May 27, 1999


RESOLVED (Resolution 99.31), that the following Constituencies (as defined in Article VI-B of the Bylaws) are provisionally recognized until the annual meeting of the Board in 1999, to operate in accordance with the proposals received by the Corporation and ordered attached to these minutes:

FURTHER RESOLVED (Resolution 99.32), that the President of the Corporation is directed to work with the Constituencies to amend their proposals to address deficiencies noted by the Board, which amended proposals must include a commitment of the submitting Constituency to hold a new election of Names Council representatives promptly following the approval by the Board of such amended proposal.

FURTHER RESOLVED (Resolution 99.33), that, when such proposals are so amended, the Board should examine such proposals to determine whether the deficiencies have been satisfactorily addressed and whether to extend the recognition today made.

FURTHER RESOLVED (Resolution 99.34), that the Names Council representatives chosen by the provisionally recognized Constituencies shall constitute the provisional Names Council, with all the powers set forth in the Bylaws other than the selection of ICANN Directors (pursuant to Section 2(e) of Article VI-B of the Bylaws), which selection powers will be deferred until such time as the Board determines it has made sufficient final recognitions.


FURTHER RESOLVED (Resolution 99.38), the Board determines that no proposal to create a non-commercial domain name holders Constituency has yet been submitted that is appropriate for recognition.

FURTHER RESOLVED (Resolution 99.39), with the recognition that the interests represented by a non-commercial domain name holders Constituency should be involved as early as possible in the DNSO organization process, the Board urges that the organizers of this Constituency should submit a consensus application for provisional recognition as soon as possible, so that the issue of recognition can be reconsidered by the Board no later than an anticipated meeting during the week of June 21 so that representatives of this Constituency can join the provisional Names Council.
