[bc-gnso] BC officer election to Council

BC Secretariat secretariat at bizconst.org
Wed Sep 16 08:36:41 UTC 2009

Under the adopted Commercial Stakeholder Group (CSG) charter the CSG has six 
seats on the new Council starting in October in Seoul. It has been agreed 
between the three constituencies in the CSG that each Constituency will 
select two seats until further notice. It has been agreed within Council 
that Council members with terms that are unfinished will remain in place 
until the natural end of their term. This maintains the continuity benefits 
of elections in staggered years. For the BC this means that Mike Rodenbaugh, 
who was elected by the BC for the period October 2008 - October 2010, will 
be one of our Councillors for the next 12 months. Under our existing BC 
Charter we would in any case be holding elections for the seats currently 
held by Philip Sheppard and Zahid Jamil in September.

BC Charter discussion looks like it may take some time and risks us not 
replacing our representative if we wait until discussion has finished.
We anyway have longer to discuss this than the necessary timing of the 
election for Council.
It is not necessary to hold the election under a revised Charter. We just 
need to have a selection mechanism.

Way forward
We therefore intend to hold an election under our existing Charter for  the 
seat presently held by Zahid Jamil for the term October 2009 - October 2011.
To avoid confusion this election will take place shortly after the  current 
election for the remaining nominating committee position.
The third seat currently held by Philip Sheppard will not be continued after 
the end of his term of office.

Zahid Jamil
Mike Rodenbaugh
Philip Sheppard
