RE: [council] Reminder: Re:  NCA input to House placement
I'm ready for the discussion and ideas sharing if this is needed
and gNSO Council Houses and/or SGs representatives requires more
details. Ref. to your message dated 29th of Sept.:
In terms of the first point Glen is currently working with Andrey
to get the required SOI completed (done).
In terms of the second point, we have recorded the output of the
NCAs and make the following recommendations as input to further
Contracted Parties House - Andrey
Non contracted Parties House - Terry
Independent non-voting - Olga
