Linda Wilson just suggests, after the thank you resolutions, to set up a corporate governance committee. The committee is supposed to review the work of the board and its relationship to the CEO and the staff lead by the CEO, including review of the existing committees. Committee could work on the selection of members of other committees; chairman, etc… The committee should relate to the ombudsperson, the public participation manager, and the CEO and the chairman of the board. Would look into complaints, so board doesn’t have to rely on anecdotal information. Suggests to adopt language similar to the privacy committee, consider the topic, and decide in December. Amadeu: One of his beloved topics. If one part of ICANN underperforms, it’s the board. Not a problem of the individual. Structural constraints. Too many people trying to do too many things on teleconferences. The way in which ICANN board populates committees is extremely strange. Mailing list not used as a tool. Not talking as seriously about the board as about the councils. Cerf: Amadeu excellent candidate. Alejandro: Received requests for changes in corporate governance. Not within scope of ERC. Felicitous way of acting. Put decisions into hands of a group that can actually produce some action. Will also be necessary not to overreact to the demands. Don’t do everything at once, but put up work program. Andy: Amadeu gave good description of the task. Very good idea. Exactly that part the ERC missed to address. Unanimously accepted.

Privacy working group

Andy has proposed that the board sets up a privacy committee. Some fear of mission creep. Karl Auerbach argues that a privacy committee is the flip side of mandating the release of information. Board will investigate this. Resolution accepted.

ASO again

Lyman Chapin moves to revert the ASO bylaw provisions to the status quo ante, with exception: Art. VIII, S. 1, item 2 refers to anticipated MoU, which now exists. Apart of that, new text could be identical to old one. No GAC liaison for the moment…

Lyman Chapin moves to revert the ASO bylaw provisions to the status quo ante, with exception: Art. VIII, S. 1, item 2 refers to anticipated MoU, which now exists. Apart of that, new text could be identical to old one. No GAC liaison for the moment. Blokzijl: Surrealistic. New situation relative RIRs, any text there is as good or bad as any other. Just put in “[to be supplied]”. Cohen doesn’t understand why Lyman makes suggestion. Lynn: Lyman’s suggestion is reasonable. Intent is to go back to status quo ante, not to sneak something in. Calls for vote. (Linda seconds.) Accepted.

Bret’s amendment.

The independent review proposal by Bret Fausett was just moved by Karl Auerbach and seconded by Andy Müller-Maguhn. Some board members find it appealing, but are skeptical. Friendly amendment from Linda Wilson: Replace bearing the cost by sharing in it. Cerf suggests to postpone this along with ALAC funding.

ASO bylaw discussion

Significant discussion on the bylaw provisions on the ASO. Blokzijl wants to remove these until agreement has been found; others want to keep them, so the ASO continues to exist when (1) the new bylaws are adopted, but (2) there is no MoU with the…

Significant discussion on the bylaw provisions on the ASO. Blokzijl wants to remove these until agreement has been found; others want to keep them, so the ASO continues to exist when (1) the new bylaws are adopted, but (2) there is no MoU with the RIRs. Linda Wilson asks about changes between currently effective language (2000 bylaws) and draft text. Lyman Chapin explains the changes, some as being relatively cosmetical (“organization to be created” vs. current ASO), and one being about a GAC representative. Blokzijl: New text, and impossible to return to old text in the context. If there is no MoU with the RIRs in December, then ICANN has a larger problem than just bylaw language. Vote: Cerf confused about numbers, but ASO language remains in bylaws.
