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: http://www.icann.org/en/groups/nomcom/2014
Silvia Vivanco:ATRT 2: http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/atrt2/2013/001382.html
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?
Silvia Vivanco:Finance and Budget SC: https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/Finance+and+Budget+Subcommittee+WG+Teleconference+2014-01-14
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
Glenn McKnight:Thanks Louis
Silvia Vivanco:BMSPC: https://community.icann.org/display/ABMS/Board+Member+Selection+Process+Committee+cross+RALO+meeting+2014.02.07
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?
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?
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: https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+Ad-Hoc+ICANN+Accessibility+Working+Group
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: https://community.icann.org/display/alacpolicydev/At-Large+Policy+Development+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: http://atlarge-lists.icann.org/pipermail/alac/2014/007632.html
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
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 - http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars
Heidi Ullrich 2:2013 RAA: http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/raa/approved-with-specs-27jun13-en.htm
