Re: [ga] Santiago DNSO GA Chair


I found the following in the Bylaws.  If it's not clear in the Bylaws 
that the Names Council should consult the DNSO General 
Assembly when electing the Chair of the General Assembly - then I 
will indeed make request to the ICANN Board that the Bylaws be 


(b)  The NC is responsible for the management of the consensus 
building process of the DNSO.  It shall adopt such procedures and 
policies as it sees fit to carry out that responsibility, including the 
designation of such research or drafting committees, working 
groups and other bodies of the GA as it determines are appropriate 
to carry out the substantive work of the DNSO.  Such bodies shall 
include at least one representative nominated by each recognized 
Constituency, and shall provide appropriate means, as determined 
by the NC, for input and such participation as is practicable under 
the circumstances by other interested parties.  Any reports or 
recommendations presented to the NC by such bodies shall be 
posted on a web site accessible by the public for public review and 
comment; absent clear justification, which shall be publicly stated 
at the time of any action, the NC shall not act on any report or 
recommendation until a reasonable time for public comment has 
passed and the NC has reviewed and evaluated all public 
comments received. The NC is responsible for ensuring that all 
responsible views have been heard and considered prior to a 
decision by the NC.
