To prepare for the selection of the Board Member selected by At-Large to be seated at the October 2020 Annual General Meeting, Maureen Hilyard, the Chair of the ALAC, has asked staff to make an immediate call for members of the two groups who will be responsible for moving the process forward.
According to the ALAC Rules of Procedure (2018) (https://tinyurl.com/y6kp9p6u ), the two groups are the 2019-2020 Board Member Selection Process Committee (BMSPC) and the 2019-2020 Board Candidate Evaluation Committee (BCEC). Please see ALAC Rules of Procedure Section D.19 - Procedure for Making the Selection to fill Seat 15 on the ICANN Board.
The deadline for applying to be members of these groups is 23:59 UTC on Monday 15 August 2019.
If you are interested, please send a note to At-Large staff at staff at atlarge.icann.org<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org%3c> specifying which committee(s) the application is for and attach an Expression of Interest (EoI) explaining your interest and citing any applicable experience/knowledge.
The At-Large Board Member 2019-2020 Selection Workspace is available at: https://tinyurl.com/yxqck74k [tinyurl.com]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__tinyurl.com_yxqck74k&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=ds9md1zoepmwqw2nfk-Vs9ssxn1I3jPs97ekKkctEkM&m=gaJsr1jNfu3YLtBrXJTuELDKQY8HXCZjFIju4XDa9PY&s=Wi2b3Dc74AG85C2V_WJ4s0ua6NabQfuGDFif8EM5MRM&e=>).
The RALO leadership is requested to send a list of their RALO's supported candidates and alternates for each group to the Chair of the ALAC and staff by 23:59 UTC Tuesday, 23 August 2019.
The ALAC will name the final membership soon after.
The details of the two groups are:
1) Board Member Selection Process Committee (BMSPC)
According to Article 19.2 of the ALAC Rules of Procedure:
"The ALAC shall name a Board Member Selection Process Committee (BMSPC) which shall oversee the entire selection process including the election culminating the process but excluding those responsibilities specifically retained by the ALAC or given to the Board Candidate Evaluation Committee. The composition of the BMSPC will be regionally balanced and the committee will be populated with two representatives of each region selected by both the ALAC and the RALOs plus a chair selected by the ALAC. For each region, one Alternate member will be selected who can replace a member from the same region who for whatever reason is not able to fully participate and such replacement will be at the sole discretion of the BMSPC Chair in accordance with BMSPC guidelines."
The group is open to ALAC Members, At-Large community members and to RALO Leaders. However, the membership should include members of the community with significant experience from previous Board Director selected by At-Large process. English will be the working language of this group. The workload of the BMSPC is not expected to be very heavy.
The group must be regionally balanced, with two representatives from each of the five RALOs. Each RALO will also select an Alternate member in the event one of the original members must be replaced. The RALO selection may be done by any means thought appropriate by the RALO leadership.
Please note that no member of the 2019-2020 BMSPC may submit an EoI for the position of the Board Director selected by At-Large.
The ALAC has selected Alan Greenberg as Chair of the BMSPC. The first meeting of the BMSPC will be scheduled for early September.
2) Board Candidate Evaluation Committee (BCEC)
The ALAC Rules of Procedures state the following on the composition and task of the BCEC:
"19.3 The ALAC shall name a Board Candidate Evaluation Committee (BCEC) to compile an initial slate of candidates for election to Seat 15. A new BCEC consisting of two delegates selected by each of the RALOs plus a chair selected by the ALAC will be convened for each Board seat selection process. Each RALO shall also select an Alternate member who can replace a member from the same region who for whatever reason is not able to fully participate and such replacement will be at the sole discretion of the BCEC Chair in accordance with BCEC guidelines."
"19.4 The task of the BCEC is to identify applicants who would each make an excellent Board Director. [19.4.1] Applicant selected by the BCEC must meet the criteria specified in the ICANN Bylaws Article VI, Section 3 ( http://www.icann.org/en/about/governance/bylaws#VI-3 [icann.org]<http://www.icann.org/en/about/governance/bylaws#VI-3%20[icann.org]>). These criteria include but are not limited to being: a) accomplished persons of integrity, objectivity, and intelligence, with reputations for sound judgment and open minds, and a demonstrated capacity for thoughtful group decision-making; and b) persons with an understanding of ICANN's mission and the potential impact of ICANN decisions on the global Internet community, and committed to the success of ICANN. Moreover, the Director selected by the At-Large Community must understand the mission of At-Large and the needs of the global community of Internet end users."
"19.5 No member of the electorate (Paragraph 19.10) may simultaneously serve as a member of the BCEC."
According to 19.5, members of the electorate (i.e., members of the ALAC and RALO Chairs who will be serving in 2020) may not be BCEC members.
The group must be regionally balanced, with two representatives from each of the five RALOs. Each RALO will also select an Alternate member in the event one of the original members must be replaced.
Additionally, no member of the 2019-2020 BCEC may submit an EoI for the position of the Board Director selected by At-Large.
Please note that experience on previous BCECs, on the ICANN Nominating Committee or comparable experience is an asset. The RALO selection methodology must ensure that only suitably qualified candidates are put forward to the ALAC by the RALO Chair.
English will be the working language of this group.
The ALAC has selected YrjÃ¶ Lansipuro as Chair of the BCEC. The first meeting of the BCEC will be scheduled for early September.
