I agree with you that Vanda's response is counter to the previous

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.
Best regards

Dear Vanda,
As Chair of the GNSO Council, I am writing to you in your capacity as
Chair of the NomCom.
You will recall that last year, the NomCom informed us that on on top of
selecting the candidates themselves, the NomCom would now be selecting
which NCA is seated where on the GNSO Council.
The Council wishes to confirm what your plans are in this regard as we
are now in the final preparations for our upcoming Council leadership
elections at the 2012 AGM.
Could you please let me know what recommendations or assignments you
plan to make with regards to the GNSO Council NCAs this year, and when
you plan to confirm these to the Council?
