      "The chair of an interim committee, committee or task force is appointed by the NC. In the case of a task force the NC typically chooses to ratify the election of a chair by the task force itself. The chair must be an NC member."

    2. Whereas, the Names Council seeks to encourage diversity of participation from each of its constituencies as well as the General Assembly on Task Forces;

    3. Whereas, the Names Council recognizes that due to time, resources, and specialized fields of expertise, the most appropriate people to serve on such Task Forces may not include members who serve on the Names Council;

    4. Whereas, the Names Council recognizes the amount of time and work that must be performed by the Chair of the Task Force and that such time and work may not be able to be performed by an existing Names Council member;

In the case of a task force the NC typically chooses to ratify the election of a chair by the task force itself. The chair need not be an NC member;

      b) A new Section 3.2(b) is inserted to state: "3.2(b) Liaison: The NC may appoint one or more liaisons to any TF for the purpose of ensuring that the TF is complying with the TF Terms of Reference (or issues statement as it may be referred to) and to report back to the NC the progress made of the TF.
