In my opinion, it would be great if we could get one representative from
the commercial side of the house (e.g., cross constituency) and one from
the non-commercial side (NCUC, At-Large, NomCom rep).  I think I can
cover the Registry/Registrar side for this high level effort only but if
there is strong interest by someone from the registrars, that would be

Subject: [council] "Improvements" Planning Efforts


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

- insure that a diverse set of perspectives is included in the planning
- 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.
