Fwd: Open Call for ICANN Board of Directors
I apologize for the non-operational mail but I wanted to get this out to as many people as possible. We are also holding elections for the Address Council of the ASO if you're interested. Info is available at http://www.arin.net/aso/aso.htm
>CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR ICANN BOARD OF DIRECTORS
>This is an open call for nominations of interested individuals to serve on the
>Board of Directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
>Numbers (ICANN), as a nominee of the ICANN Address Supporting Organization
>ICANN is the non-profit corporation that was formed to take over
>responsibility for the IP address space allocation, protocol parameter
>assignment, domain name system management, and root server system
>previously performed under U.S. Government contract by IANA and other
>entities. The Board will be composed of nineteen Directors, including nine
>At-Large Directors, nine to be nominated by Supporting Organizations, and
>the President/CEO (ex officio). Further details on the composition and
>responsibilities of ICANN can be found at http://www.icann.org. Prospective
>nominees are strongly urged to read the ICANN Corporate Documents and
>other ICANN published material, as well as the adopted ASO proposal,
>located at http://www.arin.net/asoproposal.htm.
>The ASO will have the responsibility for nominating three ICANN Directors.
>This responsibility will, in the normal course of events, be conducted through
>an open process managed by the Address Council, a body created by the
>ASO to manage its business.
>For the initial ASO nominations to the ICANN Board, the ASO Address Council
>will nominate three Directors to serve terms of 1, 2, and 3 years. This
>process has been initiated by the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs)
>open call for nominations. The process of selecting the initial ICANN
>from the ASO nominations will be defined and managed by the Address Council.
>ASO Process for Nominating ICANN Directors
>Any individual may be nominated within this process, with the exception of
>any official of a national government or a multinational entity established
>by treaty or other agreement between national governments (ICANN ByLaws
>Art. V., Sec 5.). Self-nominations are permitted.
>However, no member of staff of an RIR is eligible to be appointed to the ICANN
>Board, and no ASO-appointed Director may serve simultaneously on the
>Address Council. The Directors appointed by the ASO will not represent the
>ASO on the Board, but will function as full Directors of ICANN.
