Dear SCI members,

As Avri Doria has previously reported, she submitted to the GNSO Council in
March two SCI review requests (attached).  These were discussed during the
Council meeting on 19 March, but action on them was deferred to the GNSO
Council meeting on 16 April.   For reference, here is the link to the
transcript from the 19 March meeting:

The two requests were placed on the Consent Agenda for today's GNSO Council
meeting as follows: (See the agenda at
"Item 3: Consent agenda (5 mins): 3.1 ­ Approval to refer two matters
<http://gnso.icann.org/en/council/drafts>  (first submitted to the Council
on 5 March 2015) to the GNSO's Standing Committee for Improvements
Implementation (SCI). The first
15>  concerning GNSO Council practices for proposing, seconding and
amendment of motions and the second
15>  on clarifying the Operating Procedures regarding the waiver and
resubmission of motions."
As there were no requests to have these items removed from the consent
agenda, the items proceeded to a vote and were adopted.  See the resolutions
at: http://gnso.icann.org/en/council/resolutions. If you wish to review the
transcript of today's Council meeting it will be posted at:
http://gnso.icann.org/en/group-activities/calendar#apr.  The MP3 is
available at: http://audio.icann.org/gnso/gnso-council-16apr15-en.mp3. For
reference concerning the Consent Agenda procedures, the relevant section
from the GNSO Operating Procedures is included below.

Best regards,


Julie Hedlund, Policy Director

--------Excerpt from the GNSO Council Operating Procedures----------

4.9    Consent Agenda
When preparing the meeting agenda, the Council Chair in consultation with
the Council Vice-Chairs determines whether an item belongs on the consent
agenda. All items that are subject to a different voting threshold than a
simple majority vote (see ICANN Bylaws, Article X, section 3-9) or are
subject to absentee voting (see section 4.4 ­ Absentee Voting) are not
eligible for inclusion in the consent agenda. A numbered list of consent
items is included as part of the meeting agenda. The list and supporting
documents are included in the Council agenda in sufficient time to be read
by all Council members prior to the meeting in accordance with section 3.3 ­
Notice of Meetings of these Operating Procedures.
At the beginning of the meeting, the Chair asks members what items they wish
to have removed from the consent agenda and discussed individually. If any
Council member requests that an item be removed from the consent agenda, it
must be removed. Council members may request that an item be removed for any
reason. They may wish, for example, to discuss the item, to query the item,
or to register a vote against the item. If an item is removed from the
consent agenda, it is added to the meeting agenda for that meeting, unless
the Council Chair in consultation with the Council Vice-Chairs determines
When there are no more items to be removed, the Chair reads out the number
of the remaining consent items. Then the Chair calls for a vote.
When preparing the minutes, the full text of (or links to) the resolutions,
reports or recommendations that were adopted as part of the consent agenda
are included. In addition the minutes should include a statement regarding
the composition/threshold that approved the consent agenda.
