On participation of SO/ACs need positive confirmation. "agree to participate" must be "take action to participate"
GAC participation would not be permanent but on a case by case
--> Every SO/AC has right not to express a view. Binary choice is whether listed in Bylaws as SO/AC that is
entitled to exercise view
If each SO/AC can decide on a case-by-case basis, will the escalation model reflect the change in the number
of supporting votes needed
for enforcement? E.g. if only 3 SO/ACs are participating.
--> No - threshold is designed to evidence wide community support. If only two ACs supporting removing director,
power would not have effect.
Unclear how to change Article of Incorporation to include Empowered Community. We need to decide on this
--> This will be discusssed on call on Tuesday. Lawyers will be asked as well.
Community forum; in-person or virtually? Concerns about virtually and 15 days.
We are incorporating AOC into Bylaws - not reviews (rec. 9) - core proposal, not annex
Annex 4 - details missing in removal of entire Board
Brenda Brewer: (11/22/2015 12:52) Welcome to WP1 Meeting #32 on 23 November 2015 @ 07:00 UTC! Please
note that chat sessions are being archived and follow the ICANN Expected Standards of Behavior:
Brenda Brewer: (11/23/2015 00:59) Kavouss is on audio only at this time.
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support: (00:59) hello all
Alan Greenberg: (01:00) And top of the morning (or whatever) to all.
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support: (01:01) reminder to mute your mikes if not speaking
Brenda Brewer: (01:01) Thomas Rickert is on audio only at this time
Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (01:07) "If fewer than 5 of ICANN's Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees agree to participate..."
Alan Greenberg: (01:14) I think that EASCH AC/SO will decide on a case by case basis whether to participate in each specific case.
Aarti Bhavana: (01:16) If each SO/AC can decide on a case-by-case basis, will the escalation model reflect the change in the
number of supporting votes needed for enforcement? E.g. if only 3 SO/ACs are participating.
Aarti Bhavana: (01:17) Sorry if I missed this discussion
Alan Greenberg: (01:18) If only 3 choose to say something in a particular case, and they all say yes, and the threshold is 3 for
that power, then it is exercised!
Aarti Bhavana: (01:19) Okay, thanks
Aarti Bhavana: (01:28) The norm should be virtual community forum, unless it can be clubbed with an ICANN meeting, or it is
absolutely crucial for a f2f meeting
Jordan Carter (.nz, rapporteur): (01:30) Aarti, good suggestion.
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support: (01:30) noted and we will do so
Bernard Turcotte Staff Support: (01:33) bye all
Aarti Bhavana: (01:33) Thanks for this call. Bye!
