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 
Nominating Committee.

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 
Community Advisory Council.

Alan Greenberg
Chair, ALAC
