Agenda and related documents

  1. Discussion and adoption of agenda

  2. Minutes and Matters Arising

          Date: Mon, 25 Oct 1999 03:18:40 -0400

          From Andrew McLaughlin to the Names Council:

          Note that the current agenda for the ICANN Public Forum on
          Wednesday, November 3, includes about 5 minutes for remarks
          by a representative of the Names Council. See
          The NC should designate an appropriate (and available)

  3. Names Council Chair

        o Selection of LA NC Chair

          The IP Constituency was expected to chair the NC, namely Jonathan
          Cohen. As Jonathan got elected to the ICANN Board, it seems
          necessary to select somebody else.

  4. General Assembly Chair

        o Selection of LA GA Chair
        o Election of GA Chair for year 2000

     From http://www.dnso.org/dnso/notes/19991005.NCtelecon-minutes.html

          There is a general misunderstunding about the GA role.

          Action: NC initiate a discussion about the GA structure as well as
          about relations between different components of the DNSO. From October
          16th, after elections to the ICANN Board, the NC will initiate the call
          for nominations for permanent GA Chair. To be elected in LA.

          Action: NC initiate a discussion about concensus. There is a necessity
          to have more understanding abount consensus. The Chair of GA should not
          interpret consensus like in Santiago meetings. The coordination between
          the NC and GA is needed.

  5. Schedule of Meetings in LA and technical arrangements

     General pattern


                * Meetings of some ICANN-related entities, such as Domain Name
