    Dear At-Large members,

    following a call for nominations for the ALAC Chair, as of the deadline
    of 3 September 2014, Alan Greenberg was the only candidate that had been

    According to the ALAC bylaws, I proceeded with a consensus call on the
    ALAC mailing list for Alan Greenberg to be selected as the next ALAC
    Chair by acclamation. This consensus call ended on Thursday 11 September
    2014, 23:59 UTC, with no objections and a large number of messages
    supporting Alan's selection.

    As a result, it is my pleasure to be able to announce Alan Greenberg as
    the next ALAC Chair for a one year, renewable term, that will start on
    16 October 2014.

    I would like to offer my congratulations to Alan for taking on such a
    position. I admit it has been a challenging four years for me, but Alan
    has what it takes to continue stewarding the great work that our
    community has done over the years. He is so experienced in this
    environment that I have no doubt he'll lead this community to new levels
    and I am absolutely confident that our common missions, grouped under
    the ICANN Bylaws Article XI, Section 2.4.a and 2.4.j will not only be
    fulfilled but exceeded in every sense of the term.

    Finally, I would also like to let Alan know of my personal continued
    support for the ALAC's mission. We are all part of the Internet's only
    operational multi-stakeholder system that has to make decisions which
    will affect many Internet users around the world. This is a fantastic
    opportunity to prove that the system works. We should expect to always
    be under the microscope but in front of unfounded criticism, I ask
    detractors: "so you think you can do better? Why don't you try

    Alan, just like the many people in this community contributing at the
    level of their possibilities, has taken the step to try. So have you
    all, At-Large members. For this commitment I am really proud of you all
    - and I feel rich for having been given the chance to be part of it.

    Thank you.

    Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond
