endorsing what Janis has said; seems strange that the Board Chair and the GAC can, but the SO and other AC chairs cant...

I think its a question for each SO to determine, observing usual conflict of interest rules and the common sense which you and others bring to making these things work.

	I can speak for myself only: There have been comments that SO/AC chairs should abstain from presenting their candidatures to the RTs.
	There isn’t any formal provision which would prevent chairs to be candidates. Especially, when the Chair of the GAC is a member of the RT ex officio.
	In order to ensure equal treatment of all Chairs, I am seriously considering to nominate somebody to represent me in the RT. This is, of course, subject of sufficient number and quality of governmental candidates for the RTs.
	Best regards

	The following question was raised in the GNSO Council meeting today regarding your final selection of AoC A&T Review Team members:  Is there any anticipation that leaders in an SO or AC (councilors, chairs, etc.) would be eliminated from consideration for the RT?  I stated that I was unaware of any restrictions like this, but said I would ask the two of you.
	For your information, there are differences of opinion on this issue in the GNSO. 
	BTW, thanks for the extension of time.
	Chuck Gomes
