The ICANN Bylaws and the ALAC RoP both say that 
this NomCom delegates are selected by the ALAC in consultation with the RALOs.

We have had a number of cases over the years 
where a RALO has submitted multiple names for the 
ALAC to choose, sometimes with a preference or 
background reason, and sometimes without. For the 
record, that included at least one occurrence 
from NARALO. The ALAC may choose the "less 
preferred candidate" if there is one, or can go 
outside the provided list and select someone else 
if the ALAC feels that this is warranted. This 
has happened. There is no doubt (in my mind) that 
if the ALAC chooses to do this, it will duly 
consider the implications (with respect to the RALO) of doing so.

In terms of timing, there is no great rush, as 
the names are not needed until the travel 
deadline for the November meeting, but the 
selection is typically done soon after the names 
are provided to the ALAC. This year, with the 
somewhat unusual situation of four names being 
provided by APRALO, without any real guidance to 
the ALAC, we will have to carefully consider how 
this should be done to ensure the ALAC makes a 
wise decision. So it may take a bit longer to decide how we do this.
