http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-01feb07.htm

ICANN’s Nominating Committee invites Statements of Interest from the Internet community as it seeks qualified candidates to assist in ICANN’s technical and policy coordination role. Interested individuals are invited to submit a Statement of Interest to this year’s Committee for the following positions:

  • Three members of the ICANN Board of Directors
  • Two members of the Council of the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO)
  • One member of the Council of the Country-Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO)
  • Three members of the At Large Advisory Committee (ALAC)

ICANN’s Nominating Committee (NomCom) 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. 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.

Individuals selected by the Nominating Committee will 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. Considering the broad public interest, nominees will work to achieve the goals towards which ICANN is dedicated in order to facilitate the Internet’s critically important societal functions.

Current Board members who have been selected by the Nominating Committee include: Vint Cerf (Chairman), Susan Crawford, Joichi Ito, Njeri Rionge, Vanda Scartezini, Rajasekhar Ramaraj, Steven Goldstein and Roberto Gaetano (see, http://www.icann.org/general/board.html).
