Thanks Tomslin, Maxim, and Wisdom for your review and feedback. 


If any other Councilors would like to review, it would be much appreciated. This criteria is super important in that it sets expectations for potential applicants and also guides the NomCom in its selection process. If I may, I’d like to set a deadline of this Friday, 8 January 2021 for any additional input?

Dear Councilors,


The GNSO Council was invited to review the position description that the ICANN Nominating Committee uses in order to fulfill its appointments to the GNSO Council. You can find the position description for the 2020 cycle here: https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/nomcom2020-positions-2020-01-13-en#gnso [icann.org]. The position description is of course an important piece of guidance for the NomCom, to ensure that it appoints GNSO Councilors that will succeed in their role.


Staff, in coordination with Council leadership, has taken that existing description and dropped it into a Google document, where it has undergone some preliminary redlines. A fair amount of those edits are mostly structural, to have the position description look more like a job description (e.g., separating out criteria and skillset and also separating out job responsibilities and time commitment). You can find that redline here, where you are invited to add in your own suggested edits: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1WzjvntnliTSZ43b0hJkhh_Hb2onzxXufmTnZJCEyGjU/edit?usp=sharing [docs.google.com]. 


The target date to receive and integrate feedback as appropriate is early January.


Finally and most importantly, happy holidays to you all!
