Dear all,
I am not sure whether non-voting members like myself can nominate members to these positions – I have browsed the web site but have been unable to find the answer to this question.

If I can, please accept my nomination for Jean-Jacques Subrenat.
I have witnessed his diplomatic ability (he is a former Ambassador), his command of foreign languages (even Mandarin Chinese) and his strong multicultural attitude in particular while we were working together on the ICANN Board. I am sure that these qualities and experiences are of the upmost importance for the ALAC Liaison to a body like the GAC.

If, on the other hand, I cannot nominate candidates, please disregard this email.

Oggetto: [ALAC-Announce] CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: ALAC Liaisons
Priorità: Alta

Dear All,

The ALAC Appointee Selection Committee<https://community.icann.org/x/VwebAw> recommended for a full call for nominations for ALAC Liaisons for the 2016-2017 term.

Thus, this is a call for nominations for the following ALAC Liaisons. The current Liaison is shown in brackets.

- GNSO (Olivier Crepin-Leblond)
- ccNSO (Maureen Hilyard)
- SSAC (Julie Hammer)
- GAC (Yrjö Länsipuro)
-.MOBI (Murray McKercher)

The one year terms will start at the close of ICANN 57 and end at the close of ICANN 60.

The schedule for this call for Liaisons is:

Call issued Friday, 23 September
Call closes: Monday, 3 October at 23:59 UTC
Acceptances due: Friday, 7 October at 23:59 UTC
ALAC Appointee Selection Committee Teleconference: week of 10 October
ALAC Vote (if multiple candidates from Selection Committee): As soon as practical after Selection Committee announces recommendations

Please review the General Liaison requirements and responsibilities located in the revised RoP<http://tinyurl.com/ALAC-RoP-2016-09> Section 7.

Of particular importance, please note the following:

- (As per RoP 7.3) Liaisons to AC/SOs need not be ALAC Members, but they will normally be current or past ALAC Members, or otherwise familiar with the ALAC and At-Large and the TG to whom they will liaise.

- (As per RoP 7.8) When representing the ALAC, Appointees have an obligation to solicit ALAC and At-Large views on the matter where practical and possible. Appointees should be selected knowing that in many instances such consultation may not be possible or practical and thus the ALAC needs to select people who understand the philosophies or guiding values and principles of the ALAC and At-Large.

- Liaisons should be selected based on their familiarity with the group to which they are appointed. Having worked extensively with them before in some capacity (such as on multiple WGs) is a strong asset.

- A level of trust between a Liaison and the group to which they are appointed is mandatory for success and must already exist or it should be demonstrable how or why it may exist in the future.

- Liaisons to AC/SOs require a MAJOR time commitment over and above other At-Large responsibilities.

- For the SSAC Liaison position, the ALAC only makes a recommendation. The Liaison is a full SSAC Member and must satisfy SSAC criteria and follow SSAC processes for admission to the AC.

- For the GAC Liaison position, the potential candidate must be approved by GAC Leadership.

- For .MOBI, the prime issue not as much mutual respect and trust, but ensuring that the Liaison understands the business of .MOBI and is well versed in mobile technologies.

Liaison reports may be seen here<https://community.icann.org/x/-pQi>. Liaisons are asked to provide monthly reports which summarize activities in the organization to which they are the Liaison.

Process for Nomination and Selection:

Nominations should be sent to the ALAC list<mailto:alac at atlarge-lists.icann.org> the cc’ing Alan Greenberg<mailto:alan.greenberg at mcgill.ca> and At-Large staff<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org> by Friday, 03 October at 23:59 UTC. For nominations made by people without access to the ALAC list, Staff will post to the ALAC list.

All Nominees, in their acceptance or self-nomination, must provide an Expression of Interest including sufficient information about their background and experience to allow the ALAC Appointment Selection Committee to review the nominations and decide on whether to forward their candidacy to the ALAC.

The Selection Committee may choose to forward one or more candidates to the ALAC for each position.

The Selection Committee or its Chair may choose to ask follow-up questions, but it is not obliged to, so submissions should be as complete as possible.
