Hi Eduardo and all,

Eduardo:  OK, I am totally confused and I really hope that you can clarify!  I notice from https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+Elections+2011 that this appointment and subsequent support has been considered as being for the ALAC delegate to the Nom Com.  If you read my e-mail below, the election that you replied to was for the NARALO ALAC election - NOT the Nominating Committee position.  So, which position were you proposing yourself for?  We need to know this as this changes the landscape for the NARALO ALAC election.  Also, this opens the question as to whether your application to the Nominating Committee was done on time and whether the subsequent support can actually be counted (if it matters anyways).

Eduardo, I am also very confused by the new timings quoted in the attached link.  On July 10, Adam Peake sent an e-mail to the Secretariats list which I subsequently forwarded to this list stating that we had until Aug. 15 to send our choices for delegates to the NomCom.  Why has this time-line been tightened up without notice to the regions - or am I muddling things up again?


I'm sorry that this has gotten so confusing for everybody involved.  We have four elections/nominations happening concurrently:

1.  NARALO nomination for the ALAC Nom Com position (replacing Marc) (now closed) (Alan and Eric have their names in - that we know of)
2.  NARALO nomination for an At Large delegate for the Nominating Committee itself (this was held by Eduardo up until now) (Glenn (definitely) and Eduardo (probably) have their names in)
3.  NARALO election for ALAC (this position was held by Gareth - he is still eligible for another term if he chooses to run) (if Eduardo is chosen to serve as the NARALO NomCom delegate he cannot hold this position) (debatably we have NOBODY on the slate yet)
4.  NARALO election for leadership positions of Chair and Secretariat (so far Beau and I have been re-nominated to continue holding these positions but anybody can run or nominate someone else)

I hope that we can get the timings and the "who is running for WHAT" issues settled quickly!

Subject: [NA-Discuss] Please consider my nomination to the NARALO ALAC  Election


I want to submit my nomination for the ALAC election.

 I have been a founder member of the NARALO since its inception in 2007.
During this time I have been able to participate in the majority of  all
conference/ICANN meetings. I was elected for two consecutive years to the
NomCom and I successfully put together (with the help of you all!!) a good
NARALO show in San Francisco. Currently, I am representing the region in the
ccNSO Territory and Country Names Study Group and also submitted my name to
volunteer in the WHOIS Review Team.

 I believe I am ready to work at a level with a wider scope and
responsibilities. I have the time and motivation to do the work required at
