 GNSO Improvements – Stakeholder Group Charters and Draft Bylaws Amendments

Whereas, the Board determined at its May 2009 meeting that the proposed 
charters for four new GNSO Stakeholder Groups require revisions to ensure 
equitable participation and representation by new constituencies.

Whereas, the Structural Improvements Committee (SIC) has made revisions to the 
various charter documents and shared them with proponents of each Stakeholder 

Resolved (2009.06.26.11), the Board directs the SIC to continue working with 
the community and Stakeholder Group proponents to (a) ensure that the proposed 
Stakeholder Group Charters are appropriately revised to meet the Board's vision 
for the GNSO improvements and restructuring initiative, and (b) ensure that the 
Board will have four Stakeholder Group Charters ready for Board action at its 
July 2009 meeting.

Resolved (2009.06.26.12), that in recognition of the additional time required 
to engage with the community on new Stakeholder Group Charters, the Board 
hereby postpones the seating of the new GNSO Council until the ICANN meeting in 
Seoul, South Korea in October 2009. 

Resolved (2009.06.26.13), in order to ensure that this new goal can be 
achieved, ICANN Staff is directed to post for public comment draft Bylaws 
amendments regarding restructuring that have been developed by the GNSO 
community so that the Board can take action on them at its July meeting.

3. GNSO Improvements – Proposed GNSO Constituency Applications

Whereas, the Board has received petitions for the formation of four new GNSO 
Constituencies, and these submissions are the first formal requests for new 
constituencies in nearly a decade.

Whereas, public comment forums for three of these proposals for new GNSO 
constituencies have concluded and a fourth forum is ongoing.

Whereas, the Board would like to expeditiously decide on the pending petitions.

Whereas, the Board is pleased with the response of the community in organizing 
these four prospective new Constituencies and in completing the various 
notifications, petitions, and charter documents designed to formally seek Board 
recognition and approval. 

Resolved (2009.06.26.14), the Board directs the Structural Improvements 
Committee and the ICANN Staff to continue with due diligence efforts, working 
with the Constituency proponents to (a) clarify certain organizational, 
membership and process issues raised by the community, (b) evaluate whether the 
proposals meet the Bylaws criteria for new GNSO Constituencies, and (c) make 
recommendations to the Board with on appropriate actions regarding the proposed 
Constituencies as soon as practicable.
