My warmest congratulations to Leon!  Looking forward to working with you.

As an equally qualified candidate, also glad to keep Alan as our Chair, leading ALAC thru this turbulent time.

Subject: [At-Large] León Felipe Sánchez Ambía Selected by the At-Large Community as the Next ICANN Board Director

On behalf of Tijani Ben Jemaa, Chair of the Board Member Selection Process Committee (BMSPC), we are announcing the final election result of ICANN Board Director (Seat #15) selected by the At-Large Community.

After six months of efforts, the At-Large Community has successfully concluded its ICANN Board Director selection process on 27 February 2017. León Felipe Sánchez Ambía has been selected by At-Large as the successor of Rinalia Abdul Rahm and will begin his 3 year term as an ICANN Board Director at the end of ICANN60 (3 November 2017).

The selection process began in September 2016, with the formation of two committees<https://community.icann.org/x/Vxi4Aw> tasked with managing the timeline, calling for and evaluating the candidates, and organizing the final election.

Among the six individuals who submitted Expressions of Interest for the position, Alan Greenberg and León Felipe Sánchez Ambía were chosen as the finalists<https://community.icann.org/x/N6bDAw>. Before the election took place, the At-Large Community enjoyed ample opportunities to ask questions to the finalists verbally<https://community.icann.org/x/-pXRAw> and in writing<https://community.icann.org/x/ArXDAw> in order to make an informed choice. At-Large Structures also participated in the final election<https://community.icann.org/x/SbbDAw> by directing the votes of Regional At-Large Organization Chairs<https://community.icann.org/x/-ZfRAw>.
