[nc-transfer] Re: Draft Resolution

Transfer TF Members:

Today, in the NC meeting, the NC approved the policy recommendations, called 
for the estblishment of an implementations issues working group or 
committee, and gave a firm time line for that work, noted the importance of 
having user participation/liaison from the TF to the implementation group's 
work [Registrar and Registry plus ICANN staff], noted that there are no 
policy change responsibilities envisioned for the implementation process -- 
any policy changes would have to be undertaken at teh NC/probably via the 
TF, and noted the importance of getting the work done so that a final report 
can be sent to the Board for their approval in March BD meeting. After 
extensive discussion, including support for the importance of the 
implementation issues work, and expressions of concern by one of the 
registry reps, and after expressions of support from other constituencies, 
including the registrar constiuency, and with the addition of the 
implementation issues working effort, there was unanimous approval of the 
policy recommendations in the TF report.

Congratulations to the extensive work of the TF members.
I will be consulting with the TF members regarding representation and 
participation in the implementation work effort. We are close to being 
"done", and yet our final tasks will be very critical.

The Registrars and Registries have made it very clear that they are 
committed to providing the resources to provide the information regarding 
implementation issues in the time frame ahead. That is tremendously 
important, and I wish to express my thanks for that, especially those who 
have made personal outreach to make their intent and interest clear.

This additional communication by the constituency members is tremedously 
positive and welcomed, and again, my thanks to the TF, and to all of the 
community members, including the ICANN staff for your work, and for your 
support and participation in the next step... which will be the final one 
for the Transfer Task Force.
