[council] Role of the GNSO vice chair

Council, now that we have a vice chair should we formally agree an internal 
role for the
position ?
Chuck and Bruce started this discussion a little way back.

Allow me to restart based on Bruce's original.
How do we and the chair and vice-chair feel about this ?

Role of Vice-chair of the GNSO Council
1) Meetings
- work with staff to schedule GNSO related meetings at each major ICANN 
meeting, as well as
help plan any inter-sessional meetings.

(2) Operating planning
- work with staff to develop the budget for GNSO related expenses to feed into 
annual operational plan/budget  e.g travel costs, as well as work with staff to 
plan for
both staff and GNSO volunteer
resources for various projects (task forces, working groups etc).

- identify projects that provide efficiency improvements (e.g website updates, 
new use of
collaboration tools,  document management systems etc.)

- work with staff to maintain a rolling 12 month operational/work plan and 
ensure we don't
over commit projects to the available resources.

(3) Deputise for the chair when the chair is unavailable.
