  • Thread-topic: Term of the next GNSO Council chair

I think it makes sense for the new chair to be elected to serve a term until 
the end of the AGM.

Hello All,

The other matter to decide is the term for the GNSO Council chair

The ICANN bylaws allow the Council to appoint a person for up to a year:

"The GNSO Council shall select the GNSO Chair, for a term the GNSO
Council specifies but not longer than one year, by written ballot or by
action at a meeting. Any such selection must have affirmative votes
comprising a majority of the votes of all the members of the GNSO

Over the past couple of years, I have suggested aligning the term of the
Chair to the annual general meeting timing, as per the terms of Council
"the regular term of each GNSO Council member shall begin at the
conclusion of an ICANN annual meeting and shall end at the conclusion of
the second ICANN annual meeting thereafter

So my current term as approved at the Council meeting of 21 Dec 2006,
ends at the end of the ICANN AGM in 2007:

"Bruce Tonkin elected as GNSO Council Chair for the period 21 December
2006 until the end of the ICANN Annual General Meeting in 2007"

So does the Council wish to elect a person to serve the remainder of my
current term from June 2007 to the end of the ICANN Annual General
Meeting in 2007, or some other term?

Comments please.
