Forwarded from ISPCP Constituency

As a result of the GNSO resolution at http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions/#200904 
the remaining DNSO restricted funds are available for support of other ISPCP 
travelers.  On behalf of the ISPCP constituency, I would like to request that 
$1,347.30 be transferred to the ISPCP general account via a check made out to 
the ISPCP Secretariat.  It is possible to do this through a bank transfer if 
that is more convenient for you.

Otherwise, I hope this simple request is enough to get us started officially!

 GNSO Resolution
 At its meeting of September 25, 2008 the GNSO Council created the Travel 
Drafting Team (TDT) to work on proposals to optimize the allocation and the 
management of Travel Funding for the GNSO Constituencies.
 At a meeting held during the Mexico ICANN meeting in March 2009 between the 
TDT and members of ICANN staff, the TDT requested that all GNSO Constituencies 
receive Funding Slots for each of their elected Councilors at each one of the 
three yearly international ICANN meetings, with the understanding that it would 
then be up to each Constituency to allocate these slots according to their own 
internal processes.
 That request stemmed in part from the recognition of the significant, and ever 
increasing work loads, that GNSO Councilors face. Work which they carry out as 
unpaid volunteers.
 Since that meeting it has been identified that an amount of funds left over 
from the DNSO are available for use should the Council wish to provide 
additional Travel Funding to those GNSO Constituencies that no longer have 
enough credits left for their three slots for the final meeting of the fiscal 
year 2008, in Sydney.
  The funds identified are in the amount of 19,963.79 USD.
 That the DNSO funds be distributed evenly across all six GNSO Constituencies 
in time for the Sydney meeting in June, with the express purpose of providing 
additional Travel Funding for those persons nominated by each Constituency as 
recipients to be of said Travel Support.
