Subject: [council] Motion: Nomination of GNSO Candidates for SSR2-RT

Councilors –

Attached and copied below, please find a motion for Council consideration 
during our next call on 19 JAN 2017, which presents our slate of candidates for 
the Security & Stability Review Team (SSR2-RT).

As you may recall from our DEC 2016 call, we decided to convene a small group 
comprised of myself, Heather, Donna, Susan and Ed.  This group was tasked to 
evaluate submitted applications for our 3 Primary (guaranteed to be seated) and 
4 Alternate (may be seated based on need & diversity) candidates, and bring 
these recommendations back to the Council.  The attached motion presents our 

Looking forward to discussing this during our next meeting.

Thank you,


Nomination of GNSO Candidates for Second Security, Stability, and Resiliency of 
the DNS (SSR2) Review Team


1.       On 30 June 2016, ICANN launched a call for volunteers seeking 
individuals interested in serving as a Volunteer Review Team Member on the 
SSR2-RT (see https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-3-2016-06-30-en).

2.       Under the new Bylaws, each SO/AC participating in the Specific Review 
may nominate up to 7 members to the review team, for consideration by the SO/AC 
leadership, for a review team of no more than 21 members.  Any SO/AC nominating 
up to 3 individuals are entitled to have those nominees selected as members to 
the review team, so long as the nominees meet the applicable criteria for 
service on the team.

3.       The GNSO Council formed a small team to review the candidates that 
requested GNSO endorsement (see https://community.icann.org/x/xRqsAw) taking 
into account the criteria outlined in the call for volunteers as well as the 
desire to ensure a RT that is balanced for diversity and expertise. The small 
team submitted its findings to the GNSO Council on [date].

4.       The GNSO Council considered the findings of the small team.


1.       The GNSO Council nominates (in alphabetical order): Denise Michel, 
Eric Osterweil, James Gannon as its primary three candidates for the SSR2-RT, 
noting that these candidates under the new ICANN Bylaws are entitled to be 
selected. Furthermore, the GNSO nominates (in alphabetical order): Emily 
Taylor, Howard Eland, Norm Ritchie, Scott McCormick to be considered for 
inclusion in the SSR2-RT by the SO-AC Chairs should additional places be 

2.       Noting the lack of diversity (gender, geographic) of the applicants, 
the GNSO Council encourages Staff to explore ways to encourage gender and 
geographic diversity in applications for future review teams.

3.       The GNSO Council instructs the GNSO Secretariat to communicate 
resolved #1 and #2 to the staff supporting the SSR2-RT.

4.       The GNSO Council instructs the GNSO Secretariat to inform the 
applicants that have received endorsement that the GNSO Council expects that, 
if selected for the SSR2-RT, the applicant will represent the views of the 
entire GNSO community in their work on the SSR2-RT, and provide regular 
feedback as a group on the discussions taking place in the SSR2-RT, as well as 
the positions being taken by GNSO Review Team Members.

5.       The GNSO Council requests staff supporting the SSR2-RT and application 
process to send a response to those applicants who did not receive endorsement 
(if any), thanking them for their interest. The response should also encourage 
them to follow the SSR2-RT work, and participate in Public Comments and 
community discussions.
