Dear All, 


ICANN Nominating Committee, Call for Statements of Interest for
Leadership Positions Submission deadline 1 May 2007


<http://nomcom.icann.org <http://nomcom.icann.org/> >


ICANN's 2007 Nominating Committee has just posted a call for statements
of interest for leadership positions on its Board of Directors and its
Supporting Organizations.


Please read the material below and to consider who might be appropriate
and strong candidates for such submissions, and to make recommendations
of suitable individuals.  Interested individuals may also submit a
statement of interest directly. Self-nominations are encouraged.


Please feel free to redistribute this message to any and all relevant
individuals and groups.





The ICANN Nominating Committee invites Statements of Interest from 

the community as it seeks qualified candidates for the following 



      -  three members of the ICANN Board of Directors;


      -  two members of the Council of the Generic Names Supporting

         Organization (GNSO);


      -  one member of the Council of the Country-Code Names

         Supporting Organization (ccNSO); and


      -  three members of the At Large Advisory Committee (ALAC), for

         Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America and Caribbean regions.


Those individuals selected by the Nominating Committee will have a 

unique opportunity to work with accomplished colleagues from around 

the globe, address intriguing technical coordination problems and 

related policy development challenges with diverse functional, 

cultural, and geographic dimensions, and gain valuable insights and 

experience from working across these boundaries of knowledge, 

responsibility and perspective.


Additionally, those selected will gain the satisfaction of making a 

valuable public service contribution. Placing the broad public 

interest ahead of any particular interests, they will help ensure the 

stability and security of the Internet for critically important 

societal functions.


These voluntary positions are not remunerated, although direct 

expenses incurred in the course of duty will be reimbursed. These 

positions may involve significant international travel, including 

personal presence at periodic ICANN meetings, as well as regular 

telephone and Internet communications.


Candidates should be women and men with a high level of 

qualifications and experience with an international outlook including 

some familiarity with the Internet. They should be prepared to 

contribute to the collective decision-making process among ICANN's 

constituencies, supporting organizations and advisory bodies.


Selection criteria, eligibility factors, roles of each position, 

application procedure, and contacts are posted at:


    <http://nomcom.icann.org <http://nomcom.icann.org/> >

1 May 2007 for full consideration. Selections will be made before 2 

October 2007 with service beginning at the close of ICANN's General 

Meeting, 2 November 2007.
