I PIR structure and governance update

Lynn updated the board on the status of the discussions with the PIR board members and reminded the board of the discussion during the recent strategic retreat.

The board discussed PIR marketing efforts and the alignment of mission between PIR and the ISOC. Lynn said that she thinks the missions of the two organizations are fully aligned.

Lynn reminded the board that there is an open slot on the PIR board due to the fact that David Maher accepted of the job of PIR VP for Law and Policy.

The board discussed the issue of the incentives for PIR to grow the registry business. Some people felt that there was little incentive for PIR to grow their business and others felt that since the missions were aligned the incentives should be OK for PIR as they are OK for ISOC. The board felt that this was an area that needed further exploration.

Lynn noted that it was about time to kick off the election cycle for PIR Board members and a discussion ensued re; ISOC’s strategy for filling those positions.

Steve moved that the ISOC Board select a replacement for David Maher and that the board appoint Glenn Ricart. At this point Glenn left the call so that the board could discuss the motion. The motion was seconded. The board discussed the motion. The motion was agreed to unanimously.

Resolution: 04-01
Resolved: That Glenn Ricart be appointed to the PIR board.

Steve moved that Glenn’s appointment be for the remainder of David’s term, which extends to December 31st 2006. Margaret seconded the motion. The motion was agreed to unanimously except for Veni, who abstained.

Resolution: 04-02
Resolved: That the term of Glenn Ricart’s appointment be for the remainder of David Maher’s term.

The board then discussed different possibilities for filling the slots on the PIR board that will be coming open at the end of the year.

II IETF restructuring update

Lynn reported that the IETF was continuing on the path towards Scenario O that Harald and Leslie announced. Steve asked when we would understand the financial implications of the IETF decision. Lynn said that she had only gotten rough preliminary figures from Harald and Leslie and that she would have the best possible figures available for the budget but that the projected requirements were apt to be high level rather than detailed.

III ISOC board vacancy

Lynn then raised the question of filling Larry Landweber’s seat on the ISOC board. The consensus was that the seat should be filled now rather than waiting until the next election cycle.

Following past precedent, Steve moved that Stephen Squires be appointed to fill out Larry Landweber’s term on the ISOC board, which extends to the summer of 2007. Glenn seconded the motion. During the discussion on the motion it was pointed out that Steve was the runner-up in the recent election for the AC board slots. Also, during the discussion on the motion it was agreed that the appointment would become effective at the close of this board meeting. The motion was unanimously agreed to.

Resolution: 04-03
Resolved: That Stephen Squires be appointed to fill out Larry Landweber’s term on the ISOC board.

The chair said that he would entertain a motion to adjourn. Glenn so moved. The motion was unanimously agreed to and the meeting adjourned at 11:25am.
