Re: [council] Board action on GNSO Restructuring
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.
