Rob kindly reminded me that the latest extensions of the PPSC and OSC
end in Cartagena.  Because both SC's and some of their WTs are still
working, I am submitting this motion to extend their charters further.

Whereas in October 2008, the GNSO Council established a framework for
implementing the various GNSO Improvements identified and approved by
the ICANN Board of Directors (see - GNSO Council Improvements
Implementation Plan)

Whereas that framework included the formation of two Steering Committees
- the Operations Steering Committee and the Policy Process Steering
Committee - to charter and coordinate the efforts of five community work
teams designed to develop specific recommendations to implement specific
aspects of the improvements;

Whereas the Council intended the charters of the committees (and their
attendant work teams) to be temporary and not to extend beyond the 2009
annual ICANN meeting without specific action by the Council;

Whereas the Council has now twice extended the terms of those committees
to allow the GNSO community implementation recommendations work to
continue (see -
http://gnso.icann.org/meetings/minutes-council-24sep09.htm and

Whereas the Council acknowledges the hard work of those work teams and
notes that those committees and their teams are diligently continuing
their work;

RESOLVED, The Council extends the terms of the Operations Steering
Committee and the Policy Process Steering Committee and their respective
work teams as necessary through the San Francisco ICANN public meeting
in March 2011. The Council directs each steering committee and
applicable work team chair to identify the specific targets and
benchmarks for their work and to share that information with the Council
by 19 January 2011.
