Attached a copy of a message that is being sent to the Board concerning
work that is beginning on the GSNO Improvements.  As you  will note we
have started a planning group together with the staff. This group is going to be doing the high level planning of how we will organize the main work
of the GNSO Improvements Project, and will not be responsible for any
substantive decisions or recommendations about the improvements

Currently Chuck and I as well as several members of the ICANN Policy staff, including Denise, Liz and Rob, are members of this group. This is just the
core of this group. We have invited the Board BGC GNSO Review Working
Group to add a member to this group and need to add more GNSO members.
We want to satisfy three goals simultaneously in adding members to the group;

- insure that a diverse set of perspectives is included in the planning group
- include some participants with relevant organizational experience
- keep the group small.

In the GNSO Improvements Project we will not need to restrict ourselves
to council members, but for this planning committee, I would suggest that
we do choose from among council members and constituency members.
I also think that adding a person from each constituency might be unwieldy and hope that we can limit participation to a few people who can be trusted in this planning task by several constituencies. As you can read in the note
below, we are planing to organize several other Standing Committees and
other work teams and there will be a large number of opportunities for
participation by council members, constituency members, and others in the
ICANN community in the groups making the actual recommendations.

I would like to initiate conversations on the list on the designation of 2-3 other members of this group. I would like to resolve this as soon as possible, with
resolution during our upcoming meeting at the latest if not before.
