Dear all,
In line with our earlier comments regarding Stress Test 18 (here and in the GAC), we support the proposed amendments to the Bylaws for the same reasons as stated below by Alice.

Dear  Cheryl, Steve and all

I would like to share our views on stress test 18 in anticipation of our discussions next week regarding the same.
We consider stress Test 18 necessary and appropriate. We support proposed amendment to the bylaw and believe they do not interfere with the GAC's working methods.
We agree that the proposed amendments would protect and strengthen GAC's consensus decision making, while improving accountability by mitigating against capture or influence by any one stakeholder group.

The board currently responds to, and provides explanations to GAC advice.  GAC operating principles provide for full range of views to be presented in cases where there is no consensus advice and should therefore not trigger the by laws provisions.

Best regards
Alice Munyua

Dear all

When we discussed this document at WP1 last week, there was a general view that this was worth doing and there were no objections raised. We did think it needed to be discussed in the whole CCWG as it overlaps the work of WP1 and 2.

My apologies for being slow to communicate this to the whole CCWG.

I await the co-chairs' advice about when we will schedule that in the agenda.

While in Istanbul, the stress test WP had hoped to discuss appropriate responses to stress test 18, regarding GAC advice that might no longer be supported by consensus.

We didn't get to this in Istanbul, so I drafted a summary of previous discussions of ST 18, and a proposed a way forward (page 5).   It's now for WP1 and WP2 to  discuss mechanisms/powers to respond to the stress test.

I ran this draft by the CCWG co-chairs, who advised several key edits and agreed this was an issue we need to address, despite the political sensitivities.

I cannot join the WP1 call on 1-April, but  hope this document is sufficient for you to consider the proposed bylaws change.
