Dear all,

I will join Tomslin and Stephanie on that matter. That means that I also see a conflict, however, it might manageable if discussions with the concerned  persons can lead to some acceptable agreements, assuming we believe in their good faith. Afterwards, we need to find a way to prevent it from happening again in the future.

But since there is no explicit guidance in the charter, I wanted a collective decision by the PC on this. So I request members to express their views please.

However, we are in tension with ALAC in various areas, notably in their approach to the EPDP and the ACs' role in policy development.  This is an appointments committee....are ALAC representatives going to object to business members who are prominent in ALAC being chosen for roles? seems like a conflict of interest to me, one has to choose an allegiance and stick to it.  I am an ALAC NA member, but I do nothing with ALAC except try to promote better relationships with them, as long as I am performing in an NCSG role.  I think this is the appropriate response, obviously, but I would like to hear someone defend these reappointments on conflict of interest principles.

Naveed Bin Rais and Raymond Mamattah, two of our current representatives to the SSC, both of whom have been selected by the NomCom to serve as ALAC members representing their regions at the end of ICANN72 are also both eligible to serve a second term as NCSG appointed members to the GNSO SSC and are willing to.
