[ga] Proposed Bylaws changes re SO elections

To the DSO General Assembly and Names Council:

The ICANN staff has posted a set of proposed Bylaws changes relating to the
SO election processes for ICANN Directors.  The proposed amendments attempt
to do the following:

- Shorten the post-election notification period to from 15 to 7 days, to
maximize the period of time available for the SO Councils to complete the
election process;
- Clarify that an SO Council member cannot simultaneously serve as an ICANN
- Clarify that an SO Council member cannot vote or otherwise participate in
an election for ICANN Director in which that member is also a nominated
- Clarify how the geographic diversity requirement for the SOs relates to
the requirement for the At-Large Directors; and
- State the basic geographic diversity rule for the DNSO Directors, namely,
that those three Directors must be citizens of three different regions.

The proposed amendments can be found at

be sent to <comment-bylaws@icann.org>;  the comment archive is located at

deadline for comments is September 27.

Please forward this message as appropriate.
