Please find below, and attached, information on an "expressions of interest" group that is being formed in response to one of the Board resolutions from the Seoul meeting.
Please note that although I am listed as GNSO Observer, I have made no claims to holding such status. I was invited to join in a personal capacity and requested if I could inform the Council of the existence of the group.
If the Council would like me to play the role of observer to this group, I would be happy to do so. If however the Council wishes for someone else to play that role, I would be happy to forward that name to the group and have their initial charter/proposal amended to reflect this.

Objet : Update on "Expressions of Interest" Group
Hi everyone and thank you for either showing up at our initial meeting on October 29 in Seoul, or if you didn't, thanks for expressing your willingness to work with us going forward.
Jothan and I and Liz Williams have been working to get our documents in order. I attach them here:
1. Our charter
2. Our draft proposal, incorporating input taken during our first meeting
If you have comments, please note them and present them at our first teleconference, which will be Monday, Nov. 16.
We have set ourselves a tight schedule (see "timeline" in the proposal), but we may be heartened by the fact that the question at hand is not a complicated one. We foresee having two phone calls over the next 10 days after which a draft proposal will be sent to the ICANN staff for their polish (we are restricted to this methodology by the wording ICANN Board resolution).
In addition to confirming everyone receiving this email, we are reaching out to others to join our group. Our prospective panel is listed in both of the attached documents. We think it's representative of a good cross-section of the ICANN community, as well being geographically diverse, and we believe that these are people who will work to achieve consensus. We don't know how many will agree but we hope most.
One of us will be in touch soon to provide call-in information for our first call, scheduled for Monday.
I am of course available for questions, as is Liz.
Thanks for your participation,
