hello everyone

> For me, Tues is better than Wed to meet at 18:00 CET.

i understand that many of you are already in xmas mode, but for those who
are available, I think it would be good to get together to

a) think about a last round of input for the charter
b) the mandate for the expert review group
c) a procedure/schedule for choosing the chair

@robert: we can look at the website move (and the setup to acceppt

i just had a meeting come up tuesday from 18:00 to 18.30 so I'd prefer a bit
earlier, but let's see who else wants to join

> Dear Biel, dear steering committee peers, dear IRPlers
> @Biel: thanks for managing the election process. we all know that error is

> @the freshly elected steering committee (SC) coleagues:
> (1) CONGRATULATIONS - This is going to be an exciting year and I am very
> much looking forward to working with you.
> (2) we now have to proceed to elect a chair amongst the 14 SC members. The

> consensus. I think it would be ideal to find consensus, but let's open the
> floor for nominations and then deliberate.
>    I would like to nominate Lisa Horner as IRP Chair. Lisa has been

> times she was the leading force behind organizing and running meetings and
> collabowritings. Thanks for all the work you did so far, I hope you accept

> Maybe the easiest would be to have a conference call? I would be happy to

> I would suggest to stick to the 18.00 CET time, but I am of course flexible.
> (3) all steering committee members will have to choose whether you want to
> serve one or two years on the steering committee - please announce your
> choice on the list. Our charter states: "IRP will elect a steering
> committee, at least two of which will serve for one year and at least two of
> which will serve for two years. [...] Nominees will select which term length
> they prefer.
>      I am happy to serve for two years.
> (4) I propose that we setup a separate steering committee mailing-list
> which all SC members give high priority when dealing with their email. We
> all know that email traffic can be overwhelming and to have a method to
> quickly discuss and decide on a time-critical matter (e.g. whether or not to
> endorse an appeal or other document) would be very helpful.
> @all IRPlers: thanks for voting and for your continued interest and
> participation in our cause! The number of 44 votes might sound little,
> however this is a significant organizational development from the 8 folks
> who simply volunteered in the first year of the steering committee's
> existence, and the "improvised steering committee" we setup in the wake of
> the merger last year.
> In closing, I would be very interested to discuss and hear your perception

> forwarded by me on Dec. 14th  ("Re: Proposal for IRP Charter Revision")
> And of course it would be good to have some more community input for the
> Charter itself.
> To a good year for Internet Rights and Principles!
