Summary


A new member becomes eligible to join the RySG on the "effective date" of the Registry Agreement (RA) with ICANN.  The entity that executes the RA is the member.  If the same entity executes more than one RA, that entity remains a single member.
 
If the entity that executes the RA is owned or controlled by a parent (whether operator itself or sponsor) with multiple subsidiaries, each subsidiary may be a member, but the list of members will indicate the affiliation, and the operator or sponsor will have a single vote. For example, if Danish and Nutroll are each signatories of  an RA and are controlled by Sweetrolls, Inc., the membership list will show “Danish dba Sweetrolls, Inc.” and “Nutroll dba Sweetrolls, Inc.”. Sweetrolls, Inc. will have a single vote in the RySG as owner or sponsor of Danish and Nutroll. The members’ delegate could be a representative of Sweetrolls, Inc
