[IRP] #1 meeting of 2010
Wed Jan 6 17:04:24 EET 2010
@Robert of course you are right about finding a time that works for most -
it's just a pretty tedious process and you'll never accomodate everybody
(I'd suggest we alternate every month)
oh and some agenda points are in my initial mail
I setup a skype confcall to which you can also dial-in from phones

>>> 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
>>> 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!
