To my fellow council members,

I would like to offer one last motion before I end my tenure on the GNSO

I know I have missed the motion deadline and therefore request
consideration for waiver of the 10 day rule for motions, noting that
this request is submitted at least 24 hours before the meeting scheduled
for 21 October 2015.

I also note that I am available to consider any friendly amendments that
might be required for acceptance of the resolution that might come based
on Stakeholder Group and Constituency consideration of this motion.

--- Motion


On 13 November 2014 the GNSO approved the charter for a Cross Community
Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability (CCWG-Accountabilty);

On  3 August the Public Comment on the CCWG-Accountability 2nd
Draft Proposal was initiated, which ended on 12 Septemebr 2015;

The CCWG-Accountabilty has analyzed the comments received in the
review of the 2nd draft and is working toward updating its reference
implementation taking into account the concerns expressed in those comments;

and The CCWG-Accountabilty  is working in a considered and collegial
manner to achieve a consensus solution to ICANN Accountability;


the superb and continuing leadership of CCWG-Accountabilty by the team
which includes the GNSO appointed co-chair Thomas Rickert, to whom we
are grateful for his time and consistent effort;


The GNSO reiterates its support for the process that is ongoing in

its commitment to participating in continuing discussions with the goal
of finding solution with broad agreement for ICANN accountabity in
preparations for IANA transition, and

to working through the process as agreed upon in the charter before
making any resolutions declaring support or opposition to possible outcomes.
