ICANN shops for 8 leadership positions

The Los Angeles-based Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is shopping for some eight new leadership positions including the three board members, reports ITRealms.
ICANN Nominating Committee (NomCom) gave this insight Wednesday, inviting interested individuals to submit an expression of interest and/or recommend candidates for ICANN's key leadership positions. 

ITRealms also reports that selected individuals will have a unique opportunity to work with accomplished colleagues from around the globe to help shape the Internet's technical coordination and policy development. 

ICANN NomCom also disclosed that the deadline to submit application is 19 March 2018.

“We are inviting applications and recommendations for the following positions:  Three members of the ICANN Board of Directors; Two representatives to the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) – one from Europe and one from the North America region; One member of the Council of the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO); and Two members of the Council of the Country-Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO). 

ITRealms recalls that currently, the eight NomCom selected Board members comprised Maarten Botterman, Cherine Chalaby, Sarah Deutsch, Avri Doria, Rafael Lito Ibarra, Khaled Koubaa, George Sadowsky, and Lousewies Van der Laan.

Sources at ICANN revealed that guided by the broad public interest, those selected will work to fulfill ICANN's mission to coordinate the global Internet's system of unique identifiers, and in particular, to ensure its stable and secure operation.

“They will gain valuable insights and experience working on topics including knowledge, responsibility, culture, and geography. They will make a valuable public service contribution toward the functioning and evolution of this essential global resource,” our source declared.
