At-Large Delegates to the NomCom for 2011

ICANN's Nominating Committee asked the At-Large Advisory Committee to submit a list with ALAC delegates from each of ICANN's five geographic regions. Voting members of the NomCom are appointed for a one year term, starting after the close of the Annual General Meeting 2010 and ending at the close of the Annual General Meeting 2011, and may be re-appointed for a further term of one year subject to the requirement under the ICANN Bylaws.

According to the adopted timeline for NomCom elections, the RALOs will transmit all accepted regional nominations to the ALAC on or before August 31st 2010. The RALOs may also make a recommendation of a preferred candidate to the ALAC if they wish to do so. Please find the detailed timetable and current regional nominations below.

What does the NomCom do?

The Nom Com is responsible for the selection of all ICANN Directors except the President and those selected by ICANN's Supporting Organizations, and for such other selections as are set forth in the ICANN Bylaws. (Bylaws Article VII, Section 1)

The Nom Com is charged with populating a portion of the ICANN Board as noted above, as well as the ALAC, the ccNSO Council and GNSO Council. The Nom Com complements the other means for filling a portion of key ICANN leadership positions achieved within the Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees.

The Nominating Committee is designed to function independently from the Board, the Supporting Organizations, and Advisory Committees. Nominating Committee members act only on behalf of the interests of the global Internet community and within the scope of the ICANN mission and responsibilities assigned to it by the ICANN Bylaws.

Members contribute to the Nominating Committee both their understanding of the broad interests of the Internet as a whole and their knowledge and experience of the concerns and interests of the Internet constituencies which have appointed them. The challenge for the Nominating Committee is to integrate these perspectives and derive consensus in its selections. Although appointed by Supporting Organizations and other ICANN entities, individual Nominating Committee members are not accountable to their appointing constituencies. Members are, of course, accountable for adherence to the Bylaws and for compliance with the rules and procedures established by the Nominating Committee.
