1. Chair [held by Bruna Martins dos Santos - eligible for re-election] 
2. EC – Europe [currently held by Louise Marie Hurel, eligible for re-election]
3. EC - Africa [currently held by Ines Hfaideh, ineligible for re-election]

NCUC EC really needs committed volunteers who are willing to donate a few hours a week to collaboration in order to help ensure that civil society's voice is heard in ICANN. The EC’s responsibilities are administrative management, in-reach and outreach, and interfacing with ICANN’s staff and community as needed. NCUC Chair has also several duties and roles to fulfil. If you think that you or someone you know would be well suited to the tasks involved, then please consider nominating accordingly.

II.  Participation

We will build the voter list, from the NCSG election check-in. The process is ongoing. You just need to respond to the email to be considered as active and added to the voters' list. 

III.  Candidate Statements

For the statement, the nominated candidate should answer:

 * Name, declared region of residence, gender and employment;
 * Any conflicts of interest;


  1.  Why do you want to serve on the EC?
  2.  Provide a brief biography of recent experience, associations, and affiliations relevant to serving on the Executive Committee. Describe the relevance of your personal and professional experience to serve on the NCUC Executive Committee, and identify any conflicts of interests you might have.
  3.  The EC performs several functional responsibilities for the Constituency. What level of time commitment can you bring to your EC role on a weekly and overall basis? Describe any concerns or limitations on your ability to attend online meetings of the Executive Committee and ICANN Meetings in person.
  4.  Communication with the membership is critical. How would you keep members apprised of your EC-related activities?
  5.  How do you foresee NCUC’s function, scale, or role changing in the future? What areas of ICANN policy, if any, need more attention and why? Incumbent candidates should answer in a manner that is both backward and forward-looking, i.e. taking note of their contributions and work in the previous year.

The statements should be relatively concise, e.g. a couple paragraphs per question

IV.  "Meet the Candidates” Call
