Restructure Drafting Team:

Staff wants to clarify its understanding regarding the Council seat issue in 
the Bylaws.  The original intent in the language was to MOVE seats
(unfilled) from Constituencies to Stakeholder Groups; therefore, the three 
seats that were assigned to NCUC are (a) increased by 3 and (b) transferred in 
whole to the NCSG.  The NCUC, as a Constituency, does not keep any of the seats 
previously assigned in the Bylaws.  That was one of the provisions that the 
Council, et al., wanted to ensure, that is, no Constituency is guaranteed a 
Council seat which, Staff presumes, applies to existing Cs as well as new 

For transitioning purposes and to ensure continuity in the GNSO Council, Staff 
had recommended that Councilors whose terms do not expire in 2009 (planned new 
Council implementation) should be permitted to continue to 2010 and serve their 
2nd year.  For the NCUC, our records indicate that two Councilors would satisfy 
that condition; thus, the NCSG would need to elect/appoint four new Councilors, 
which could come from any of the Cs that the Board approves to be part of the 
new NCSG (TBD).

We hope this clarification helps in the drafting effort.
