Dear All,

According to Rule 2.1 of the ALAC Internal Rules of Procedure
<https://community.icann.org/download/attachments/27854147/AL-2007-1-1-Rev11+ALAC+Internal+Rules+of+Procedure+-+EN+.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1316562204000> the
ALAC will elect a Chair, at least two (2) Vice-Chairs and a Rapporteur.
Rule. 2.2 states that all officers are normally elected at an Annual
General Meeting of ICANN. Rule 9.1 states that the election call will be
sent by the current ALAC Chair.

In keeping with these rules, this message serves as the election call
for the ALAC Officers to serve as members of the ALAC Executive
Committee from 22 October 2012 to the ICANN Annual General Meeting 2013.

The election schedule is as follows:

*_Election Schedule_*

  * 17 September 2012 Election Call  /(sent to lists.)/
  * 1 October 2012 Deadline for Officer Nominations /(to be sent to lists.)/
  * 3 October 2012 Chair to post to the public ALAC list an "election
    summary" message /(sent to lists.)/

  * 14 October 2012 Start of AGM
  * 18 October 2012 Closure of AGM
  * 18 October 2012 Start of Election of ALAC Officers by 2013 ALAC
    immediately after the closure of the AGM (Should a ballot be required)
  * 22 October 2012 Election Results announced
  * 22 October 2012 New ALAC Officers take their seats

Please note that according to two motions of the ALAC, which were
adopted during the 25 November 2008 ALAC Meeting, the ALAC Officers
consisting of a Chair,  two Vice-Chairs, and a Rapporteur shall
represent different ICANN Geographic Regions.

A 2012-2013 ALAC Officer Election wiki page
<https://community.icann.org/x/pocoAg> has been created that includes
the following:

  * The election schedule as above;
  * An election schedule with the Rules of Procedure explanations;
  * ALAC officer criteria; and
  * Nominations for ALAC officers.

Warm regards,

Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond
ALAC Chair
