Dear Jonathan, Maria and Wolf-Ulrich;

In view of your recent dialogue about Councilor learning curves and induction materials, I wanted to advise the Council that as part of "Phase 2" of the updated GNSO.icann.org website, staff is currently developing introductory materials to use as a standing resource for councilors and community members on a variety of introductory "basic" topics such as GNSO Working Group formation and operations, PDP procedures, communications tools and guides for new councilors and working group chairs.

We are working to leverage existing materials including some that Glen currently gathers and shares when new Councilors come on board.

The materials will ultimately find a home on the "Basics" tab of the GNSO web site - http://newgnso.icann.org/en/basics/getting-started.  We will alert you all as those materials are added to the site.

On the horizon we envision developing other materials for the page on particular topics like a "DNS 101 Guide".  We would welcome suggestions about additional topics and subjects that any of you thinkmight be of value as a future addition to the Basics Tab as either a refresher or introduction to a particular matter for interested community members.

In the meantime, I hope the currently structured Active Projects/Groups/Teams page (http://newgnso.icann.org/en/group-activities/active-groups.htm) and the document linked to the Pending Projects List page (http://newgnso.icann.org/en/ongoing-work/pending-projects-list.htm ) of the GNSO web site will provide some useful status, background and context information regarding the full range of current GNSO Council matters, issues and topics of interest.

Best regards,

Rob Hoggarth
