 In your first e-mail you said that Heather Forrest is already appointed/nominated by the GNSO and then this file is closed, but (see below)


> — they are just different calls for the same purpose?

But I do think that the file is not yet closed, since the GNSO is looking to fill up to 7 positions and Tomslin’s email to encourage NCGS candidacy is still valid in my opinion. From your first e-mail I got confused for the fact that here was only one call and one position/slot to fill. Sorry for misunderstanding.


> The GNSO call was issued to fulfil the requirements of the general call for AC/SO to appoint mentors and yes people applied individually and SSC is considering them right now. The deadline for individual applications passed and now the SSC is considering the candidates to meet the requirements of the general call to appoint the mentors until the end of January.

>> If you want to clarify with staff, I would of course go ahead but I don’t quite understand where the confusion is coming from and what “the call is open” means. The selection deadline for AC/SO is 31 of January, not the application deadline. This is why SSC is dealing with this now because the selection has to be confirmed by the GNSO.

The announcement, like Bruna said, suggests it is different from the appointment of Heather and what the SSC is currently working on especially since the announcement said individuals could not apply directly to GNSO for this one, and in addition, the call is still open.
