Dear GNSO Council:
We have received some questions about travel support for Seoul for GNSO members. I thought it might help to have the GNSO Council see a general response so that you won't have to take up valuable Council time on this subject.
GNSO currently has 23 travel support slots for each ICANN meeting. (Note: 1 slot includes airfare and Lodging/PerDiem and can be split between two members). My understanding is that the GNSO delegates to each constituency the decision for assigning these slots.
Since the GNSO is transitioning to a new Council in Seoul, some constituencies may feel a need to request an exception to the posted Travel Guidelines and request additional support. I recommend that the leader/s of the constituency group send me a specific request indicating the reason for the request, travelor's name, amount of support (ie half or full), etc.
If the requests are modest, we'll figure out a way to fund it out of FY10's adopted budget. If the requests are not modest, we'll circle back with the GNSO Council on possible solutions.
