Subject: [council] Proxy voting
Proxy voting is not allowed under the current by laws.
A request to the Board amend the bylaws is possible.
Council agreed to await the publication of the next GNSO review report
There is not a word on proxy voting in the October 15 report from the
Council request staff to write a short options paper on conditions for
proxy voting (eg who can hold the proxy, how many proxies, notification
of proxy, withdrawal of proxy etc).
Staff can consider the old DNSO proxy voting guidelines as a starting
point. (They worked well and were not abused.)
Council discusses the options and then instructs staff to draft a
resolution to request of Board the preferred option.
