>> 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.
