I. Best Current Operational Practices
III. IGF Open Consultations and MAG Meeting
IV. OECD and IPv6

I. Best Current Operational Practices
We continue to present the idea of leveraging various regional efforts in
developing "best current operational practices" (BCOPs) into a global
repository, where applicable. Recent presentations of the idea for public
feedback have included: INET Denver, North American IPv6 Summit, RIPE
regional meeting in Macedonia as well as the RIPE meeting in Dublin, the
ARIN Public Policy Meeting, the Caribbean Network Operator Group meeting.
Near future outings include the Eurasian Network Operator Group (ENOG) in
St Petersburg. Feedback at each event so far has been in support of
creating this repository.

The outcome of this meeting was positive and ISOC's participation was
well-received by many countries. Specific items included: Lynn St.
Amour's remarks at the Strategic Dialogue, op-ed in Computer World, ISOC
contribution to WTPF, ISOC opening statement to the WTPF (delivered by
Lynn St. Amour), ISOC-hosted dinner for I* plus key Member States. ISOC
provided the Vice Chair of Working Group 1, held several bilateral
meetings with delegations from key countries, and made several
interventions during the meeting.

III. IGF Open Consultations and MAG Meeting
Markus Kummer chaired the IGF Open Consultations and the MAG meeting in
Geneva on 21-23 May. The meeting went well and there was a general desire
to move forward. Proposed theme for the 2013 is "Building Bridges
- Enhancing Multistakeholder Collaboration for Growth and Sustainable
Development". However, the Chinese MAG member did not join the general
consensus and the report will go forward to the UN in New York stating
that there was one dissenting opinion.

IV. OECD and IPv6
ISOC is participating in a series of meetings of a Volunteer Group set up
to draft the OECD ICCP statement and a possible Council recommendation on
the economic benefits of IPv6 deployment. The group will meet
physically in conjunction with the next WPIE meeting (12-13 June), in
