Subject: [council] GAC Liaison - Update


Dear Council Colleagues -


Recently we closed the nomination period for candidates interested in being
considered for the role of GNSO Liaison to the GAC.  Unfortunately, the
response from the GNSO community was underwhelming.  The Vice Chairs and I
believe that this may be at least partly attributable to the timing of the
announcement, as more candidates could be interested in the role if it
coincided with the terms of other elected and appointed positions, which is
the conclusion of the AGM in Hyderabad.


Therefore, with this in mind, I'd like to propose that we postpone the
selection of a new GNSO - GAC Liaison until later in the fall, with the
(rough) timeline listed below.  It is expected that the additional time will
generate renewed attention to the role, additional expressions of interest
from prospective candidates, and permanently align the term of this position
with that of other terms, including most Councilors.


Please let me know if you have any concerns or objections to this approach.
On a related note, Mason Cole has graciously agreed to stay on a few extra
months to ensure continuity.  Thank you, Mason.

Council Chairs consider candidates and notify first choice  20 OCT

Chairs submit motion to Council by 29 OCT for consideration during Council
