ICANN seeks 7 leadership positions

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' (ICANN) Nominating Committee (NomCom) is seeking seven applications from interested individuals for key leadership positions, reports ITRealms.

Applications, ITRealms gathered were invited for some seven positions including three members of the ICANN Board of Directors; two At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) representatives with one each from the Europe and North America regions; one member of the Council of the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO); and one member of the Council of the Country-Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO).

A press statement from NomCom and made available to ITRealms, indicates that individuals selected by the NomCom will have a unique opportunity to work with accomplished colleagues from around the globe and help shape the Internet's technical coordination and policy development.

Those selected, NomCom said, would also gain valuable insights and experience from working across boundaries of knowledge, responsibility, culture and geography. They will be making a valuable public service contribution towards the functioning and evolution of this essential global resource. 

ITRealms recalls that guided by the broad public interest, those selected would work to fulfill ICANN's mission to coordinate the global Internet's systems of unique identifiers, and in particular to ensure its stable and secure operation.

All applications, NomCom further said are confidential and should be received by 20 March 2016 for full consideration, while selections will be announced in August or September 2016 with successful candidates slated to take up their positions following ICANN's Annual Meeting in October 2016, whereas fluency in English is a requirement for all positions.
