[council] Fw: [ga] status of the GA -Intake committee
I believe the NC needs to clarify issues relating to the
election/appointment of the GA chair (see email below). This matter was
discussed in LA, but we need to clarify the way forward.
I think it will be embarrasing for us if this matter is still outstanding at
the Melbourne ICANN meeting.
Could the intake committee consider scheduling this as an agenda item?
