Hi everyone

Something else for us to work on before 10 June. Perhaps we could get a small subgroup to work on the 7 questions the Review Team recommends we concentrate on and bring their report back to the CPWG for discussion. Any volunteers?

Dear Maureen,

We are contacting you in the capacity of Chair and Vice-Chairs of the NomCom Review Implementation Working Group (NomComRIWG). Following the ICANN Board’s acceptance [icann.org]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_resources_board-2Dmaterial_resolutions-2D2019-2D03-2D14-2Den-232.f&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=ds9md1zoepmwqw2nfk-Vs9ssxn1I3jPs97ekKkctEkM&m=9NKcAN6m7KRvkGN0GLBI9-zmm5SJc7qTs3VYR7qLXO8&s=QV-xPrzU_wX3_Nhs1qR6mZ4AoXW8Oorpwj35uOY8wTo&e=> of the Final Report [icann.org]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_en_system_files_files_nomcom-2Dreview-2Dfinal-2D05jun18-2Den.pdf&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=ds9md1zoepmwqw2nfk-Vs9ssxn1I3jPs97ekKkctEkM&m=9NKcAN6m7KRvkGN0GLBI9-zmm5SJc7qTs3VYR7qLXO8&s=MPjfAxJEdBF-EL74Y3Up7ADnPVWRfo65mvwv7XtMevY&e=> and the Feasibility Assessment and Initial Implementation Plan [icann.org]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_en_system_files_files_nomcom2-2Dipt-2Dreview-2Dfaiip-2D14dec18-2Den.pdf&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=ds9md1zoepmwqw2nfk-Vs9ssxn1I3jPs97ekKkctEkM&m=9NKcAN6m7KRvkGN0GLBI9-zmm5SJc7qTs3VYR7qLXO8&s=4nhBiDaUTcp8574HEr1-xxfudhb3m8aDQs8gU9vbp6o&e=>, we have been tasked to oversee the implementation of the twenty-seven (27) recommendations issued by the independent examiner.

Before implementation can begin, the Board has asked us to draft a Detailed Implementation Plan, due to be submitted to the Board’s Organizational Effectiveness Committee no later than 14 September 2019.

While the NomComRIWG has the Board-mandated responsibility to plan the implementation of the twenty-seven recommendations, we would welcome any and all feedback either as a single document from the ALAC or from individual members of the ALAC. All feedback will inform our drafting of the Detailed Implementation Plan.  We understand that you or the ALAC may not have the time to respond to all 27 recommendations, so we have identified seven where your input would be most helpful.

Please, limit your response to the process you suggest we follow for each implementation rather than advocating for any specific outcome of the recommendation.

We kindly ask you to provide us with your feedback no later than 10 June 2019. If you cannot respond by that time, but would like to provide input, please, let us know at your earliest convenience by when we can expect your feedback.

If you have any questions or concerns, either about the list of questions, or about any other aspect of the NomCom Review implementation, please, do not hesitate to reach out to us or any of ICANN’s support staff at any time.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Tom Barrett, Chair NomComRIWG
Cheryl Langdon-Orr, Vice-Chair NomComRIWG
Zahid Jamal, Vice-Chair NomComRIWG
