Yes, you are correct, each Chartering Organization appoints a minimum of two
and a maximum of five members to the CCWG. For the recent transition related
CCWGs, as far as I recall, the GNSO did appoint 5 members – one from each SG
and a GNSO appointed Co-Chair. It is up to the GNSO Council to decide whether
you want to follow the same approach here, whether you want to keep the number
of appointed members to 4, whether you have an additional member from the
nominating committee appointees or a SG or some other alternative. Note that
there is no obligation for the GNSO appointed chair to be a member (as noted
below, appointed members have certain obligations and responsibilities in
relation to their chartering organizations compared to participants).

I’m a little confused about the expectations for membership.
If each SG is being requested to identify (1) member, and each chartering
organization can appoint up to 5 members, how does that work for the GNSO?
Does it mean the following”
RySG to appoint 1 member
RrSG to appoint 1 member
NCSG to appoint 1 member
CSG to appoint 1 member
+ 1 more from any of the SGs?

And to clarify, in addition to up to 5 appointed members per chartering
organization, the CCWG will also be open to anyone interested in the capacity
of participant or observer. To this end, a call for volunteers is expected to
go out soon.

Subject: [council] Reminder - each SG to identify one member for new gTLD
Auction Proceeds CCWG
As a reminder, please note that each Stakeholder Group has been requested to
identify one (1) member for the new gTLD Auction Proceeds CCWG by 5 December.
Per the charter, best efforts should be made to ensure that members:
1. Have sufficient and appropriate motivation (and ideally expertise) to
participate in the substance of the work of the CCWG. Appropriate experience
could, for example, include experience with allocation and final disbursement
2. Commit to actively participate in the activities of the CCWG on an
on-going and long-term basis;
3. Solicit and communicate (where appropriate) the views and concerns of
individuals in the organization that appoints them;
4. Commit to abide to the charter when participating in the CCWG;
5. Understand the needs of the Internet communities that ICANN serves
(standards, domains and numbers);
6. Understand the broader ecosystem (the Internet Community) in which ICANN
operates and the needs of those working on other aspects of the Internet
industry, including those not yet connected.
The Charter furthermore notes in relation to Chartering Organization appointed
In addition to the role that Chartering Organization appointed members have in
relation to potential consensus calls or decisions (see below), they are
expected to serve as a liaison between their respective Chartering Organization
and the CCWG. Members must, if and when necessary, ensure that the Chartering
Organizations are kept up to date on the progress and deliberations of the CCWG
as well as sharing any input from the Chartering Organization with the CCWG.
Chartering Organizations are encouraged as part of the CCWG member selection
process, to take into account how appointed members can better contribute from
a diversity of viewpoints. This can be achieved by looking at the cultural,
geographic, industry, knowledge and expertise diversity as well as gender
balance of Chartering Organizations appointed members.
Chartering Organizations are encouraged to use open and inclusive processes
when selecting their members for a CCWG and this should include reasonable
efforts to ensure that each of ICANN’s five regions is represented.
As noted in the resolution from ICANN57, ‘The GNSO Council expects to select a
GNSO Co-Chair for the CCWG from the slate of GNSO appointed members to the CCWG
during its meeting on 15 December 2016’.
