> 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
> named.
> 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 yourself?"
> 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.
