Co-chair yes, but either we wait until we have clarity on the funding issue
or we restrict our selection to one of the five people selected to be

Betreff: [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

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

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.
