[council] Fwd: GNSO NCA selection process

Please see below the response from the NomCom Chair.

The intent of the NomCom appears to be the selection of voting or non-voting NCAs, but not their assignments. This NomCom therefore intends to select a non-voting NCA as this is the only seat that is rotating this year. It will therefore be once again up to the Council, and both houses, to agree voting NCA assignments.

I would point out that this runs contrary to my understanding of what the NomCom told us after last year's assignments and that I had expected them to assign all three NCAs every year from now on, regardless of whether they were just renewed or already serving.

I am happy to chase this up with the NomCom chair if the Council had the same understanding as me and wishes me to.

> Dear Stephane
> The general understanding of the NomComm Committee  2012, and our selection process followed such understanding, was that this year the NomComm will selected, and we did so, a Non-voting member to seat at GNSO Council.
>  Regarding the time, as soon as the internal ICANN´s  process with the selected candidates will finish,  the  nominee to take seat at GNSO COUNCIL  as a non – voting member will be announced. We expect to have the process finished at the end of August.
> The selected person have already been informed about the nomination and formally accepted the position.
>  As we had last year, 2013 will select two voting members for the GNSO Council. It was the understanding of the committee last year that NOMCOMM would not choose which seat the selected candidates would take, only that they were voting seats.
> Hope  these information are satisfactory for the Council and I remain at your disposition for any other additional information you need.
