  I am pleased to report that the ALAC has selected Christopher Wilkinson to be the ALAC-Appointed Co-Leasder of the GNSO's New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP Working Group WT5 on geonames at the top level.

    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 https://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/unctwg.htm and https://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/ccwg-unct.htm.)

    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.

    Alan Greenberg
    Chair, ALAC
