While Amadeu says that is not necesary an Administration Comittee for GA,
just four persons, I am agree with Randy about the fact that still exists
five regions and this fact cannot be ignored when a structure of this kind
is proposed.  

A Proposal:  Instead of one GA Chair by year, 5 GA Chairs, serving in
different terms of the same year, and these people can form the AdCom.

How can be elected this GA Chair?  Well, this function can be rotated
during the year in five terms: every term is the turn of a GA Chair of a
different region.  How elect the order of these GA Chair will serve?  By
"straw"! Who takes the
shortest straw begins first...when the term of the first ends, the again
the "straw" method (but the regions that served already cannot again be in
this roung) and the region elected will serve as GA Chair, and so

Volunteering:  well, someone has to make the calling for volunteers.
After nominations, secundations, or whatever process GA decides, GA
elects from the list of volunteers
the five names of the five regions they wish to see in the GA AdCom.
Then the five people of the five regions more voted will form such AdCom.
Also alternates may be desirable.

I am not agree that a Chair o coChair serving in the Names Council,
also serve in the GA AdCom.  I think this person of the Names Council can
be like a link between Names Council and GA AdCom but without be a member
of the GA AdCom.

Names Council have the power to deny to the GA an AdCOM?

I don't see the proposal of an AdCom of GA as adding layers.  I see this
as a procedure that can benefit to GA with a better organized GA.
