>Subject: [ALAC-Announce] VOTE RESULT: 
>Appointment of the ALAC Liaison to the    GAC
>Dear All,
>Alan Greenberg, Chair of the ALAC, has asked 
>that the following message be distributed.
>During the ICANN55 meeting in Marrakech, the 
>ALAC proposed to the Governmental Advisory 
>Committee (GAC) that the two groups exchange 
>Liaisons. The ALAC had long discussed the 
>possibility of this happening, and it was with 
>great pleasure that the GAC agreed in principle.
>More recently we have had formal approval to 
>appoint our Liaison. There was a consensus 
>within the ALAC that we should not delay and 
>should have an appointment in time for the 
>ICANN56 Helsinki meeting. Because of the short 
>time-frame, the ALAC requested that the ALAC 
>Leadership Team (the ALT, with one ALAC Member 
>from each of the five regions) make a 
>recommendation to the ALAC on who to appoint for 
>the interim period from now until the end of the 
>ICANN Annual General Meeting, ICANN57, scheduled 
>to be held in Hyderabad India in November 2016.
>The ALT recommended that Yrjö Länsipuro, be 
>appointed. Yrjö is a very well respected member 
>of the At-Large Community, having served us in a 
>number of capacities and now being the EURALO 
>delegate to the Nominating Committee. Prior to 
>his involvement in At-Large, Yrjö served on the 
>GAC representing Finland. Accordingly, he is 
>very well versed on both sides of this new role.
>The ALAC has now voted and I am delighted to 
>report that Yrjö has been appointed as the 
>Liaison to the GAC for the interim period until the end of ICANN57.
>Over the coming months, the ALAC will issue a 
>Call for Nominations for the position for the 2016-2017 ICANN year.
>The formal results of the ALAC vote follow.
>Alan Greenberg
>Chair, ALAC
>Kindly note that the vote held by the ALAC on 
>the proposed ratification of the ALAC Liaison to the GAC is now closed.
>Whereas the ALAC proposed to the Governmental 
>Advisory Committee (GAC) that the two groups exchange Liaisons;
>Whereas the GAC has agreed;
>Whereas there is insufficient time to enter into 
>a formal nomination, evaluation and selection process;
>Whereas the ALAC decided by consensus that the 
>ALAC Leadership Team (ALT) should recommend a 
>person to fill the role of Liaison from the ALAC 
>to the GAC on an interim basis;
>Whereas the ALT has unanimously recommended that 
>Yrjö Länsipuro fill that role in consideration 
>of his experience as a GAC Member as well as the 
>many other roles he has played within ICANN and At-Large.
>The ALAC ratifies this recommendation and 
>appoints Yrjö Länsipuro as the ALAC Liaison to 
>the GAC for a period beginning immediately and 
>ending at the conclusion of the ICANN 57 meeting 
>currently scheduled to be held in Hyderabad India, 03-09 November 2016.
