The GNSO Council is the forum where all six of the GNSO constituencies meet together with certain nominated delegates to discuss domain name policy issues. The BC elects two representatives from different geographical regions to the Council. Both representatives are members of the BC executive committee (see above). GNSO Council Representatives are Marie Pattullo and Scott McCormick.

Credentials Committee

The Credentials Committee checks that applicant members meet the criteria for membership as laid out in the BC Charter. Based on this information, it then recommends membership or whether the applicant would be better served by a more appropriate constituency.

Issue and representation

One rapporteur (R) is appointed to lead on each major policy issue, to draft position papers when required and act as a spokesperson on the issue. For most active policy groups there is also one support (S) who may deputise for the rapporteur, and one or more observers (O). Council has a variety of voting rules for its different groups. PDP after the issue name means there is an active policy development process.
