Please review this call for nominations. I would 
like to send it out on Thursday.


Dear All,

The ALAC Appointment Selection Committee 
recommended for a full call for nominations for 
ALAC Liaisons for the 2016-2017 term.

Thus, this is a call for nominations for the 
following ALAC Liaisons. The current Liaison is shown in brackets.

- GNSO (Olivier Crepin-Leblond)
- ccNSO (Maureen Hilyard)
- SSAC (Julie Hammer)
- GAC (Yrjö Länsipuro)
-.MOBI (Murray McKercher)

The one year terms will start at the close of 
ICANN 57 and end at the close of ICANN 60.

The schedule for this call for Liaisons is:

Call issued Thursday, 22 September
Call closes: Saturday, 1 October (10 days)
Acceptances due: Saturday, 8 October
ALAC Selection Committee Teleconference: week of 10 October
ALAC Vote (if multiple candidates from Selection Committee): 17-21 October

Please review the General Liaison requirements 
and responsibilities located in the 
RoPs Section 7.

Of particular importance, please note the following:

- (As per RoP 7.3) Liaisons to AC/SOs need not be 
ALAC Members, but they will normally be current 
or past ALAC Members, or otherwise familiar with 
the ALAC and At-Large and the TG to whom they will liaise.

- (As per RoP 7.8) When representing the ALAC, 
Appointees have an obligation to solicit ALAC and 
At-Large views on the matter where practical and 
possible. Appointees should be selected knowing 
that in many instances such consultation may not 
be possible or practical and thus the ALAC needs 
to select people who understand the philosophies 
or guiding values and principles of the ALAC and At-Large.

- Liaisons should be selected based on their 
familiarity with the group to which they are 
appointed. Having worked extensively with them 
before in some capacity (such as on multiple WGs) is a strong asset.

- A level of trust between a Liaison and the 
group to which they are appointed is mandatory 
for success and must already exist or it should 
be demonstrable how or why it may exist in the future.

- Liaisons to AC/SOs require a MAJOR time 
commitment over and above other At-Large responsibilities.

- For the SSAC Liaison position, the ALAC only 
makes a recommendation. The Liaison is a full 
SSAC Member and must satisfy SSAC criteria and 
follow SSAC processes for admission to the AC.

- For the GAC Liaison position, the potential 
candidate must be approved by GAC Leadership.

- For .MOBI, the prime issue not as much mutual 
respect and trust, but ensuring that the Liaison 
understands the business of .MOBI and is well versed in mobile technologies.

Liaison reports may be seen 
Liaisons are asked to provide monthly reports 
which summarize activities in the organization to which they are the Liaison.

Process for Nomination and Selection:

Nominations should be sent to the 
<mailto:alac at atlarge-lists.icann.org>ALAC list

made by people without access to the ALAC list,

All Nominees, in their acceptance or 
self-nomination, must provide an Expression of 
Interest including sufficient information about

The Selection Committee may choose to forward one 
or more candidates to the ALAC for each position.

The Selection Committee or its Chair may choose 
to ask follow-up questions, but it is not obliged
