Re: #1 meeting of 2010

Hi everyone

@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

Attached is a calendar event for this conference. 
Conference Room Number: 3878018

Subject: #1 meeting of 2010 

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?

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 

(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!
