President & CEO’s Report to the Board-L. St.Amour

10:00-10:45 Review of proposed By-Law changes-B. Carpenter 
The purpose of this session is to change the by-laws such that we have the flexibility needed to allow us to operate in a responsive manner: The proposed changes intend to achieve four things:

  1. transfer responsibility for defining the election constituency from the By-Laws to the Board of Trustees.
  2. give the Board the ability to appoint some Trustees.
  3. give the Board the ability to define classes of individual membership without modifying the By-Laws each time.
  4. change the majority needed for governance matters from 4/5 to 2/3, since with two or three members absent from each meeting, 4/5 has proved impractical. Note: We will be missing at least 3 Board members at this BoT.

Internet Society Advisory Council Meeting

Sunday, 9 December 2001

Lunch with BoT


AC Meeting

Dear Advisory Council Member,

The Internet Society Advisory Council (ISOC-AC) is made up of two representatives from each of the organizational members of ISOC. The role of the ISOC-AC is to act in an advisory role to the Board of Trustees (BoT) of ISOC.

Since its inception around 1993, the “active” part of the ISOC-AC has consisted of a handful of individuals whose main role has been to draft proposals for what the AC might do in relation to the BoT. To date, limited concrete action has resulted from these deliberations.

I would like to invite you to a meeting on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2001 from noon (lunch with the BoT) until 5pm, in room Riviera 13 at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah. The meeting is being held in conjunction with the 52nd IETF meeting. The BoT will hold meetings all day Saturday, December 8th, and Sunday morning until noon. You are encouraged to attend the BoT meeting as an observer. This will be an important BoT meeting where structural changes will be discussed, so it will be particularly important to attend this meeting prior to the AC meeting.

The objectives for the ISOC-AC meeting are:

  • Discuss the future structure of the Advisory Council.
  • Discuss the operation of the ISOC-AC: How can members best interact with the BoT, what are the mechanisms? What are members looking for in terms of information coming FROM the BoT?
  • Can we identify some “new blood” on the ISOC-AC? Can we start an active mailing list? How can we awaken the ISOC-AC from its currently dormant state?
  • Should we rename the ISOC-AC to The ISOC Organizational Members Council to more accurately reflect its composition?

If you have specific proposals, comments or presentations that you would like to make available prior to this meeting, please contact me as soon as possible. I would also very much like to know if you are planning, or not planning, to be in Salt Lake City for this meeting, and this will also help ISOC staff plan for room logistics, so please drop me a note.

I look forward to seeing you in Salt Lake City.
