Hi Alan,

Just wondering whether it would be worthwhile putting in a link to the ALAC Appointee Selection Committee webpage <https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/ALAC+Appointee+Selection+Committee> so that everyone reading this email knows who they are.  Also, I noted that on that webpage, the title of the Committee is “Appointee”, not “Appointment” as in the first line of the draft email below.  

Cheers,  Julie

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 revised RoPs <https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/ALAC+Rules+of+Procedure+Update+-+2016?preview=/59645374/62390357/ALAC%20RoP-Revision3-For_Approval-Clean-20160909.pdf> 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 here <https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large%20Reports%20from%20WGs,%20RALOs%20and%20Liaisons>. 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 ALAC list <mailto:alac at atlarge-lists.icann.org> the cc’ing Alan Greenberg <mailto:Alan%20Greenberg%20%3calan.greenberg at mcgill.ca%3e> and At-Large staff <mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org> by Friday, 21 October at 23:59 UTC. For nominations made by people without access to the ALAC list, Staff will post to the ALAC list.
All Nominees, in their acceptance or self-nomination, must provide an Expression of Interest including sufficient information about their background and experience to allow the ALAC Appointment Selection Committee to review the nominations and decide on whether to forward their candidacy to the ALAC. 
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 to, so submissions should be as complete as possible.
