[NCSG-PC] [council] Supporting Document for November Council Meeting Agenda Item 4: Revised GNSO Councilor Job Description for the Nominating Committee

Thanks for your hard work on this job description.  NCSG has had a brief 
discussion on this topic, and believes that we have taken a slight wrong 
turn in some of the revisions.  We believe that it is important for 
Nomcom to seek fresh eyes and talent for the Nomcom representatives on 
Council.  The job description should therefore not insist, as this new 
version does, on the importance of experience.  Understanding of the 
role of the GNSO, certainly, but experience in the ICANN MS model and 
its structures is certainly NOT necessary or even desireable.  WE want 
fresh eyes, different experience and ideas that can help us improve.

There is obviously an issue if former Councillors start to apply for a 
Nomcom seat on Council when their terms are up, in terms of upsetting 
the balance of stakeholder group/constituency representation.  We are 
not looking for a prohibition of Councillors coming back as Nomcom, just 
to remove the emphasis on previous GNSO/ICANN experience.

I hope that I have expressed the views of my SG adequately in these 
comments and the attached markup, and suggest we have a thorough 
discussion of this topic in our meeting this week.
