Hi All

Sorry for the confusion. Stephanie you have got it straight.

At this point we just want a few volunteers to form a GNSO Council Selection Committee to select a GNSO Liaison to the CSC.

ICANN has prepared an announcement about the establishment of the CSC, and this announcement will include a call for expressions of interest. I hope this will go out early next week.

Once we have the GNSO Council Selection Committee in place I'd be happy to convene a call to explain the process in a little more detail.

Just a couple of points of clarification, if I may....

1.    Right now, you are looking only for volunteers for the selection committee.

2.    As this is not a GNSO Council liaison, we should not be restricting this to councilors, this is a non RySG GNSO liaison to the CSC and not a formal liaison from the GNSO Council. It is similar to how we manage nominations to the Review Teams, basically the person has to come from the Non-RySG GNSO community.

3.    Council's role here is to form a selection committee and that selection committee will then run an open call for volunteers from the non-RySG GNSO community. That selection committee can be composed of councilors, but there must be an open call by that selection committee to the community to fill this critical role, as this was the intention of the CWG proposal in this matter.

Have I got this straight?

Thanks, Donna.

And just a reminder for folks that the message below should read 27 MAY as a deadline for volunteers (not 27 JUN).

Thank you,

Just resending as a reminder. It would be great to get at least three volunteers to take this on.

Dear Councilors

During the last Council meeting I provided a brief overview of some of the GNSO Council obligations associated with the implementation of the CWG's Transition Proposal and in particular, those related to establishing a Customer Standing Committee (CSC). The CSC is intended to monitor the performance of IANA post-transition and NTIA has requested that the CSC be established by 15 August 2016, in order to be ready to undertake its role upon transition.

The CSC will comprise the following:


2 x gTLD registry operators to be selected by the RySG (mandatory)

2 x ccTLD registry operators to be selected by the ccNSO (mandatory)

1 x registry operator not considered to be a ccTLD or gTLD (optional)

Liaisons (all are non-mandatory with the exception of IANA)

1 x IANA

1 x GNSO (non-registry)

1 x ALAC

1 x GAC

1 x ASO


1 x SSAC

The GNSO Council is responsible for selecting the GNSO Liaison, and also approving the final composition of the CSC in conjunction with the ccNSO Council. To that end, we are seeking volunteers to serve as the GNSO Council Selection Committee to select the GNSO Liaison for the CSC and to also review the proposed final composition of the CSC and make a recommendation to the Council for approval. The optimal number would be somewhere between 3 to 5 members, representing a cross-section of the Council. In the event that we have no volunteers, James, Heather and I have agreed to serve as the Selection Committee.

It was anticipated that ICANN would post a call for Expressions of Interest last week, but this has been delayed pending approval of the CWG. However, given the timeline, it would be helpful if those interested could respond to this email by Friday 27 June 2016, 23:59 UTC.

More detail regarding the GNSO Council obligations regarding the CSC is provided in the attached documents.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
