I'm happy to propose a motion, which I include below for the drafting team's
consideration. Please be kind guys, it's my first one :-) Comments and
constructive criticism welcome.
If everyone's OK with the motion as-is, I would need the date the Travel DT
was created. Does anyone have that?
On XX the GNSO Travel Drafting Team (TDT) was set-up to work on proposals to
optimize the allocation and the management of Travel Funding for the GNSO
At a meeting held during the Mexico ICANN meeting in March 2009 between the
TDT and members of ICANN staff, the TDT requested that all GNSO
Constituencies receive Funding Slots for each of their elected Councillors
at each one of the three yearly international ICANN meetings, with the
understanding that it would then be up to each Constituency to allocate
these slots according to their own internal processes.
That request stemmed in part from the recognition of the significant, and
ever increasing work loads, that GNSO Councillors face. Work which they
carry out as unpaid volunteers.
Since that meeting it has been identified that an amount of funds left over
from the DNSO are available for use should the Council wish to provide
additional Travel Funding to those GNSO Constituencies that no longer have
enough credits left for their three slots for the final meeting of the
fiscal year 2008, in Sydney.
The funds identified are in the amount of 19,963.79 USD.
That the DNSO funds be distributed evenly across all six GNSO Constituencies
in time for the Sydney meeting in June, with the express purpose of
providing additional Travel Funding for those persons nominated by each
Constituency as recipients to be of said Travel Support.
