classic in Munich, Germany. The training took place in conjunction with Domain Pulse, a key annual event that gathers regional experts of the DNS industry. The RrSG was represented by Tobias Sattler (Vice Chair), Kristian Ørmen (Secretary) and Michele Neylon (GNSO Rep).
This event was well attended and provided an excellent opportunity for existing and new registrars, as well as new employees of existing registrars to get to know key RrSG members and ICANN staff. We look forward to working together further in the future.
The Registrar Stakeholder Group (RrSG) has joined its colleagues in the Registry Stakeholder Group, Eco Association of the Internet Industry and the Internet Infrastructure Coalition in raising its concerns with ICANN about GDPR.

After some discussions over the last couple of months, the Registrar Stakeholder Group decided to try something new and created a new sub-committee for technical and operational matters – TechOps.
The RrSG want to create room for more people from each member to get involved on the day to day business, to address technical and operational issues and review potential impacts based on new policies.
This sub-committee has no set agenda rather it should be an open space to exchange experiences, discuss ideas, provide feedback and raise issues that we can follow up with ICANN staff, RySG, other constituencies and 3rd parties.
The RrSG would like to ask our members to check internally if some of their software developers, product managers and/or other colleagues might want to join. If so, please let us know.
You may find more details about the TechOps Sub-Committee here.
One of the things that various members have raised is in relation to communication. Therefore, we want to improve it and thought some members may find it useful to have our own RrSG slack instance.
If you are a member and want to join our slack, please let us know.
