Terri Agnew:Welcome Loris Taylor
Loris Taylor:Thank you! Good morning everyone.
Terri Agnew:Welcome Carlton Samuels
Carlton Samuels:Howdy everybody
Terri Agnew:Action Items 13 August 2015: https://community.icann.org/x/K5FCAw
Alan Greenberg:I put in under CWG because of the involvement with DT-F recs
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:@Alan - as far as we are concerned on this call, it doesn't really matter whether in CWG IANA Section or AoB hence faster/easier to move to AoB. But I gather we can bunch Agend
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:Agenda Items 5 & 6 together
Carlton Samuels:There are 2 separate issues w/'Minorty Report'.
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:"high level" yes that works too
Carlton Samuels:Yes. Noted
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:@Tijani -- yes, this was indeed the thinking at the World Summit WSIS
Cheryl LangdonOrr:request clarification,,, yes. binding nature of outcome of an IRP should be linked to Mems etc., and Board reconsider
Cheryl LangdonOrr: that is the intent as far as I am concerned
Sébastien:I have to leave the call for some minutes sorry
Loris Taylor:"would" or "will?" Under no condition would the ALAC support the ... Conditions is a typo?
Alan Greenberg:Thanks Loris
Kimberly Carlson:Welcome Avri
Sébastien:I am back
Loris Taylor:Should or could?
Sébastien:I will look at in more detail
Loris Taylor:"... it could follow that these groups should be denied financial support."
Cheryl LangdonOrr:good text option Lorie...
Cheryl LangdonOrr:sorry Loris
Avri Doria:Are people at all concerend that the power of the SMM to approve fundamental bylaws does not extend to the articles of incorproation?
Avri Doria:... bylaws changes ... article of incorproation changes ...
Carlton Samuels:@Avri: I am concerned but I don't think the present Board will accept that...and I doubt theNTIA would accept that.
Avri Doria:so anything they dont like in the bylaws, they can override in the articles?
Carlton Samuels:Mind you, the proposal gave the NTIA a carrot; it promises to implant the AoC as super articles.
Avri Doria:i do not remember the Acct CCWG ever discussing it. maybe i missed it.
Avri Doria:anyway, was just asking.
Cheryl LangdonOrr:exactly Alan
Carlton Samuels:..and in any event, so long as California + Federal law remains the same, there is always State and District court for redress of grievance.
Cheryl LangdonOrr:correct Alan we do have a secondary selected and indeed are strengthen the issues re letyingbthem know
Cheryl LangdonOrr:this way we have even done morevDDvetc., they are also to be requested to let a NomCom know if they are no longer available or willing to serve
Cheryl LangdonOrr:sorry 'bout the typos
Terri Agnew:Welcome Eduardo Diaz
Eduardo Diaz:Sorry for being late. Got teh meeting times wrong
Carlton Samuels:@Alan: I agree with you. ICANN in current process will be challenged to seat a diversified Board, period. But OCL is right about the optics.
Cheryl LangdonOrr:and an interim is likely to be smaller
Carlton Samuels:@Alan: I think it is the LARGER principle/concept that is important!
Cheryl LangdonOrr:as usual for me Diversity is desirable, aspiration al... but not mandated... however re Geo diversity, the not from the same country if appointment of 2 is fine by me
Carlton Samuels:I'm dropping off now. Bye all
Terri Agnew:goodbye Carlton
Loris Taylor:Is there a definition for "diversity" to accompany the recommendations?
Alan Greenberg:@Loris, there is a long list of examples
Loris Taylor:Thank you Alan
Cheryl LangdonOrr:with IRP's there is real risk of diversity qualified but not experienced
Cheryl LangdonOrr:in terms of ICANN
Cheryl LangdonOrr:exactly Tijani
Cheryl LangdonOrr:agree Alan
Loris Taylor:Signing off. Great work!
Terri Agnew:goodbye Loris
Terri Agnew:@Alan, we are unable to hear you
Alan Greenberg:Did I drop
Terri Agnew:@Alan, yes your audio dropped
Alan Greenberg:I will dial in again. Over to Olivier for next section
Terri Agnew:ICG Report and Comments Solicited: http://www.ianacg.org/
Terri Agnew:Alan is back on audio
Alan Greenberg:I forgot there is one other issue under CCWG. Timing. Will do it under AOB
Terri Agnew:ALAC Statement Drafting Wiki: https://community.icann.org/x/LY1CAw
Cheryl LangdonOrr:agree with you @avri
Gordon Chillcott:I share Tijani's concerns
Cheryl LangdonOrr:revisit this point next call
Gordon Chillcott:Agreed, Cheryl
Avri Doria:some of us tried when creating PTI, but we had to back off.
Avri Doria:it is still before the election.
Eduardo Diaz:Renewing the contract was the rigth thing to do. Agree with Alan that the transition has to happen before the elections
Alan Greenberg:Olivier, I need 2 minutes before Interpreters leave.
Avri Doria:it is interesting that this was done without community consultation.
Eduardo Diaz:@Avri: interesting indeed. But the way I read is is that NTIA really does not do that much during the current process.
Terri Agnew:Next call Friday, 21 August 2015 at 13:00 UTC https://community.icann.org/x/jpZCAw
Heidi Ullrich:Thanks, Everyone!
