RE: [ga] FW: [council] NC Chair Election (fwd)

The original intent of the Term Limits was that the role of the Chair be
rotated amongst constituencies, so that is precisely what the gTLD
Constituency has been advocating.

With respect to the rest of the response from Caroline, the gTLD
Constituency is preparing its response.

I have to say that I still have some problems with doing this (not that I
get a 
vote but I do get a voice!).  Waivers generally are used in exceptional 
circumstances such as no-one else is available or there is some massive
facing an organisation in which the need for continuity is stronger than

Regardless of the fact Philip is regarded by the NC as having done a good
job I 
can't imagine that amongst the 20 other members there are not others capable
doing a good job also.  If this is not the case then we have problems :-)

On a side note I wonder what support if any there would be to change (in 
future) the Chairmanship to along the lines of the the EU Presidency - by 
rotation amongst the constituencies.
