Are there any specific recommendations on how to improve the recommendations of 
the Working Group Work Team final report by the ALAC that should be considered 
by the Council. As you know, this process has been going on for so long now, we 
need to deal with specifics rather than position statements at this stage.

We can discuss more next week.

I *think* I understand the rationale behind the specific wording, but I will 
seek clarification to make sure that I am correct.

I believe that the ALAC is supporting the current process, and suggesting that 
the GNSO be even more pro-active, specifically with the ACs which do not 
routinely participate. The ALAC has been active in  such WG over the last 
several years, but the same cannot be said for the other ACs.  History 
indicates that public calls for participation alone are generally not

The current document (Section 2.1.1) states that when there is a Working Group 
a “Call for Volunteers” will be circulated “as widely as possible in 
order to ensure broad representation and participation in the Working 
Group.”  This includes “Distribution of announcement to GNSO Stakeholder 
groups, Constituencies and/or other Supporting Organizations and Advisory 

It sounds as if the ALAC is just affirming their support, but it would be 
helpful to get some clarity.

I'm not sure I understand the concerns regarding the involvement of the
ACs. All stakeholders have been invited/permitted to be involved in GNSO
policy WGs since we've been using them with or without guidelines. Is
the ALAC simply encouraging that to continue, or are there specific
concerns that the guidelines are lacking in that regard?
