Re: [council] clarification of yesterdeays action regarding motion made by Caroline
I agree that we need clarification on the nature of the WG to be headed by YJ. I have not so far received any communication by email from YJ on this matter so I am not clear what the Chair is referring to in the email below.
I abstained from the vote appointing YJ as chair of ????because I was not clear what she was being asked to do. My impression - but that is all it is - was that the NC agreed that YJ was to head up a group to provide some advice to the DNSO review TF (headed by Therese) relating some how (I am not cler how) to the composition NC Workig groups, committees and/or task forces.
What is clear to me, is that the NC did not provide any clear terms of reference for whatever group it was that YJ is to chair. I do not believe that we can resolve this issue by reference to the transcript (since this has not been agreed). Rather, we must now work together to clarify and determine the terms of reference for the group to be chaired by YJ.
Since Caroline proposed th motion to apoint YJ as chair, I suggest Caroline propose terms of reference for YJ for consideration and endorsement by the NC. Anybody else could also propose terms of reference. However, the main point here is that the NC needs to consider and approve terms of reference for the group to be chaired by YJ.
