Dear Councilors,

Yesterday we had our first teleconference of the Policy & Implementation Working Group.   On behalf of the Working Group, as the GNSO Council Liaison for the Working Group, I would like to inform you that the Working Group has elected to go with two co-chairs, and potentially two vice chairs.  The proposed co-chairs are J. Scott Evans (BC) and Chuck Gomes (RySG).  Two candidates have been proposed as Vice Chairs, Michael Graham (IPC) and Olevie Kouami (NPOC), however, the Working Group did not yet have time to consider whether to support one candidate or whether to have Co-Vice Chairs as well.  The working group is one of the largest groups I have seen to date (30+ members), so having a strong diverse leadership team has some appeal.  The Working Group will consider this at its next meeting scheduled for September 4, 2013..

In the meantime, as is required by the GNSO WG Operating Guidelines, the GNSO Council must confirm the appointment of the co-chairs and I ask the Council to do so at its next regularly scheduled meeting on September 5th.  In the past, this has not required a motion, but I am happy to craft one for inclusion on the Consent Agenda if deemed appropriate.  Until such confirmation occurs, J. Scott and Chuck are serving as provision Co-Chairs.

The Working Group is expected to finalize its work plan over the next couple of weeks and set out the milestones, deliverables, etc. and I will update the Council when those are completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Best regards,

Jeffrey J. Neuman
