Good thinking.  Sounds like a productive way forward to me.

Once again on the same page as Wolf. What I was suggesting was that we go
through the process during the weekend sessions in Toronto so that everyone
is familiar with it.


Don't forget we will have a spate of incoming Councillors in Toronto, on top
of those Councillors already serving but who were not yet on the Council
when we last used this process. So I think it would be useful to go over it
and make sure we have a chance to discuss any issues or answer any


Marika, perhaps a presentation from you on the process to introduce this

No Bill, that wasn't my intention.

If we have an agreed process - and from Marika's hint I guess there is one -
then we should just look at it if it fits for this round and then go ahead.

Nothing to reinvent!


Best regards

Stéphane, are you suggesting we should not follow the procedure we agreed
for the first ATRT?  We spent a hell of a lot of cycles on that and came by
attrition to what seemed like the only model that was politically acceptable
to all four SGs.  What would be the case for reinventing it, are there
problems with it, and solutions you think would be more acceptable to all
than what we've done?

This process needs to be done right. Wolf, can we pick this up as a lead
topic for the weekend brainstorming session, or give it a topic of its own?

I think this process has to be carefully thought about on council level. I
remember longlasting discussions during the selection of ATRT 1 members. We
should clearly know how many GNSO nominees shall be admitted.

It could be an item for the weekend sessions.


Best regards

Councillors, FYI. 


This will need to be picked up by the new Leadership team post Toronto.

Dear SO/AC Chairs,


As prescribed by the Affirmation of Commitments (AoC), ICANN is to organize
a review of its accountability and transparency commitments no less
frequently than every three years. For full information, please refer to
section 9.1 of the Affirmation of Commitments


In terms of Review Team composition, the AoC stipulates that: The review
will be performed by volunteer community members [
], and will include the
following (or their designated nominees): the Chair of the GAC, the Chair of
the Board of ICANN, the Assistant Secretary for Communications and
Information of the DOC, representatives of the relevant ICANN Advisory
Committees and Supporting Organizations and independent experts. Composition
of the review team will be agreed jointly by the Selectors: the Chair of the
GAC (in consultation with GAC members) and the Chair of the Board of ICANN.


The first ATRT was launched in early 2010 and delivered its final report on
31 December 2010. For further information, refer to:


Please note that in accordance with the AoC timeframe, the release of the
Call for Applicants for the second Accountability & Transparency Review Team
(ATRT 2) is imminent. 


The Call for Applicants invites interested individuals to apply for a
position of Volunteer Review Team Member, in representation of a Supporting
Organization or Advisory Committee, and/or for a position of Independent
Expert on the second Accountability and Transparency Review Team (ATRT 2).
Details on the mandate, missions, desired skill set and application process
will be included in the Call for Applicants. 


Applications received for a position of SO/AC representative on the ATRT 2
will be forwarded to the Supporting Organization or Advisory Committee
identified by the candidate for endorsement. Should your SO/AC require
additional information from applicants to reach your decision on
endorsement, please inform Staff as soon as you can so that it may be
included in the process. SO/AC endorsement will be factored into the
selection of the ATRT 2 Members.


The Call for Applicants also solicits independent experts to serve on the
ATRT 2. Candidates will be considered and appointed by Selectors. 


Given SO/ACs' key role in the application process, Staff would like to share
the following schedule with you:

*	5 October 2012 – Publication of the Call for Applicants for the
position of Volunteer Review team Member and Independent Expert 
*	5 December 2012 – Deadline to submit applications 
*	17 December 2012 – SO/ACs reveal the names of endorsed candidates 
*	7 January 2013 – Selectors announce the composition of the Review
*	Week of 21 January 2013 - Kick–off meeting


Please kindly note that should your SO/AC or constituency wish to discuss
this process, Staff is prepared to join your sessions in Toronto or to
attend conference calls depending on your availability to provide you with
an outline of the application process. Should you have any immediate
questions, please also feel free to email them to olof.nordling at icann.org
<applewebdata://89A00B2B-7D06-4B7A-A9DF-845D440FFD11>  and
