[NA-Discuss] Questions for Board candidates

Hello all,

Regardless of the direction of the ongoing petition debate, we are going to
eventually have an election for the Board position; from at very least the
three agreed by the BCEC and possibly one other being considered for

In the interest of At-Large's making an informed selection from amongst the
candidates I do not want to wait for the end of the petition process to
start guiding the NARALO voters to informed choices. And I made a commitment
to know the preferences of NARALO ALSs and individual members as I consider
my own selection.

In view of that I *urge* NARALO members to view the online statements of
interest. Here are the SOIs for the candidates put forward by the
BCEC: Alan<https://community.icann.org/download/attachments/2265195/At-Large+Director+Applicant+-+Alan+Greenberg.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1288326250000>,
I also include Avri's<https://community.icann.org/download/attachments/2265195/At-Large+Director+Applicant+-+Avri+Doria.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1288315872000>in
case the petition succeeds.

I am aware that ICANN staff are arranging a community call at which the
candidates will be able to advance their causes for election.

However, in addition, I would also like to solicit NARALO members for
questions to be given to each candidate, to which they will be asked to
provide a written response. Such questions, which would go beyond the issues
stated in each person's SOI, would allow candidates to give thoughful,
complete answers on issues in a manner that simply isn't possible in a
crowded, multilingual conference call. One does not replace the other; I am
proposing a questionnaire as a complementary way for us to determine which
candidate best serves the community's needs.

Please let me know your questions; try to keep them as neutral and relevant
as possible. If the collection is worthwhile I will assemble them, submit
the questionnaire to candidates early next week, and publish the responses
as they are received.

If you have a question of a particular candidate (based on something in
their SOI or history) please also submit them, though I'm not sure yet
if/how I'll do that.
