The Public Interest Registry (PIR), the operator of the .NGO and .ONG
top level domains (see http://pir.org/products/ngo-ong-domain/), is
looking for one person to represent the ALAC in its NGO Community
Advisory Council. The Advisory Council provides important feedback
and advice on issues relating to the NGO community ranging from
policy considerations to the introduction of new services.
The NGO Community Advisory Council plays a vital role in helping
Public Interest Registry fulfill its mission. With .ngo domain users
representing NGOs of varying size, sectors,scope and geography, it is
important to have advocates in the Internet community who fully
understand their needs as diverse service-based organizations. The
Council continually lends its unique global expertise to help us meet
those needs and strengthen our efforts in supporting NGOs worldwide.
The Advisory Council meets Face-to-Face annually (generally in
September) and via teleconference four times per year.
To the extent allowed by PIR confidentiality rules, the successful
applicant will be expected to regularly report to the ALAC on
Advisory Council issues and if applicable consult with the ALAC.
PIR has asked the ALAC to identify a number of candidates. Ideally,
such candidates will come from an active At-Large ALS that has a
proven record of engagement with the NGO community. Candidates should
have notable leadership experience in non-commercial/civil society
community and an acute understanding of the issues and policies that
affect the NGO society. Candidates should submit their Expression of
Interest detailing their experience, expertise and qualifications
along with a statement that they have sufficient time and interest to
fulfill the Advisory Council duties.
The ALAC Appointee Selection Committee will review all EoIs and will
select a small number which will be forwarded to PIR. The final
selection on the ALAC Representative will be done by the PIR
All EoIs must be sent to staff at atlarge.icann.org by Wednesday, 25
January 2017 at 23:59 UTC. Please use an e-mail Subject of: NGO
