Update on CCWG-Accountability Recommendations
The main objective for this call was to review and update the Board position for each of the CCWG-Accountability recommendations, based upon the CCWG-Accountability's second reading conclusions. The Board considered the status of each of the recommendations, with a particular focus on the issues that the Board flagged in its comments on the Third Draft Proposal as matters of high concern.
The Board identified the following areas that it would provide further input to the CCWG, including:
Inclusion of Human Right commitment in the Bylaws; Reconsideration Requests; AoC Reviews; SO/AC Accountability and structural reviews; Board consideration of GAC Advice; and escalation timeframes.
The Board agreed that further conversation was needed on Mission Statement, and discussed updates on the waiver/indemnification issue.
No resolutions were considered or approved during the Informational Call.
