Hi Oksana and all,
you are perfectly right that the existing Bylaws are far too long, complicate and partly contradictory and not really useful in many respects. And it would be a great job for a Board sub-committee to revise them until the next GA in London.
Regarding your 1st point: In our last Bylaws amendments (in May 2011) the terms of our ALAC members were already aligned with usual ALAC terms and ICANN schedules of the AGM at the end of year. For RALO Officers I do not see this need or particular advantages.
Your 2nd point regarding voting mechanism for Officers: This can be done already now -- any member at a GA can suggest or request a secret ballot for any position even if there is one candidate only. Olivier when chairing this B 9 part in Lisbon was asking for this but nobody suggested it.
Your 3rd point: there will be a detailed list of duties and responsibilities for the Secretariat function in future and more for additional and all functions once we will introduce the Vice-Chair. I think I knew quite well what were and are my tasks and responsibilities when I was selected some years ago and know the high expectations for the next term.
Just my 2 cents.
