Dear All,

Olivier Crépin-Leblond, Chair of the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) has requested a call for candidates in the At-Large community for the ICANN Accountability & Governance Coordination Group ("Coordination Group").

On 14 August 2014, ICANN published Enhancing ICANN Accountability and Governance - Process and Next Steps<https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/process-next-steps-2014-08-14-en>, a document that describes the process to examine how ICANN's accountability mechanisms should be strengthened to address the absence of its historical relationship with the US Government. The next steps in the process include the formation of a Coordination Group as proposed in the original proposal<https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/enhancing-accountability-2014-05-06-en> on 6 May. The Coordination Group will have 21 participants, including 10 stakeholder members (1 per SO/AC, with the exception of GNSO). Stakeholder communities are invited to launch their internal selections to appoint their representatives to the Coordination Group. The upcoming Coordination Group gathering will take place during ICANN 51 in Los Angeles, October 2014.

The At-Large Sub-Committee on the Selection of Member for the ICANN Accountability & Governance Coordination Group ("Selection Committee") is responsible for selecting one (1) candidate from the At-Large community to participate in the Coordination Group. Interested members from the At-Large community should send their Expression of Interest (EOI) to staff at atlarge.icann.org<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org> by Sunday 07 September 2014 23:59 UTC. In their EOI, candidates should respond to the following:

  *   A resume (maximum three pages)
  *   A letter of motivation
  *   A Declaration of Interests
  *   Responses to 3 questions posed by the Selection Committee as follows:
(a)  Why do you believe that you are in a position to fairly defend end user interests on the ICANN Accountability & Governance Coordination Group?
(b)  Are you ready to act as a liaison from the ALAC to the Coordination Committee and act according to the directions set by the ALAC?
(c)  Please describe previous roles you have held liaising on behalf of a third party.
The candidate EOI will be published in a secured section of the Selection Committee wiki page<https://community.icann.org/x/QpDhAg>, which only Selection Committee members can access.
