Hi Jeff,

You have my full backing as Chair . I know you will do a great job.

If the new WG on Monday’ call thinks it is appropriate I would be interested in putting my name forward to act as your No2 .
Like yourself, I have been heavily involved in the gTLD  Round 1 procedures, processes, PDPs,  gaining  my own insights  (particularly strategic, financial, operational  ones), into the gTLD programme.

I’m really looking forward to kick off on Monday.

Unfortunately, I will be in the air and will miss the first meeting. I support Jeff as Chair as well.  Best, Jon

I would like to put my name forward as volunteering for a leadership position within the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP WG.

For those of you who don’t know me, promoting competition in the gTLD namespace and the introduction of gTLDs have been my key areas of focus for the past fifteen years and I have participated actively in each of the new gTLD rounds to date.  Prior to working at my present company, Valideus/Com Laude, I worked at Neustar for close to 15 years in the Registry Services organization both on the legal and policy side.  Through that work, I participated in the application, administration and operation of the .BIZ top-level domain in 2000, as well as the application and implementation processed for the back-end operation of .travel and .tel selected in the 2005 round of new gTLDs.

With respect to the latest round of new gTLDs, I have been very active serving on numerous GNSO subcommittees since 2005, including those that initially established the program.  In addition, I served as the exclusive registry stakeholder group member on the Implementation Review Team (IRT) to recommend Rights Protection Mechanisms for the new gTLD Program to the ICANN Board as well as the GNSO’s STI Group to devise implementation mechanisms for those Rights Protection mechanisms.  Further, I also helped lead a small group to ensure that the Trademark Clearinghouse was implemented in a centralized (vs. decentralized) manner.  I also worked on a number of other issues including the Registry/Registrar vertical integration working group in 2009 and 2010, and co-chaired the first working group on the protection of IOC and Red Cross names at the top level.  Most recently I served as one of the co-chairs of the new gTLD Discussion Group on new gTLD Subsequent Rounds working on drawing up a list of issues for the GNSO to consider in this policy development process.

I have unique insights into the new gTLD program that I would like to bring to this Working Group having an Intellectual Property legal background, but also ample experience working directly at a Registry, a back-end registry services provider, and more recently at a Registrar and Registry Services consulting firm.   While at Neustar (2001-early 2015) I was able to head up the Registry Services business team responsible for the launch of .nyc, but also serving as the back end operator for 350+ generic and brand top-level domain applications.  In that capacity, I was responsible for soliciting both gTLDs and brand TLDs and was able to lead the team into signing up TLD applications of any back-end registry operator.  In addition, I was the business and relationship lead for the .nyc TLD which launched a little over one year ago.  At Com Laude/Valideus, I have also seen a number of other perspectives of the new gTLD program both from a corporate registrar/brand protection perspective as well as a company that provides consultative services to a number of brand TLDs (through Specification 13) and to restricted and unrestricted TLDs.

With all of that said, I understand that a leadership position within the WG requires neutrality in ensuring that all viewpoints are heard without having any pre-conceived notions or outcomes.  I have reviewed the requirements with my employer and while they may have opinions on a number of the elements of the new gTLD program, they understand that if they want to express those views and I am on the leadership team, those views must be expressed by other members of my organization.  I have chaired a number of other working groups both within the ICANN community, including ones on Whois, and the reformation of the Policy Development Process.   I understand the time commitment involved and am ready to make that commitment.

I would be happy to answer any questions and I look forward to talking on Monday.

Subject: [Gnso-newgtld-wg] - Welcome to the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP WG

Dear WG Members,

While there have already been some emails exchanged, I wanted to take the opportunity to welcome you all and thank you for volunteering for the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures Policy Development Process Working Group (PDP WG). In addition to the information already shared in the call for volunteers, I wanted to provide you with some further details concerning next steps.

First meeting

The majority of Members have already completed this task, but as requested by the GNSO Secretariat in the confirmation email that you received after signing up for this WG, please provide a Statement of Interest by going to: https://community.icann.org/x/cYLg if you have not done so already. You will need to use your Confluence Login ID and Password to access this and other workspaces within the Confluence wiki site. If you are a new Confluence user, your ID and Password should have been provided to you; please let gnso-secs at icann.org<https://mm.icann.org/mailman/listinfo/gnso-rds-pdp-wg> know if you have not yet received them.

WG Leadership
Per the Council's resolution, until such time as the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP WG selects a chair(s) for the WG and that chair(s) is/are confirmed by the GNSO Council, the GNSO Council liaison to the WG, Paul McGrady, will serve as the interim chair. For those interested in volunteering for a leadership position in the WG, please review the attached document, which outlines the tasks and expected skills of a GNSO WG Chair. If you would like to put forth your name for a WG leadership position, please feel free to do so on the email list in advance of the first meeting as it is hoped that the selection of the WG Chair(s) will take place during that first meeting.

Newcomer webinars

For those that are new to a GNSO Working Group and/or the GNSO Policy Development Process, we'll be hosting two separate webinars in the near future that are intended to aid newcomers to the GNSO to learn about the administrative workings of a WG (conference call facilities, Adobe Connect, wiki, etc) as well as the GNSO Policy Development Process. You will be receiving further information about these in a separate email. The WG may also identify needs for additional introductory webinars or tutorial materials.

Should you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
