Dear All,

Please find below a message sent on behalf of Cheryl Langdon-Orr, Chair of the ALAC and the BCEC.


Dear All,

As Chair of the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) and the At-Large Board Candidate Evaluation Committee (BCEC), it gives me great honor to announce that following the Board passing the resolution agreeing to the Bylaws amendments needed to allow for the seating of the At-Large selected voting Board Director during their meeting earlier today (resolution available at: https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/ALAC+-+Board+Resolution+on+Bylaws+changes+for+Board+Seat+15), the BCEC has selected a slate of 3 candidates for the position. They are identified below in alphabetical order by family name:

·         Sébastien Bachollet

·         Pierre Dandjinou

·         Alan Greenberg

The Statements of Interest (SOI) from the 3 candidates as well as the 19 other applicants reviewed are available on the At-Large Candidate Workspace (workspace available at: https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+Director+Candidate+2010+Workspace)

The current time-line for the Board Director selected by the ALAC/At-Large Community is:

·         28 October:  BCEC to announce slate of 3-7 candidates and SOI details;

·         28 October - 12 November: Campaigning period, including community call for candidate debate, and RALO discussions on candidates;

·         15-19 November: RALO discussions on candidates continue and ALAC and RALO chairs vote for At-Large Director;

·         10 December: Successful candidate takes seat on ICANN Board.

A diagram of this time-line is available at Time-Line for At-Large Board Director Selection 2010.pdf<https://community.icann.org/download/attachments/2265195/Time-Line+for+At-Large+Board+Director+Selection+2010.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1288319128321>.

However, please note that this time-line may change slightly pending an extraordinary meeting of the At-Large Board Selection design team scheduled for Monday, 1 November.
