> ===start amendment===
> 3. NC committees and task forces
> 3.1 Types. From time to time the NC may form sub-groups. These are
> typically of three types. Each type may form and be responsible
> for further sub-groups from within their membership. The composition
> of these groups shall follow the spirit of the ICANN Bylaws with
> regard to geographic diversity.
> a) Interim committee - a preparatory group of around 3-5 NC members
> from different constituencies charged with turning an idea
> into a proposed action plan or writing terms of reference.
> The interim committee is dissolved following NC adoption of
> its output and/or the setting up of a new group to act upon
> that output.
> b) Committee - a small group of around 3-5 from different
> constituencies which has typically been delegated a limited
> authority from the NC.
> c) Task Force - a group equally representative of each NC
> constituency (typically one from each) and typically charged
> with forming a recommendation to the NC or implementing
> an agreed NC action plan.
> 3.2 Chair
> 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.
> 3.3 Composition of committees and task forces
> Both type-b committees and type-c task forces may comprise
> NC members and/or nominees from outside of the NC provided that:
> a) the nominee is nominated by a member of the NC and be a member
> of the nominees' constituency or, where there is GA involvement,
> be nominated by the chair of the GA and be a member of the GA
> b) a constituency nominee has the support of the three NC members
> of the constituency
> c) the nominee is not also a member of the same ICANN-relevant
> organisation as an NC member on the task force, the NC member
> taking priority at any time
> d) no two nominees are members of the same ICANN-relevant
> organisation, the first nominee taking priority
> e) there are at least two NC members of the task force from
> different constituencies
> f) regardless of the number of members of the group no constituency
> nor the general assembly may have more than one vote
> g) where authority has been delegated by the NC, a simple majority
> must be NC members, those NC members hold the delegated
> authority and only those NC members can vote.
> Note: An ICANN-relevant organisation is defined as one that any
> NC member considers to be ICANN-relevant.
> 3.4 Working group
> In addition to the above groups the NC will from time to time
> form a DNSO working group (WG) with a membership open to all
> DNSO participants. The WG objective is to formulate positions on
> policies, facilitate the development of consensus support for
> policies and to produce a report to the NC highlighting these
> positions and level of support. See the separate Procedures
> for Working Groups for full detail [in preparation].
> 3.5 Variations
> Specific variations to the above guidelines may exist within the DNSO
> rules of procedures, such specific variations taking precedence. Any
> other variation requires the approval of the NC.
