  4. Election of ICANN Board Members

        o Javier Sola

          Motion to the NC
          for the procedure concerning elections of 3 delegates from the
          DNSO to the ICANN Board

        o Denis Jennings

          Motion about geographic diversity of the Names Council:

          "The Names Council agree that no two of the three ICANN Board
          Directors elected by the DNSO may be residents (citizens ?) of the
          same geographic region."

          Supported by Amadeu Abril i Abril with the following comment:

          I support that. And I am afraid tht the ·citizenship" requiremnt
          when regarding Board Directors is very unlikely to be softened in
          any occasion....

  5. Election of Permanent Names Council Members

        o Amadeu Abril i Abril:

          All constituencies are requested to explain whether they were
          holding new elections on the scheduled timer or not, and whether
          they were considering to ask for a "geographic diversity waiver".

          Registrars Constituency is holding new elections (as it was the
          original compromise before the Board request) and is considering,
          even if not yet decided to ask for a partial waiver, in the form
          of requesting that residency, not citizenship be taken into
          account for this NC elections.

  6. WG-D Report
        o Theresea Swinehart and Brett Faucett, Co-chairs of WG-D, sent the
          interim proposal to the NC

  7. Schedule of Meetings In LA

     Including GA Chair designation

  8. AOB

          by registrars.
