Re: [council] Board action on GNSO Restructuring

Dear Denise,

Thank you for the timely notification.

Is there any explanation coming on why the Board's SIC and Policy Staff will be making the changes as opposed to working on these changes with the SGs?

Dear Community Members:

At today's Board meeting, Directors considered the status of Stakeholder Group (SG) formation and acknowledged that the GNSO community has made an effort to comply with the Board's timetable for GNSO restructuring (i.e. seating a new Council in Sydney), that the Board has received proposed SG charters for review, and that the restructuring schedule has slipped past Sydney. The Board approved a resolution that: noted that the proposed SG charters require revisions to ensure equitable participation and representation by new constituencies; directed the Board's Structural Improvements Committee (SIC) and ICANN Staff to propose changes to the SG charters to make them consistent with the Board’s stated objectives; and directed the SIC to post the revised charters, and an explanatory memorandum, for GNSO consultation and public comment.

The resolution will be posted by the Board Secretariat shortly at <http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/ >, but I wanted to alert you to this development ASAP. Additional information will be posted/distributed as soon as it's available.
