Hi Stephane,

Apologies for the late response – your email seems to have landed in my Junk 
What I put in my email is just background information for your convenience and 
consideration. The decision whether to replace Kim or not is at the GNSO's 


Very best regards

Copying the Council for their info.

Help me understand here Alice.

Are you saying that because the team is close to completing it's work, you do 
not feel it is necessary for the GNSO to go through the process of replacing

Dear Stephane,
Dear Konstantinos,

This is to formally inform you that GNSO - NCSG candidate, Kim Von Arx, had 
decided to resign from the WHOIS Policy Review Team due to professional 
workload reasons . Below you will find the announcement he sent to the public 
email list copying ICANN consituency travel and Konstantinos.

Note that Kim is the designated penholder of a section on ccTLDs. In light of 
this, Konstantinos has kindly requested that Kim complete his task.

As Kim was appointed to the Team as representative of your supporting 
organization, the GNSO is more than welcome to fill in this position by putting 
forward candidates for Rod Beckstrom and Heather Dryden's consideration. As you 
know, this means that an internal call for Applicants would need to be launched 
followed by an endorsement process. Given that this is quite a lengthy process, 
we would like to provide you with an overview of where the Team stands in terms 
of deliverables:
During the Marina del Rey face-to-face meeting held on 20-21 September, the 
WHOIS Review Team Members decided that they would keep 30 November 2011 as 
their completion date to submit their draft final report and that the final 
step to gather feedback would be the Costa Rica meeting at the end of which 
they would issue their final recommendations.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have questions or concerns.


Very best regards

Please note that I regret to inform you that I have to cancel the upcoming 
ICANN trip.  I simply do not have the time to leave work and my litigation 
issues for a week.

I apologize for this and apologize for not having been able to provide all of 
the time required in the last few weeks.  I really was hoping that things would 
be improving, but in order to be fair to everyone, I believe it is best for me 
to resign at this stage.

I have cc-ed Kontantinos on this correspondence and maybe he can quickly assign 
a new person to this team.  I understand that Milton has quite a bit of 
experience in that field as well. Regardless, I believe that Kathy can fully 
represent both sides of the coin, i.e, the registry community as well as the 
non-commercial constituency.

I enjoyed working with all of you and hope to be crossing paths again in the 
near future.  Again, my sincerest apologies, but my life is currently quite 
busy and very time consuming.

Best wishes,
