> Hi all,
> I wanted to let you know that I'm expecting my first baby in March. As a
> result, I will not be able to travel to Singapore for ICANN 52, and I will be
> taking some time away from work after the baby is born. Mohamed, Patrik,
> and I have discussed ICG chairing responsibilities in light of this and wanted
> to share that plan with you.
> For the Feb 6-7 ICG meeting and ICANN 52:
> * As they did for the September meeting, Patrik and Mohamed will decide
> amongst themselves who will run each session or portion thereof (and we
> can of course continue the practice of sharing that responsibility among all
> the ICG members).
> * I will participate remotely for as much of the meetings as possible and will
> be available by phone/Skype/IM for ad hoc discussion as necessary. Daylight
> hours in Singapore are early-to-late evening hours in California, so this
> should work ok.
> For parental leave time:
> My parental leave will likely start in early-to-mid March (although it could
> start earlier, it's not entirely predictable). My rough plan for leave is outline
> below, but obviously it could change substantially at any time depending on
> how everything goes.
> I plan to take 4 weeks entirely off of work after the baby is born. If some ICG
> emergency requires my attention during that time, Patrik and Mohamed will
> have my contact details and will be able to reach me. During that time they
> will decide amongst themselves who will run teleconferences, make
> consensus calls (if necessary), and make administrative decisions, or they will
> do those things jointly.
> After 4 weeks I will still be at home with the baby but will plan to return to
> my ICG responsibilities. Patrik, Mohamed and I will coordinate if scheduling
> issues come up on my end but my hope is to be able to re-engage with the
> mailing list, phone conferences, and the rest of our work.
> After 12 weeks I will be back to working full-time. I plan to travel to ICANN 53.
> Please feel free to reach out to me on the mailing list or privately if you have
