At-Large Delegates Needed for ICANN 2005 Nominating Committee

The At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) is seeking recommendations/volunteers for delegates to ICANN's 2005 Nominating Committee (NomCom), which selects individuals to serve on ICANN's Board and in other leadership positions.  At-Large delegates will fill five seats on the NomCom.  NomCom information is posted at <>.  For more information on At-Large delegate positions, or to receive a "statement of interest form" for potential At-Large delegates, send an email to <>.  Statements of interest are requested by 31 December 2004.

Each year, the NomCom is responsible for selecting individuals to serve in key leadership positions within the ICANN structure.  Last year, for example, the NomCom filled the following positions: 3 seats on ICANN's Board of Directors, with terms through 2007; 1 seat on the GNSO Council, with a term through 2006; 2 seats on the ALAC (for Europe and North America regions), with terms through 2006; and 3 seats on the ccNSO Council, with terms ending in 2005, 2006, and 2007.

With significantly more seats on the NomCom than any other constituency, At-Large will have five NomCom delegates, one from each geographic region (Africa, Asia/Australia/Pacific, Europe, Latin America/Caribbean Islands, and North America). The ALAC has asked the At-Large Structures in each region (and groups that have applied to be ALSs) to recommend an individual to serve on the NomCom from their region.  After receiving recommendations and input, the ALAC will appoint At-Large delegates in January.
