This is a Consensus Call for ALAC Members.

As you know, the Charter for the Accountability CCWG is under review 
and is expected to be ratified (with or without modification) by most 
ACs and SOs in the coming few weeks (see 
https://community.icann.org/x/JjDxAg). Accordingly we will need to 
select Members for this CCWG as representatives of the ALAC.

Following a discussion with the ALT, I would like to suggest the 
following that I hope you will all agree with.

- We are allowed five Members on the CCWG and as per our standard 
practice, we will attempt to select one per region.

- Members of the Accountability CCWG will need to be familiar with 
ICANN and its various current accountability mechanisms (all well 
documented) or as per the CCWG Charter, must otherwise have expertise 
in related areas 

- Also according to the Charter, Members must be willing "Commit to 
actively participate in the activities of the CCWG-Accountability on 
an ongoing and longterm basis".

- To ensure that the ALAC representatives meet these criteria, there 
will be a call for Expressions of Interest (EoI) issued which will 
then be evaluated.

- Olivier has agreed to lead the selection process as he has for 
several other recent selections. He will convene a group based on the 
one that made the previous selections, but in consultation with the 
RALOs, may replace those members who:
     - are no longer willing to serve;
     - previously volunteered but did not meet their commitments
     - plan to submit an EoI to be a Member in the Accountability CCWG

NOTE that participation in the CCWG is open to all, and the only 
difference between Members and other Participants is that Members may 
take part in polls (if any) to guide the CCWG and Members may need to 
interact with the ALAC or other At-Large groups and potentially take 
direction from them. To start, the CCWG will be populated with 
Participants who indicated an interest in the defunct Accountability 
Cross Community group (https://community.icann.org/x/TwHxAg).

Do we have agreement that this process should be followed to select 
the Accountability CCWG Members representing the ALAC?

Please respond by 23:59 UTC on Monday, 10 November 2014.
