Re: [alac] Plans as Board liaison
Roberto Gaetano ha scritto:
Participation of Liaisons to committees was not in the initial plan, but has been debated in the Board in the last year. My argument is that since we are always short of resources, why do we waste the opportunity of having Liaisons contributing, if they have time to spare. Expect something to happen there in the first half of the year. Anyway, as Chair of the Board Governance Committee I will put this item on the agenda soon.
I would also suggest that there is a difference between "participation" - i.e. being a full member of the Board Committee, with voting rights etc - "liaising" - i.e. being a full member of the Board Committee, except not having a vote when it comes to voting (which is what the ALAC has now in, say, GNSO TFs) - and "observation" - i.e. being subscribed to the lists in read-only mode, just to watch what goes on and be prepared.
Perhaps, even in case where "participation" is not accepted, one of the other two modes could be adopted.
