Thanks for the timely feedback Denise.  I note that the Board recognized
that "the restructuring schedule has slipped past Sydney" but it is very
important for the GNSO to have a specific decision regarding the June
target date for Council restructuring.  Was any clear decision made in
this regard?

        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.
        Denise Michel
