RE: [ga] Proposed GA Adcom: a little modification to Elizabeth's Proposal

Elizabeth and all:

Your proposal is good and simpliest but I wish to propose a little change
to it because
with the actual schedule you propose, I feel the GA wouldn't have any control
over their own AdCom election.

1.  General Assembly call for nominations: 2 or 3 by regions, with
alternates, etc.
2.  General Assembly elects the AdCom among nominees
3.  Only after General Assembly elects the AdCom, then Names Council elects
    from the AdCom elected who will be the Chairman of GA.

With this I think the General Assembly can has more autonomy, 
and in the same way this procedure is not against ICANN by laws 
about election of the GA Chairman be done by
Names Council, because in fact, General Assembly is presenting to
the Names Council, five candidates for Chairman: the members of the
AdCom elected!


Best Regards
