[bc-gnso] CSG charter and knock-on effects to BC charter

With all due respect to the effort that was invested in revising the BC
Charter, many of us that were in attendance in Seoul when the vote was taken
to finalize it were in strong disagreement with significant parts of it.
Now whether the BC wants to change it or not, the current charter needs to
be harmonized with other constituencies to arrive at a CSG charter that
works for all.  So the work needs to be done (notwithstanding some members
not wanting to see any revision) and I therefore support this work.


Regarding the BC meeting in Washington, I strongly encourage all members to
make an effort to attend.  As has been noted, other constituencies meet
outside of ICANN meetings and the BC should be no exception.  We, as a
constituency, have a lot to do in order to build our organization to meet
the needs of a growing and developing ICANN and DNS.  As such, we should be
trying to get together in face-to-face meetings more often, but that is not
possible for all of the reasons we can imagine.


In addition, I understand that our ExComm has put together a strong program
with speakers that have relevance to our constituency and our constituency's
work, so rather than disparage the need for a meeting I suggest that our
GNSO representatives promote attendance either in-person or via remote hook
up.  This meeting will have great import to the role we play within ICANN,
in my view, and I look forward to seeing/hearing as many of my fellow
members on October 12th as possible.


Kind regards,

I agree with Philip.  We are a policy development organization, and should
be spending as little time as possible on administrative items like Charter
review.  We already spent a lot of precious time on that upon the GNSO
Restructure over the last couple years.  Is more really necessary now?  


Does this really call for a face-to-face meeting of Members, when we know
only a few members outside of Washington DC can realistically attend?

thanks for your efforts on leading this.

In advance of the October 12 meeting would you explain now the proposed CSG
charter changes please?

And also explain what it is in the BC charter that must change in light of
these CSG updates.


In the previous BC charter debate we had tried to build in wording
explicitly to AVOID the need to revisit the BC charter.

Given the months of debate we had on the current BC charter we should be
certain that additional changes really are needed.


Many thanks
