[gnso-improvem-impl-sc] Waivers/Exceptions to GNSO Operating Procedures: Revised Draft

I should probably be more specific about the reason for that statement - it is really aimed at the "resubmission of a motion" rule.  I want to be clear that a late motion that doesn't get through this process does not have a "strike" against it in the resubmission of a motion rule.

Thanks, Greg. I'm still not clear to why it would say 'For the avoidance of doubt, if the requirements above are not met, the motion shall not be considered "submitted"? Why can't it be considered submitted, but just not eligible to be considered for a vote at the meeting? The current practice is also that if a motion is submitted after the deadline it may get discussed, just not voted on during the meeting, but there is no need to resubmit it for the next meeting as it is already considered submitted and automatically carried over. Maybe I'm missing something?

Best regards,

Following up on our last meeting, I attach a revised version of the amendment to the Operating Procedures dealing with "late" submission of a motion, with my revisions marked in "track changes."

I look forward to your comments.

Best regards,
