I. Opening Comments
Raul opened the meeting at 7:03 AM. He asked if anyone had any conflict of interest with any of the agenda items. No one indicated any conflicts.

II. Approval of the Minutes of the April 16 Exec-Com meeting
The excom approved the minutes as submitted.

III. Review Orientation Plan for New Trustees
Lynn reviewed the three-session orientation plan that has been followed for new board members in the past. The excom decided to schedule the third orientation session for Friday at noon.

IV. Review the August 4-5 Board Meeting Agenda
The excom reviewed the proposed meeting agenda and suggested changes.

V. PIR Update
Lynn provided an update of PIR activities for the excom.  She noted that the TLDs PIR had proposed in the ICANN process did not have any competition, which makes the process easier.  Lynn also reported that PIR was undertaking a discussion of strategic directions and cash distribution.

VI. Proposed Amendments to the By-Laws
Eric reported that the By-Laws committee is circulating an updated draft of the revised By-Laws and hopes to have a document ready for distribution to the full board soon.  The excom discussed the comments received so far on the previous draft version.

VII. AOB
(a). Review 2012 Board Work Plan

The excom discussed the schedule for the October meeting. Raul noted that the doodle poll indicated that the best meeting location and time was October 20-21 in Toronto.  Lynn noted that the ICANN meeting was now going to send on Thursday instead of Friday and wondered if the Board would rather meet on October 19-20 instead of 20-21.  Raul said he would pose the question to the board list.

(b). Short Board Call to receive the Elections Committee Report

The excom requested that Lynn cause a Doodle poll to be run to find out the best time for a very short board meeting to approve the election committee report.

Raul noted that this was the last meeting of this excom since there would be a new excom formed at the Vancouver board meeting.  He thanked the excom members for their work.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:20 AM.
