ICANN shops for NomCom members

The Nominating Committee (NomCom) of the Internet Corporation for Assign Names and Numbers (ICANN), is shopping for six interested members of the Internet community to fill leadership positions in its board.

ICANN is an internationally organised, public benefit, non-profit corporation dedicated to: preserving the operational security and stability of the Internet; promoting competition; achieving broad representation of global Internet communities; and supporting the development of policies appropriate to its mission through bottom-up, consensus-based processes.

While it’s Nominating Committee (Nom Com) is an independent committee tasked with selecting a majority of the members of ICANN’s Board of Directors and other positions within ICANN’s Supporting Organisations.

In the request of statements of interest, ICANN seeks qualified candidates to assist in the organisation’s technical and policy coordination role.

A copy of the request made available to Champion Infotel, stated that interested individuals should submit a Statement-of-Interest to this year’s committee for the posts of two members of the ICANN Board of Directors, a member for the council of the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO), and council of the Country-Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) respectively as well as two members of the At Large Advisory Committee (ALAC).

According to the request, individuals selected by the NomCom would have a unique opportunity to work with accomplished colleagues from around the globe, address the Internet’s intriguing technical coordination problems and policy development challenges with diverse functional, cultural, and geographic dimensions, and gain valuable insights and experience from working across boundaries of knowledge, responsibility and perspective.

Those selected will gain the satisfaction of making a valuable public service contribution towards the continued function and evolution of an essential global resource.

ICANN also said that considering the broad public interest, nominees would work to achieve the goals towards which the body is dedicated in order to facilitate the Internet’s critically important societal functions.

Currently board members who have been selected by the Nominating Committee include Harald Tveit Alvastrand, Susan Crawford, Roberto Gaetano, Steven Goldstein, Dennis Jennings, Rajasekhar Ramaraj, Njeri Rionge, and Jean-Jacques Subrenat.
