Resolution Text: 

Whereas, a GNSO Policy Development Process Work Team (PDP-WT) has been working to develop a new policy development process within the GNSO that is more effective and responsive to ICANN's policy development needs.

Whereas, on 26 October 2011 the GNSO Council considered the Final Report of the PDP-WT and unanimously approved the recommendations within the Final Report.

Whereas, the implementation of the GNSO PDP improvements require amending Annex A of the ICANN Bylaws, and public comment is necessary prior to Board consideration.

Resolved, (2011.10.28.34), the Board approves the initiation of a public comment period of not less than 30 days on the proposed amendments to Annex A of the ICANN Bylaws.

Rationale for Resolution: 

This resolution is necessary to allow the Board to consider community input prior to approving amendments to the ICANN Bylaws. The proposed revisions are presented through the GNSO Council and are the result of a community working team's work. As required for assessment within the Affirmation of Commitments, there is no security and stability impact on the DNS nor any affect on ICANN's fiscal resources as a result of this action.
