AW: [council] Draft message to the Board

I understand the major concern with the process that ALAC (staff) did provide the report to the board is - and that's my concern as well - that the board may be mislead in assuming they could act upon.
Since this is not the case our message should clearly point it out by saying: "This report - not yet approved by both chartering organizations (ALAC and GNSO) - is for information only and not intended to initiate any board action."
I think such or a similar statement should be supported by ALAC, too.

Kind regards

	Betreff: [council] Draft message to the Board

	In response to Adrian's suggestion, which so far has met with unanimous support, I have drafted this short email to the Board. Please let me have your thoughts and any suggested edits. Rafik, as JAS WG co-chair and Council liaison, I think it is crucial that we have your input before sending any message to the Board.



	Dear Peter, 

	On May 10, the Board was sent the Joint SO/AC New gTLD Applicant Support Working Group ( JAS WG)'s Second Milestone Report by ALAC. We understand that this report has not yet been approved by ALAC.
	The GNSO Council wishes to highlight the fact that it has not approved this report yet either. In fact, the Council has only just received it. The report was sent to us by the co-chairs of the JAS working group on May 9, 2011.
	As one of the two chartering organisations of the JAS WG, the GNSO is keen to ensure that the Board understands the nature of the report that it has been sent, and the circumstances under which it received it.
	I would be grateful therefore, if you could convey the GNSO Council's message to the Board.
	Stéphane Van Gelder
	GNSO Council Chair
