    <p>Alan,</p>
    <p>When Glenn started this thread I made comments thinking they may
      have some impact. But as I look again as Glenn's post, it seems
      that the job post was public and sought applicants. But then you
      said " Although we have asked before, this is the first
      time we have had an opportunity to comment on the actual
      description" I became a bit more unsure of the post's status. Was
      this a post seeking applicants, or do we have a chance to shape
      the job description?<br>
    </p>
    <p>My use of ALS was under the assumption that bottom-up advice was
      being sought. And it probably should have been ALSes.<br>
    </p>
    <p>Best,</p>

      The position was created at the same time as Allen Grogan was
      appointed
      to the role of Chief Contract Compliance Officer in October 2014
      (a
      position he has just announced he will be leaving). For whatever
      reasons,
      it was never filled. Although we have asked before, this is the

      earlier,
      but I don't believe that anyone took them up on that.<br>
      <br>
      I am confused by your reference to "the ALS". Do you mean the

        I like a consumer trust position. But this doesn't say anything
        about who the person reports to, and the openness of the
        positions
        activities. E.G., I'd hope we would be able to see if this is
        focused on
        assuaging the concerns of the pharmaceutical or film industries
        and not
        name sale abuses by registries or registrars.<br>
        <br>
        But I have a question about the origin of this position. Is this
        something ALS requested? Did this arise from a staff initiative
        that is
        thought to respond to needs expressed by the ALS? Or otherwise?
        Did the
        ALS have an opportunity to set the scope of this position?<br>
