Dear Chair/ALAC,

I observed the PDF document at the url below is consistent with the section
quoted by Alan but not the text posted in the wiki.


ALAC RoP on the wiki:

I suggest that the 2 documents be reconciled.

Dear Alan:

Without wishing to disturb these otherwise calm waters, may I enquire:

- as I understand it, the ALAC Chair is eligible for a second term.
That does not necessarily mean that the *'reconduction'* is automatic,
unless there are no other candidates.
Normally, I would expect the staff also to call for nominations for the

- At Large is naturally aware that the current Chair is eligible and
willing to be elected for a second term

- (I am not a candidate for any of the announced positions).

However it is increasingly evident that ICANN needs a far more crisp,
informed and critical ALAC than we have experienced in recent years.
There is a potential vacuum in the representation of civil society and
users' interests: It is likely that GAC will abstain from voting
participation in the 'Member'. Civil society participants in GNSO have not
reined in the contracted parties. Discussion in CCWG is moving towards
codifying how the SO and AC are accountable to the 'non-ICANN community'.

At Large should lead the way.

Best regards

Dear All,

Please see below the call for nominations for members of the 2016 ALAC
Leadership Team (ALT) sent on behalf of Alan Greenberg, Chair of the ALAC.


Now that it is confirmed that the ALAC Chair, Alan Greenberg, will continue
for another term, he has requested that a call for nominations be issued
for the other four members of the ALAC Leadership team (ALT) from the four
remaining regions:

- Africa
- Asia, Australasia and Pacific Islands
- Europe
- Latin America and Caribbean Islands

The ALAC Rules of Procedure call for up to two Vice-Chairs, at the
discretion of the incoming ALAC Chair, and Alan has indicated that he would
prefer two Vice-Chairs as was the case during the past year.

Nominations are now open for individuals to serve as the two Vice-Chairs of
the ALAC and the two non-titled ALT positions.  Nominations may be made by
any current ALAC Member. Nominees need not be an ALAC Member at the time of
the nominations, but must have an expectation of being an ALAC Member after
the completion of the upcoming Dublin ICANN Meeting.

Requirements for ALT members can be found in Section 6 of the ALAC Rules of
Procedure (http://tinyurl.com/ALAC-RoP-2013-04).

Nominations will close on Saturday,  17 October 2015 at 23:59 UTC.

Nominations need not be seconded, but it is an ALAC tradition that others
may second the nomination as a show of agreement with the nomination.

Nominations other than self-nominations must be accepted within seven days
after the close of nominations. Acceptance should be sent to the
alac at atlarge-lists.icann.org<mailto:alac at atlarge-lists.icann.org>.

Nominees without access to that list should send their acceptance to
staff at atlarge.icann.org<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>.

Staff will forward all acceptances to
ALAC-Announce at atlarge-lists.icann.rog<mailto:ALAC-Announce at atlarge-lists.icann.rog

Following the close of the nominations period and the acceptance or
rejection of all nominations, candidates from regions where the position is
not contested will be declared to  have won by acclamation.

If there are multiple candidates from any region, the candidates, in
conjunction with the ALAC, will be given the opportunity to resolve the
situation. Failing that, an secret vote of the ALAC will decide the winner.

If the resultant ALT includes two members nominated to be Vice-Chairs,
those two will serve in those positions. If there are less than two or more
than two nominated as Vice-Chairs, the ALAC Chair will decide who will
occupy the Vice-Chair positions.
