Hi IRPlers

Should we meet this thrusday at 18.00 CET or 9am PST? I think it would be
important to discuss this years work.

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
> I can provide a telco where people can dial-in using a local land-line or
we can use the conf-call system we used before?

> best

>> Subject: Re: [IRP] IRP-DC elections results
>> Dear Biel, dear steering committee peers, dear IRPlers
>> @Biel: thanks for managing the election process. we all know that error is
>> human and while i would have appreciated to work with Heike in the steering
>> committee, I am positive that her participation (as well as that of the
>> other candidates who ran) will be very valuable and valued no matter in
>> whether they are in the steering committee or not.
>> @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
>> charter simply says elect, which in my understanding could be via vote or
>> 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
>> continuously furthering the development of our coalition and in fact many
>> 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
>> the nomination.
>> Maybe the easiest would be to have a conference call? I would be happy to
>> meet next tuesday or wednesday? Given that we have two SC members from Asia
>> 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
>> of the mandate / schedule for the Expert Review & Consolidation of our
>> "Charter of Human Rights and Principles on the Internet" sent by Meryem and
>> 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!
