Board delegates to President authority to give notice by Board to Chair of Governmental Advisory Committee.
Whereas, Article XI, Section 2(1)(h) of the bylaws states:The Board shall notify the Chair of the Governmental Advisory Committee in a timely manner of any proposal raising public policy issues on which it or any of ICANN's supporting organizations or advisory committees seeks public comment, and shall take duly into account any timely response to that notification prior to taking action;
Whereas, awaiting individual action by the Board in giving notice at each stage of public comment within the ICANN's process for adopting policies would result in significant delays in the process;
Resolved [03.43] that the Board delegates to the President the authority to give notice by the Board to the Chair of the Governmental Advisory Committee under Article XI, Section 2(1)(h) of the bylaws of proposals deemed to raise public-policy issues.
