RE: [registrars] Draft Registrar Position Paper on Restructuring
I think you have described the POLICY council nomination committee, not the
BOARD nomination committee. Can you rework the doc so this is clearer that
there will be 2 seperate nomination committees, and the structure of the
board one we discussed.
As I recall, it was to be roughly 5 at large, 5 government and 5 by those
who have contracts with ICANN, as well as one or two non-voting current
board members (who's term is not expiring). The entire idea was to get away
from the DNSO quagmire that we see now, and to eliminate the politicing and
horse trading that goes on.

Subject: [registrars] Draft Registrar Position Paper on Restructuring
The Registrar Constituency has undertaken the following activities in
connection with the current ICANN restructuring discussion:
Introduction to restructuring discussion during our meeting in Dulles prior
to Accra (approximately 40 registrars in attendance);
Discussion in Accra during Registrar meeting (approximately 10-15 registrars
Two constituency wide telephone conferences on restructuring (approximately
10-15 registrars participating in each);
Two Registrar Executive Committee calls on the subject (4-5 Exec Committee
Joint Registrar/Registry meeting in DC with Joe Sims (6 registrar
Teleconferences between select registrars that volunteered to serve on
Registrar Constituency Restructuring Task Force.
Based on this collective outreach, the Registrar Executive Committee has
drafted the following position paper that it believes is representative of
the collective viewpoints expressed by most registrars. This paper will be
posted for a brief comment period. Depending upon community feedback we may
host another call to finalize the document if necessary.
This is an important issue and we urge all registrars to read this document
