Subject: [gnso-review-dt] GNSO Review Updates and Request for Input

Dear All,
Westlake team would appreciate your recommendations of individuals for them to 
speak to in order to accomplish the following objectives.  Please submit your 
suggestions by responding to this email by EOB Monday 29 September.

-   Gain understanding of how the Working Group model is working, as compared 
to prior model.
[Chuck Gomes] The following in my recollection have been involved in policy 
development groups before and after the current model was implemented: Greg 
Shatan (IPC), Avri Doria (NGPC), James Bladel (RrSG), Alan Greenberg (ALAC), J. 
Scott Evans (BC), Cheryl Langdon-Orr (ALAC), Jeff Neuman (RySG), David Maher 

-   Gain perspectives from groups that are typically under-represented 
(geography, etc.).
[Chuck Gomes] Edmon Chung (RySG) from Asia; Amr Elsadr (NCSG) from the Middle 
East; Olevie Kouami (NPOC) from Africa; Lanre Ajayi (former NomCom appointee to 
the GNSO Council) from Africa.

-   Gain perspectives from individuals that are relative "newcomers".

[Chuck Gomes] Jonathan Frost (RySG), Michael Graham (IPC), Olevie Kouami 
(NPOC), Stephanie Perrin (NCUC), Nic Steinbach (RySG).

-   Gain insights on how previous review's recommendations have been 
[Chuck Gomes] Bruce Tonkin (ICANN Board) chaired most of the new gTLD PDP WG 
and has been on the Board during the many years of implementation work; Avri 
Doria (NCSG) chaired the last few months of the new gTLD PDP WG and has 
remained active for all of the implementation work; Jeff Neuman (RySG) chaired 
and participated in a lot of WGs that have been operationalized.

[Chuck Gomes] In addition to the above I would also strongly recommend that the 
following be interviewed:  Thomas Rickert (NomCom appointee to the Council) 
chaired the IGO-INGO WG; Mikey O'Connor chaired lots of working groups and is 
no longer active in the community so he would bring a unique perspective.

The team is assembling a list of potential interview candidates from 360 
Assessment responders as well as other research, to ensure that they collect 
representative, diverse and fulsome information within the limited time 
available.  Please note that Westlake has finite resources for the interviews,  
and not every suggested individual may end up being interviewed.  Westlake will 
provide a list of interviewees and the reason for their selection, as part of 
their report.
