Interested members from the At-Large community should send their 1) expression of interest and 2) resume, curriculum vitae, or biography, to staff at atlarge.icann.org<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org> by 23:59 UTC on 14 July 2016.

9. As ALAC Liaison to the CSC, what do you believe that your main responsibilities will be, both within the CSC and in relation to the ALAC?

Please use the expression of interest template (.docx file attached) to fill out the required information.

Candidates' Expression of Interest (EoI) submissions will be reviewed by the ALAC Candidate Selection Committee which will forward its preferred EoIs to the ALAC for final selection and/or ratification.


On 10 March 2016, the ICANN Board transmitted to the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Agency (NTIA) a package of proposals<https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/iana-stewardship-transition-package-10mar16-en.pdf> developed by the international Internet community to transition NTIA’s stewardship of the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community.

One of the things that this package calls for is the creation of a Customer Standing Committee (CSC) to provide operational oversight of the performance of the IANA naming function, a role currently performed by NTIA. The scope and responsibility of the CSC is available here<https://www.icann.org/iana_imp_docs/43-csc-scope-and-responsibilities-v-v2>.

The membership composition of the CSC, as specified in the package of proposals, includes one Liaison appointed by the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC), who will serve an inaugural three-year term.

Liaisons shall not be members or be entitled to vote on the CSC, but otherwise shall be entitled to participate on equal footing with members of the CSC. Participation in the CSC is voluntary. The CSC is expected to perform the majority of its work telephonically and via email. Travel funding will not be provided.


The ALAC is responsible for appointing a primary and a secondary candidate that meet the qualification requirements in the expression of interest, and are geographically diverse. The ALAC should forward the Liaison candidates to the CSC for consideration no later than 23:59 UTC on 22 July 2016.

The Membership Selection Process of the CSC Charter calls for due consideration to be given, to the extent possible, to form a CSC that has diversity in terms of geography and skill set. To that end, the composition of the slate will be reviewed during two points in the selection process: firstly by the RySG and ccNSO and secondly by the ccNSO and GNSO.

The ccNSO and GNSO Councils will also make a decision regarding which members and liaisons will serve an inaugural three-year term.

The ccNSO and GNSO Councils will notify ICANN and the appointing organizations of the final composition of the CSC. The notification will take place on or around 10 August 2016.
