Dear Ron,


Apologies for a little slow turnaround on this one.  We had a monthly
Council meeting last week so my plate was a little full.


My personal feeling is that we should go for solution 1 suggested below
supplemented by a variation off 2, i.e. that we invite the Chair &/or VC od
the SCI to talk with the Council on specific issues as and when appropriate.

With your permission, I'll send your note to the Council and likely cover it
with my suggestion and then take feedback before making a final decision.


Best wishes,

Dear Jonathan,


Following the recent change of leadership of the Standing Committee on
Improvements Implementation (SCI), with the former Chair being a member of
the GNSO Council, the SCI is now in a situation where neither the Chair or
the Vice-Chair are members of the GNSO Council. At the same time, the SCI is
responsible for reviewing and assessing the effective functioning of
recommendations that came out of the last GNSO review. 


The SCI considers it important to have a direct line of communication with
the GNSO Council as most of the issues under consideration are a result of
GNSO Council requests and SCI recommendations are likely to impact the GNSO
Council operations. As a result, the SCI would like to propose that the GNSO
Council consider appointing a liaison to the SCI. From the SCI's
perspective, such a liaison could be appointed in two different ways: (1) a
'traditional' liaison is appointed by the GNSO Council, i.e. a member of the
GNSO Council is appointed to serve as the liaison to the SCI as described in
the GNSO Working Groups; or (2) the Chair and/or Vice-Chair of the SCI serve
as liaisons to the GNSO Council and are able to participate as observers in
GNSO Council meetings either upon invitation (when issues of relevance are
discussed) or as standing observers. Obviously it is the GNSO Council's
prerogative to decide on the solution that is deemed most appropriate and


We look forward to receiving your feedback in due course.


Kind regards,




Ronald N. Andruff

Chair SCI
