Doing a post-mortem / lessons learned would be very helpful.

The amount of work that Kurt, the members of the EPDP and Staff have done over the last few months has been amazing.

Thank you, Keith.   Kurt's undertaking (along with the EPDP WG) was monumental!  I hope we will be able to find time in Kobe to discuss with Kurt his lessons learned so those may be utilized for phase 2.

Hi Kurt,

Thanks for your email, and more importantly for your commitment, sacrifice and service over the last seven months. I will follow up with another email soon, but I wanted to acknowledge receipt of your message and express my gratitude and appreciation on behalf of the GNSO Council. I also appreciate and welcome your willingness to continue as Chair during the transition to Phase 2 and the next Chair.

Best regards,

Dear Keith:

For a set of personal and professional reasons, I am writing to resign my post as Chair of the EPDP for Registration Data. I was honored to be selected by the GNSO Council leadership for the post and attempted to live up to the position expectations and requirements at every moment since I began in July.

I will stay on for as long as it takes to find a replacement Chair and smoothly transition the responsibilities. I have several thoughts about the follow-on work that I can share for Council and EPDP Team consideration.

I wish to thank the Support Team for their incredibly hard, incredibly excellent work, and the EPDP Team members for their tireless, constructive participation and willingness to compromise.

I will remain available to you, the Council Leadership and the EPDP Team as necessary and at your convenience.

Thanks for your and the Council Leadership’s support.
