Works for me.  Mason is an excellent choice and I support the 1 year "pilot" term.

Hi Amr,

As this is a pilot for a one year duration (FY2015) the term will end on 30 June 2015 following which the GAC and GNSO Council will review the pilot and determine whether to continue or not. Should a determination be made that the liaison role should continue, further consideration would indeed need to be given to duration of the term as well as possible limitations.

Best regards,

Thanks for the update, Jonathan, and thanks to the Council leadership team for their considerations and selection.

I was wondering wether or not others feel it necessary and desirable to set a term limit for the GNSO liaison to the GAC when considering drawing up the motion. Perhaps a two-year term limit with the option of renewal similar to a Councillor's term. We haven't really discussed this, and their are not guidelines in the operating procedures to steer by.

Just a thought..., and thanks again.
