 The At-Large Community Seeks Expressions of Interest for Candidates for
Post of ICANN Board Seat

16 December 2013

A call for Expressions of Interest (EoIs) is now open through December 26,
2013. This Call for EoIs is part of the process through which the user
community within ICANN will appoint one voting member of the ICANN Board.
While acting in a personal capacity as a member of the ICANN Board, this
member must be able to reflect the users' point of view and interests in
the debate and decision making undertaken within the ICANN framework.

In seeking candidates for this post, ICANN's At-Large Community is looking
for an individual with a broad international perspective and a background
in Internet users' interests, consumer policy and/or civil society
 Information about the At-Large Community:

"At-Large" is the name of the community of individual Internet users
involved in ICANN's policy development process. It currently consists of
over 160 active At-Large organizations (called "At-Large Structures" or
"ALSes"), representing the opinions of the global community of Internet
users. At-Large provides a means through which individual end users of the
Internet worldwide can participate in the matters on which ICANN works,
such as:

   - Guidance on how to run Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs);
   - How to introduce new gTLDs (such as .eco, .green and IDN TLDs); and
   - How to implement a stable and fair transition from IPv4 to the next
   Internet addresses generation, IPv6.
