Hello All,
We have been asked to nominate a person to represent the GNSO on the Programme Committee for the ICANN meeting in Vancouver (see email below).   I am pleased to see that the ICANN staff have adopted our suggestion to form a program committee.
I recommend that the GNSO appoint the GNSO Secretariat (Glen De Saint Géry) as our representative on the committee.

Glen has a good understanding of the requirements of each GNSO Constituency, as well as the GNSO Council meetings and task force meetings.  As a Council we can identify the meetings that we wish to have in Vancouver, and the constraints (ie identify which meetings should be available for the whole ICANN community to attend, which should allow all members of the GNSO to attend, and which can be held in parallel).   I can develop a simple spreadsheet of GNSO meetings and constraints as a starting point, and the GNSO Council members can provide input to that spreadsheet of requirements.

Subject: ICANN Meetings - Establishment of Program Committee

In order to facilitate better coordination of events scheduled to take place at ICANN Board Meetings, a program committee is being assembled from the various supporting organizations and advisory committees to assist me in the preparation of the schedule.  This group will have regularly scheduled conference calls and a mailing list to better encourage coordinated discussion.  I would like to hold our first conference call during the week of August 22. I  would ask that you nominate someone to represent your group on the program committee.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you.
