  Peter Knight:To Board.
  Alan Greenberg:NomCom is just starting its work
  Glenn McKnight:Louis can you provide the timeline for everyone
  Peter Knight:I sat in on a meeting where they were discussing, I thought, that they were done receiving nominations. Perhaps I misunderstood. There were three candidates already endorsed, a few more under consideration. Three RALOS have to support a nomination.
  Silvia Vivanco:NOMCOM:
  Silvia Vivanco:ATRT 2:
  Alan Greenberg:Peter, I think you are talking about the selection of the At-Large Director, not the NomCom appointed positions that Luis was talking about.
  Peter Knight:Ah, @Alan, I was confused!
  Alan Greenberg:Oops - Louis
  Tom Lowenhaupt:Louder please Olivier.
  Olivier Crepin-Leblond:London Mobile Phone Network is rubbish -- hence not loud enough
  Olivier Crepin-Leblond:I have the mic an inch away from my mouth
  Glenn McKnight:I have submitted for ATRT last week
  Olivier Crepin-Leblond:anywhere else in the world my phone works but in London 50% of the time it sounds like I'm in Timbuktu
  Olivier Crepin-Leblond:very far away
  Alan Greenberg:Does that mean it DOESN'T work in Timbuktu??
  judith hellerstein:Is there any video option to see who is  speaking?
  Glenn McKnight:nope
  Silvia Vivanco:Finance and Budget SC:
  judith hellerstein:i heard you. volume was a little soft but very clear
  Alan Greenberg:Often the person speaking is shown with their hand up....  Olivier now.
  Louis Houle:Time line for NomCom 2014
  Louis Houle:
  Glenn McKnight:Thanks Louis
  Silvia Vivanco:BMSPC:
  Glenn McKnight:Important for NARALO this year is the  Two At Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) representatives (one each from the Europe, and North America regions)
  Avri Doria:Can a candidate name his repalcement?  
  Avri Doria:seems somewhat problematic.
  Glenn McKnight:Applications will be considered in confidence and should be received by 1 April 2014 for full consideration. Selections are scheduled to be announced in August 2014. Successful candidates will take up their positions following ICANN's Annual Meeting in October 2014.
  Louis Houle:I lost the phoneline
  judith hellerstein:what are we voting for now?
  Seth Reiss:yes, please clarify
  Silvia Vivanco:Please Garth clarify the question
  Heidi Ullrich 2:I see 5
  Avri Doria:Picking ones one is an awful idea!  worst of political inbreeding.
  Heidi Ullrich 2:Hi all, apologies for being late
  judith hellerstein:so this is how you voite?
  Glenn McKnight:Louis remove your checkmark
  Avri Doria:only reps voting?
  Olivier Crepin-Leblond:on a call -- it is not a vote per-se. It's just taking the temperature of the room
  Peter Knight:Can't see how to puot in the checkmark
  judith hellerstein:should everyone be voting or just some people
  Seth Reiss:Its hard to vote if we have been asking for the issue to be clarified
  Avri Doria:i am shocked it is even being considered.
  Peter Knight:I try clicking on my line in place where other check marks are. I vote in favor the current (anywhere in NARALO territory)
  judith hellerstein:yes I have no idea how to vote
  Evan Leibovitch:shocked that what is being considered?
  Glenn McKnight:Agreed
  Tom Lowenhaupt:Agree
  Alan Greenberg:Decsision of NARALO can be taken during a meeting. The specific replacement issue does require a formal vote (per ALAC RoP)
  Peter Knight:How do we get broader representation geographically by keeping discussion in the immediate vicinity of existing members?
  leah symekher:thks
  Avri Doria:yes, Even, it smells of cigar filled back room, let me pick someone i think will vote for me.
  Avri Doria:even if that is not what you are doing, it smells of it.
  Heidi Ullrich 2:Accessibility WG workspace:
  Glenn McKnight:We will have this call on Thursday 13th at 1900 UTC - I will send out the meeting invitation later today.
  Peter Knight:I can smell the virtual cigar smoke ;-)
  Glenn McKnight:THis is the very first call  we haven't set the meeting agenda etc
  Heidi Ullrich 2:PD page:
  Alan Greenberg:Avri, replacement explicitly bound by RoP to "ALAC Members, or any individual selected to replace an ALAC Member for the purposes of the vote, are encouraged to consult with the RALO from their region, but voting will however be undirected and votes must be cast in the best interests of At-Large, the ALAC and ICANN." If NARALO would vote for ANYONE that they feel would not honour this, they should be shot.
  Garth Bruen:No official descision on the voting at the moment
  Avri Doria:and then i might think that there may be a conflict between being on noman and voting here.
  Avri Doria:... on nomcom and ...
  Avri Doria:since they will have conflicting purposes.
  Avri Doria:and will have inside knowledge others dont have, which is not a propoer NAROL consideration in the vote.
  Avri Doria:Seems a terrible idea in so many ways.
  Alan Greenberg:There is no proscription about someone on a SO/AC who selects a Board member from serving on the NomCom (not that I am aware of anyways)
  Glenn McKnight:Anyone interested to showcase in April or May for the SPOTLIGHT?
  Avri Doria:i know, Avri, prepress yourself!
  Avri Doria:repress ...
  Avri Doria:Evan, who picks the memebrs of these Boards?
  leah symekher:apologies, I have to drop off. Took my one hour lunch-time for this Meeting so need to report back.  great agenda. will follow up with Konstantin.  thx all
  Evan Leibovitch:Avri: That level of detail has not yet been fully cooked
  Seth Reiss:stepping away
  Evan Leibovitch:The email thread I referred to can be found here:
  Garth Bruen:@Avri, this is all clearly an issue which needs more detail, not going to make snap descisons on this
  Avri Doria:Evan that is a critical issue.  BTW, why isn't this a policy change.  and if so, shouldn't it got thorugh PDP?
  Louis Houle:Yes Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish
  Silvia Vivanco:And also if a contract between the parties needs to be translated the contracting parties will probably request it
  Seth Reiss:back
  Avri Doria:Garth, I recommend where the process of choosing the replace voteers is done without engaging the candidates, and that it not take their considerations into account.
  Alan Greenberg:Multi-lingual RAA -
  Heidi Ullrich 2:2013 RAA:
  Alfredo Calderon:I have to excuse myself. I have a nother meeting in 15 minutes.
  Yubelkys:Adios Alfredo. Hablamos pronto!
