Thanks for raising the issue of a possible Board Liaison to the GAC-Council Closed Generics Team. The Board’s Framing Paper<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_en_system_files_correspondence_botterman-2Dto-2Dismail-2Dfouquart-2D06mar22-2Den.pdf&d=DwMGaQ&c=qmi9WrYRGQEDDOxOwKrAjW7mWovpzN_EKyRbeK_zbP0&r=Kepk-9GEB6JgOj0vUGl8c0hdrRM7FW-8Is-VAQU1VAm5U0rBXiZs3BfB3GfKU2uR&m=8yRy_X3ajtqLA-Y4ZVT3r01_2mJkSkrl_Wo12VSlq52Q2L1wS1bd-XF-fljTeuzi&s=As6jWCI31ktdgABRS1DVlhShfFcW03uFtNd6hhconrU&e=> from March anticipated on page 7 that, as the process came together, GAC and GNSO representatives could give further consideration to the utility of having a Board Liaison to the work.  I agree that a Board Liaison would be useful so that the process reflects the Board’s request of achieving a balanced outcome.  The transparency and direct lines of communication will be useful as well.

As the participant in the dialogue from Council leadership, I will make sure to update participants with any discussion coming from the GNSO Council and I will raise this issue with the participants on our next call.

I look forward to updating Council as additional information is available.

Kind regards,

This certainly seems like a good idea.  I would suggest that the Board might want to appoint the liaison from Sub Pro.  (Was that Avri?)  The topic was covered so extensively in Sub Pro deliberations and the background on those discussions would be helpful.

Subject: [council] AOB - Board Liaison to Closed Generic discussion

Hi Councillors:

I have been asked to nominate a brief discussion topic for AOB: the provision of a Board Liaison to the GAC-Council Closed Generics Team.

This issue was discussed during a recent RySG meeting with the idea that a Board liaison would be beneficial. Some in that meeting thought that there was an existing provision for a Board liaison. In any case, there have have been no Board member attendance at the Closed Generics' meetings.

For our Council discussion, I would like to get an understanding as to:

  *   whether a Board liaison is already expected (and so we should remind the Board of this)
  *   if not, whether we should request the Board to appoint a liaison (please check with your Closed Generic rep on this), and
  *   to address an associated topic, whether the Board liaison should be dis-interested or new to the issue to provide an uncoloured perspective.

If this can be simply settled or answered via an email discussion, that would be fine also.

Thanks everyone and best regards,
