[council] RE: Amended Motion to Approve Plan for Bicameral Council Seat Transition

Chuck et al,

A few quick questions and potentially some follow up on this (and sorry if I am 
a little behind on this).

Is there rationale for electing Vice-Chairs prior to the Chair?

Would the election of a Vice-Chair, assuming the election is held before the 
election for Chair, exclude a candidate from running for Chair?

Depending on your answers I may propose that the elections be held in reverse 
as this seems, on the surface at least, to be a little unworkable and 
potentially problematic. I will await your response prior to commenting further.

Subject: [council] Amended Motion to Approve Plan for Bicameral Council Seat 
Importance: High

Attached you will find a clean and a redline version of a revised motion to 
approve the Plan for Bicameral Council Seat Transition (i.e., an implementation 
plan for the new bicameral Council).  Note that I submitted the original motion 
two days ago but Avri, Staff and I discovered some changes that were needed 
after consultation with the GC office and in our own discussions.  The clean 
version is also posted on the wiki at 

This motion is on our agenda for our meeting next week on 24 September 2009 so 
please forward it to your respective groups for review and comment as soon as 
possible for their review and comment.

In the redline version you will see that quite a few changes were made, 
although the overall essence of the plan is very similar to what it was; quite 
a few needed details were added.

The clean version is probably the easiest to use but those of you who already 
reviewed the original motion may find it helpful to refer to the redline 
version so that you can easily see the changes that were made.  Also, the 
redline version contains comments that were exchanged by Avri, ICANN Staff and 
I in the process; they hopefully will provide the rationale for the amendments 
made.  If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask.

As before, amendment suggestions are welcome.

Chuck Gomes
