Thank you, Susan.
And while the motion doesn’t note this, I think everyone all of us on Council
owe you and Ed our gratitude & appreciation for your work on this effort, and
for developing the straw-man of our Standing Selection Process.
Many thanks to you both.

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

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.

requested GNSO endorsement (see

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
