Re: [council] FW: ALAC Statement on GNSO WG Guidelines

I could guess based on previous discussions, but let me get a reading direct from the ALAC. Alan

What does Alac mean by "even more proactive" Alan?

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 sufficient.

If Alan can speak to this at the Council meeting on the 24th that would be helpful.

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 Committees.�

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

Subject: RE: [council] FW: ALAC Statement on GNSO WG Guidelines

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?
