Background  Information

The  leadership of  NARALO  has  been informed that Garth Bruen, NARALO ALAC  representative  will not be travelling to the ICANN 57 meeting scheduled for 3-9 November in Hyderabad.  To be clear, he is not stepping down from his  ALAC  position and this is one time trip substitution. The person chosen will not necessarily be voting on ALAC issues.

In response to this request by Garth Bruen, NARALO’s  August  monthly meeting held on August 8th, 2016 made a public request to NARALO ALSes who attended the meeting to self-nominate for the trip. It was also noted that the nominees would be required to submit a statement of interest (SOI) and that they fully understand the obligations and time commitments.  

A Selection Committee of Glenn McKnight, Judith Hellerstein and Alan Greenberg was created to review the SOIs of the nominees as well as the extent to which they satisfied the obligations and requirements. The Selection Committee will select the candidate by Friday, 12 August.

We  request  that  all  potential  candidates  understand  the obligations  and requirements of assuming this assignment:

  1. Able and willing to travel to Hyderabad for the entire length of the meeting’

  2. Participation on all at-large trip planning meetings prior to Hyderabad (Meetings are held online);

  3. Commit to attend all ALAC and regional leadership meetings in Hyderabad;

  4. Complete and submit a trip report to NARALO leadership and membership.
