Dear Alan,


1.       Yes, we need to appoint a co-chair for the CCWG.

2.       I agree with your approach of selecting the co-chair

Objet : [ALAC] Co-Chair, Accountability CCWG


The Charter of the Accountability CCWG allows the ALAC to name a 

Co-Chair. There is no rule regarding whether the Co-Chair is one of 

the five Members that we plan to select or a non-Member Participant.


If we select a person as Co-Chair who is not one of our formal 

Members, there is a question whether that person would be funded to 

travel to any face-to-face meeting (for the IANA CWG, only Members 

have been funded). I have asked whether a non-Member Co-Chair will be 

funded, but as yet no reply.


My thoughts on the matter are:


1. We definitely want have a Co-Chair select by the ALAC.

2. We want to pick that person based on their ability to carry out 

the job and to dedicate sufficient time to the process.

3. If ICANN will NOT fund a participant for travel, we should 

restrict our selection to one of the five people selected to be Members

4. If a non-Member Co-Chair WILL be funded, Olivier's selection 

committee should identify possible candidates (ie candidates not 

selected as Members).

5. From this pool, Members and other possible Chairs, some may not 

willing to act as Co-Chair.

6. The ALT should review the candidates and recommend the person to 

be named Co-Chair (this is inline with other selections we have done 

recently, the candidates would need to grant the ALT access to their 

EoIs to be considered).


At this point, there is nothing we can really do until the selection 

is done and we know the situation regarding funding.


I welcome thoughts on whether we should select a CCWG Co-Chair, and 

if so, how do we go about doing this if different from my scenario above.
