Thanks Jeff,


I think we should put the confirmation of the appointment of co-chairs on
the consent agenda as you suggest.


Please could you confirm the position with Vice Chair/s as soon as you are
able to.


It's very encouraging to see the level of interest / participation.  I
wonder how we get similar levels of interest spread across the less
high-profile issues?

Subject: [council] Policy & Implementation WG Update


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,
