Subject: [gnso-improvem-impl-sc] SCI Charter Approved by GNSO Council

Dear SCI Members,

At its meeting today, 31 October 2013, the GNSO Council approved the attached charter of the SCI via Motion 3 listed here: https://community.icann.org/display/gnsocouncilmeetings/Motions+31+October+2013. The approved charter has been posted to the SCI wiki at: https://community.icann.org/display/gnsosci/3.+Charter. 

Please note that the GNSO Council decided not to alter the decision-making process at this time, but reserved the possibility of revisiting the discussion on this issue at another time.  Thus, the decision-making process of the SCI will continue as it appeared in the original charter: "Unless otherwise determined by the SCI members, committee decisions will be made by “full consensus” process as described in the GNSO Working Group Guidelines (see section 3.6)."  A note has been included in the charter that this process is subject to Council consideration.

As there were no volunteers for the position of liaison from the SCI to the Council, the GNSO Council decided to wait to appoint a liaison until after the new Council is seated in Buenos Aires.  However, Wolf-Ulrich Knoben suggested Mikey O'Conner as a possible liaison.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I will send the link to the transcript of the GNSO Council meeting as soon as it is available.

Best regards,


Julie Hedlund, Policy Director
