Regarding the face to face meeting I'd like to support the proposal for the
weekend 12 -13 July, although I could also make the 11th if that helps. We all
have busy schedules and I'm sure meeting during the normal working week would
always prove problematical for somebody, so this seems a good way forward and
the timing fits well with the time we have available to complete this task.
I'd also like to suggest that we send a joint letter to the GAC expressing a
wish that they engage in such an important process. It would also be helpful to
us to have a neutral and fresh opinion, as well as helping to build a better
relationship for the future. Guess it may also be beneficial if we could
encourage some GAC reps to engage with us at the same time as we send the note.

Subject: [gnso-consensus-wg] GNSO consensus working group for GNSO Council
A new mailing list <gnso-consensus-wg@xxxxxxxxx> (there are no public
archives) has been created for the group instructed by the ICANN Board to
resolve the issue of restructuring the GNSO Council.
* One representative from the current NomCom appointees - Avri Doria,
* One member from each constituency:
Philip Sheppard - CBUC
Steve Metalitz - IPC
Tony Holmes - ISPCPC
NCUC still awaiting name
Jon Nevett - Registrars
Chuck Gomes - Registries
* One member from each liaison-appointing advisory committee (if that
advisory committee so desires)
Alan Greenberg - ALAC (still to be confirmed)
The GAC Chair has advised the ICANN Board that it is unlikely that the GAC
will provide a representative to the working group, but has nevertheless sent a
message to the GAC list to see if there is any interest.
The Board said the group should reach consensus and submit a consensus
recommendation on GNSO Council restructuring back to the Board by no later than
Friday, 25 July 2008. The Board then expects to consider the working group
recommendation as soon as possible, but no later than it's meeting in August.
That meeting is currently scheduled for 28 August 2008.
Please let me know at your earliest convenience dates that would be work for
you for a face to face meeting. Dates that have been suggested so far are 12-13
July (a week-end).
With the USA 4 July holiday weekend, please give an indication of the first
possible date for a teleconference. Wednesday 2 July has been suggested, but
does not work for Tony Holmes and Chuck Gomes.
Thank you very much.
