[council] Next telephone conference call (URGENT)

While there were very few people left on the call, we must have a
teleconference call to wrap up the outstanding issues of the election
issues, such as ratification, formal notification to ICANN, and making
voting records public (see Andrew's October 13th email below)

We are working up on setting up the call which is TENTATIVELY scheduled
for next Wednesday, October 27th, at 9 am Eastern Standard time.  If you
will NOT be able to make the call, please let me know ASAP.  If there
are too many no shows, we will pick a new date.  


To the Names Council:

In anticipation of the conclusion of the voting process for ICANN
seats, I want to outline the next set of steps that will be necessary to
formalize and finalize the results, and to make permanent the status of
(still) provisional Names Council.

STEP 1:  Final recognition of Names Council and DNSO constituency groups
DATE:  Monday, 18 October
EXPLANATION:  The Board granted provisional recognition to the Names
and DNSO constituency groups in Berlin.  As the Board's Berlin
stated, the provisional Names Council will perform all of the functions
the permanent Names Council, except for the election of ICANN Directors.
The Board expects to formally act on all pending constituency group
applications and on the final recognition of the Names Council on
Monday, 18

STEP 2:  Ratification of the NC election results by permanent NC
DATE:  Week of 18 October
EXPLANATION:  Following the Board's vote to grant final recognition to
Names Council, the (non-provisional) Names Council must then take the
step of ratifying the results of this week's election process.  This is
essentially a formality, necessitated by the sequence of (i) election
process, followed by (ii) final recognition.

STEP 3:  Formal notification to ICANN
DATE:  22 October
EXPLANATION:  The act of notification triggers the 7-day period after
the DNSO's choices will formally join the ICANN Board.  In order to
that all three Supporting Organization directors are seated on the same
date -- in other words, to ensure that the three Supporting
are treated identically, despite their differing election processes and
schedules -- ICANN requests that all three SOs transmit their formal
notifications to ICANN on 22 October.  A common notification date will
for a smooth and uniform transition to the new ICANN Board.

Let me know if you have any questions.
