Thanks, Bruce. 

I do plan to be on the call, however, in the event of a disruption of
connectivity, I give a proxy to Grant, and then to Philip. I will give
instruction separately to my proxies regarding votes.

Subject: [council] Reminder regarding proxy voting

Hello All,

Just a reminder that if you cannot make the next Council teleconference,
you should advise the Secretariat (and preferably post to the public
list) of who you are appointing as a proxy.

For procedural issues that arise during the meeting it would be
appropriate to instruct your proxy to vote as they see fit.

For policy related issues, a Council member should instruct their proxy
on how they wish to vote.
For all policy related issues, papers will be presented to Council at
least 7 days prior to a meeting.

Note that on all policy issues, Council members should vote on the basis
of what they believe to be in the best interests of ICANN (and hence the
Internet's addressing systems) as a whole, using their knowledge of
issues related to their participation in a GNSO constituency or
particular expertise, as well as using the reports and other information
presented to the Council to assist Council members in making a decision.
