[council] FW: Replacement for Willie Currie on the ATRT

Please note the following email string regarding the AoC A&T RT.  As you
are aware, the GNSO endorsed Willie Currie for this RT as selected by
the NCSG.  Unfortunately, Willie had to withdraw from the RT because he
accepted a government position.  As you can see below, the NCSG has
requested that " Carlos Affonso Pereira de Souza be installed into the
ATRT as a replacement for Willie" and Peter Dengate Thrush requests that
the GNSO endorse Carlos.

To facilitate this happening as soon as possible, I would like to ask if
any Councilors object to endorsing Carlos as Willie's replacement.  If
so, please communicate your objection not later than Wednesday, 6
October, otherwise I will assume that the GNSO endorses Willie.  As
always, I encourage each of you to consult with your respective
organizations as appropriate.

Thanks for your prompt consideration of this.


PS - Please note a correction from Avri.  The following sentence should
say Carlos and not Willie: " Willie was a GNSO Council member for the
NCUC in the past."

Dear Avri
The formalities appear to be that Heather and I need to consider this
nomination and if appropriate make the appointment.
The Icann site is down, precluding my checking the AoC terms, but a
precursor (from memory) is that a nominee need to be endorsed by the SO
forwarding them.

Assuming that can be processed, I see no reason why I wouldn't appoint
Carlos as soon as that is confirned.

understands the requirements of the task he is signing up for.  As I
understand it, they have further conversations planned.
