Happy New Year fellow Council members;

The staff recommendations in the note on proxy voting seem sound and consistent with former
Names Council practice when we engaged in proxy voting - whether we were supposed to or not.
On the item c - participation, I believe current practice whereby we have often extensively
talked over an issue before a vote, covers this point.
All we need now is to set out the recommendations into a short set of rules and add in a few
practicalities such as open proxy and a proxy with direction to vote in a certain way, and
we are done.

I hope we can move forward on this with due haste.
