The GNSO's New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP Working Group is
establishing a new Work Track 5 (WT5) which will focus exclusively on
geographic names at the top-level. This has been a very contentious
issue with a wide variety of difficult-to-reconcile positions, but
one that must be resolved prior to any future new gTLD availability.
In order to promote broad participation from across the community,
the WG is seeking to establish a shared leadership model in WT5 with
co-leaders from the ALAC, ccNSO, GAC and GNSO.
Past efforts in this area have included a ccNSO Study Group and a
Cross-Community Working Group (CCWG) on the use of country names as
Top Level Domains (TLDs). (See
We are looking for a person who is well acquainted with the multiple
views on the subject within ICANN, has knowledge of and preferably
experience in the past efforts, and who can work closely with the
ALAC and an At-Large WG supporting the effort.
We note that to a large extent, the person serving in this capacity
is a facilitator for the Work Track and not there to put forward
their personal positions.
Interested candidates should send an Expression of Interest detailing
their experience and willingness to serve in all aspects of this role
to staff at atlarge.icann.org no later than 23:59 UTC on Monday, 28 August 2017.
The ALAC will also be looking for volunteers to participate in the
WT5 once it is established, but this Call for Volunteers is
exclusively for the position of Co-Leader.
