TechOps – New RrSG sub-committee

After some discussions over the last couple of months, the Registrar Stakeholder Group decided to try something new and created a new sub-committee for technical and operational matters – TechOps.

The RrSG want to create room for more people from each member to get involved on the day to day business, to address technical and operational issues and review potential impacts based on new policies.

This sub-committee has no set agenda rather it should be an open space to exchange experiences, discuss ideas, provide feedback and raise issues that we can follow up with ICANN staff, RySG, other constituencies and 3rd parties.

The RrSG would like to ask our members to check internally if some of their software developers, product managers and/or other colleagues might want to join. If so, please let us know.

You may find more details about the TechOps Sub-Committee here.

New RrSG Slack

One of the things that various members have raised is in relation to communication. Therefore, we want to improve it and thought some members may find it useful to have our own RrSG slack instance.

If you are a member and want to join our slack, please let us know.

ICANN 57 – APAC Registrar Lunch

The RrSG and ICANN Engagement team co-hosted an outreach lunch for APAC Registrars at ICANN 57.  The lunch was well attended and provided an excellent opportunity for APAC Registrars to get to know key RrSG members and ICANN staff and voice their particular opinions and concerns.  We look forward to working together further in the future.

Call for Nominations for GNSO Council Representatives

Two of the RrSG’s GNSO Council Representatives resigned earlier this month pursuant to Charter rules.  As a result, a call for nominations has been issued to fill the remaining terms of Volker Greimann and Jennifer Gore’s positions.   Nominations will be accepted until 23:59 UTC on Thursday, 21 July 2016.   The Charter requires that individuals nominated for GNSO Council representative must be from a region other than North America, which is already represented by Council Chair, James Bladel.  As a reminder, any Member’s Registered Representative may nominate another for an elected position. The nomination must be seconded by another Member. The nominee must accept the nomination and provide the required conflict of interest statement. The list of nominees will be published following the close of the nomination period.
