Personally, I believe no motion should be considered at the meeting
immediately following when it is made. It should almost always wait
until the following one. BUT, if one is going to be considered at the
very next meeting after it is made, the Council should have had at least
14 days to consider and vet it.

Hi Tim,

The GNSO Council meets approximately every 3 weeks. If a 14 day rule is
applied, motions would need to be brought during the one week period
after the last GNSO Council meeting. Would that leave enough time for
dialogue between meetings among councilors and allow for sufficient
consultations with their respective SG/C's?

This is basically 13-14 days. Why not just make it 14 days prior to a
meeting. Then we don't have to worry about changes in the way ICANN
schedules its meetings, and it's simpler to understand.

Would a motion to change that be sufficient, or is more needed?
