  ccNSO Members: remember to vote!

Your vote is important!

The 2004 rules specify that in order for the new rules to be adopted, a 
vote by at least 86 ccNSO members is required, of which at least 66% 
needs to be in favour.

Only ccTLD Managers who are members of the ccNSO are eligible to vote.

Ballots were sent to the e-mail address of the primary contacts of each 
ccNSO Member, as listed in the ccNSO Members database.

Reflections on ccNSO evolution

Ensuring ccNSO governance is fit for purpose

Chris Disspain and David McAuley are experienced members of the 
community, who actively contribute to the work of the ccNSO. When the 
internal ccNSO Rules were created in 2004, Chris was ccNSO Council 
Chair. Together with a small number of colleagues, he wrote the 2004 
Rules. He also facilitated a number of sessions on their review. David 
McAuley (picture on the right) is a member of the ccNSO Guidelines 
Review Committee (GRC) since 2014. David chaired the GRC subgroup that 
drafted a new set of Internal Rules for the ccNSO. Under David's 
leadership, the group held various consultations with the ccNSO 
membership to identify issues, find solutions and to update about 
progress. A ccNSO vote to determine whether the ccNSO Members adopt the 
proposed rules closes 6 April 2022.

In this interview, David and Chris reflect on the process that led to 
the new proposed rules and their respective roles. They also share their 
advice to those who consider joining a ccNSO Working Group. David 
encourages all to help to ensure that ccNSO continues to be vibrant, 
organized, and well managed, with Chris adding: "You do not need to be 
an expert to help!"

  ccNSO & DNS Abuse

  Council adopted the Roadmap

At its meeting on 10 March, the ccNSO Council adopted the Roadmap 
<https://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001wBdk065Jx807AeOpuNLdJ2CoEvWIW4rF83_ZVvlxp2NverRtaM0TubEgXHdxhSV484mzlCL-CBYQoR9h5Lmi93nUHulQ7dvnbr83LG9q6tn89y_fgrusGAjnSNLwarYysrDFGVVvSE3kxMFD_myopfWGZtQPXzDDeiLD97kjHMl9Yb_LbDEAOvIrjEjjZLsqXKMH8KVR2iFX4ZQx5fhwDA==&c=MK3L_bkyM-JijuV7fuqglQqLgSF7ZKjHOu8rBPX8_emu-b4dvi_AXw==&ch=tod5Zx6fISlgM-AvWHpDr_dihr9r67FsJYhQC4X7GFBBOTQKNhthnA==> for 
the role of the ccNSO with respect to DNS Abuse.

During ICANN73, ccTLDs suggested areas for improvement to the envisaged 
ccNSO DNS Abuse Standing Committee (DASC) draft Terms of Reference, 
specifically to include safeguards with respect to the scope of its 
mandate. By COB on 31 March, the amended Terms of Reference 
will become available too. As a next step, Council will start looking 
for volunteers to join as members of the DASC.

Roadmap highlights

The Roadmap provides a high level overview of the activities and phasing 
on how the ccNSO could be involved in the discussion and work around 
mitigating the impact of DNS Abuse. The main areas of activities are:

  * Enhance sharing of information and practices for the benefit of ccTLDs
  * Showcase ccTLD efforts
  * Reinforce the message about the nature of ccTLDs and the (limited)
    role of the ccNSO when addressing other stakeholders in the DNS
  * Share DNS Abuse related metrics

To coordinate these activities, the Roadmap suggests creating the ccNSO 
DNS Abuse Standing Committee (DASC). This Committee would consist of 
ccTLD representatives. The Committee is expected to create and maintain 
a repository of useful resources for ccTLD managers. DASC will also 
explore creating a dedicated email list for ccTLDs to share experiences 
and stay informed with respect to DNS Abuse. Subscription to the email 
list would be voluntary.
