  5. General Assembly Chair
  6. From http://www.dnso.org/dnso/notes/19991005.NCtelecon-minutes.html There is a general misunderstunding about the GA role. Action: NC initiate a discussion about the GA structure as well as about relations between different components of the DNSO. From October 16th, after elections to the ICANN Board, the NC will initiate the call for nominations for permanent GA Chair. To be elected in LA. Action: NC initiate a discussion about concensus. There is a necessity to have more understanding abount consensus. The Chair of GA should not interpret consensus like in Santiago meetings. The coordination between the NC and GA is needed.
