Approval of agenda:
The agenda was approved and an additional item was proposed by Marilyn Cade:
Deletes and the existing Transfer Task Force.
AOB: Deletes and transfer Task Force
Marilyn Cade reported that the Task Force had a series of meetings planned
where guests made presentations to the Task Force members, some calls were open
and all calls were recorded and minuted.
There is some discussion on whether then Task Force should conclude the work on deletions.
Some believe that as there is expertise in the Task Force and much of the achievable workable transfer policy will depend on Standard deletions it should be a second priority work item.
While others believe that deletions were acknowledged as an appropriate referral to the Task Force by the Board, and that the Names Council forwarded this work to the Transfer Task Force, yet others disagree that this TF should do any work on deletions, and strongly advocate that the TF advise the NC that they are unable to work on the issue. When considering whether to create a new task force, the names council members should consider whether their constituencies have the resources to contribute to the task force.
Complete Transfers/ complete Deletions on different tracks as described below. Add in a technical working aspect to the current TF on deletions.
Option 2: Return the deletions issue to the Names Council and recommend that the Names Council establish a different Task Force.
Ken Stubbs said that the meeting was not in a position to deal with
the delete issue as it has not been put up as a proper agenda item.
Bruce Tonkin referred to the new procedure proposed to create an issue report to the Names Council and let the Council decide whether it will deal with it, and if so whether to deal with the issue at the Names council level or use a task force.
Philip Sheppard proposed that the Names Council Chairman and Marilyn Cade make a short proposal around the issue to discuss during the September 12, Names Council meeting.
Item I. 1. Confirming vote for NC chair for term of office starting 1 September
2002 for six months.

Decision 1: Bruce Tonkin is the Names Council Chair for 6 months office starting 1 September
