Dear Councillors,
I am submitting the following motion to be considered during our next
meeting in Dakar.
Best regards


Made by: Olga Cavalli
Seconded by:

WHEREAS, in October 2008, the GNSO Council established a framework for
implementing the various GNSO Improvements
identified and
approved by the ICANN Board of Directors on 26 June 2008;

WHEREAS, that framework included the formation, in January 2009, of two
Steering Committees, the Operations Steering Committee (OSC) and the Policy
Process Steering Committee (PPSC), to charter and coordinate the efforts of
five community work teams in developing specific recommendations to
implement the improvements;

WHEREAS, the OSC established three work teams, including the Constituency
and Stakeholder Group Operations Work Team, which were chartered to focus on
specific operational areas addressed in the Board Governance Committee (BGC)
Report recommendations;

WHEREAS, one of the recommendations in BGC Report was to develop and
implement a targeted outreach program to explore the formation of new
constituency groups;

(CSG-WT) was tasked with developing the recommendations on a global outreach
program and submitted the document to the OSC for consideration on 21
January 2011;

document “Recommendations to Develop a Global Outreach Program to Broaden
Participation in the GNSO

document and directed staff to submit the document for 45 days in the ICANN
Public Comment Forum;

WHEREAS, at its meeting on 19 May 2011 the GNSO Council determined that as
there were no public comments that required changes to the document the work
of the OSC with respect to the global outreach program recommendations was
complete and directed staff to seek volunteers to form a Outreach Task Force
Charter Drafting Team (OTF DT);

WHEREAS, an OTF DT was formed and it drafted a Charter that it presented to
the GNSO Council Chair on 08 September 2011;

WHEREAS, the GNSO Council Chair sent the Draft Charter to the GNSO Council
and asked Councilors to share the document with their respective groups and
to provide comments by 10 October 2011;

revised Draft Charter [insert link] based on comments it received;
