>> Subject: ALAC Statement on proposed accountability models
>> In its formal response to the CCWG-Accountability proposal issued in
>> August 2015, the ALAC said that it could support the model being proposed,
>> but preferred something far less complex and lighter-weight, and that we
>> saw no need for the level of enforceability that the proposal provided.
>> Moreover, the ALAC had specific concerns with the budget veto and the
>> apparent lack of participation of perhaps a majority of AC/SOs.
>> In light of the reconsideration of a designator model by the CCWG, along
>> with the recommendations of the Saturday morning break-out sessions, the
>> ALAC felt that a revised statement was in order. Accordingly we decided, by
>> a unanimous vote of the 14 ALAC members present (with 1 not present), to
>> withdraw support for the Membership model.
>> I want to make it clear that this is not a "red line" decision. Should a
>> Membership model become one that is generally advocated by the CCWG, and
>> supported by a supermajority of Board directors (who ultimately MUST
>> support any changes that they will be called upon to approve, else they
>> would be in violation of their fiduciary duty), then the ALAC reserves its
>> right to support such a model.
>> Alan Greenberg
