As Roberto has confirmed, he was appointed to the ALAC by the NomCom for two terms (2003-2006), but he was also selected by the ALAC to represent the ALAC on the Board (there is no prohibition on occupying both roles simultaneously, GAC and SSAC Liaisons do it all the time).

Vittorio served a one year term as Liaison to the Board for 2006-2007 followed by Wendy and Vanda as you described.

You can find a list of 2003 Board members with Roberto as ALAC Liaision at http://web.archive.org/web/20031215084615/http://www.icann.org/general/board.html .

Hi Alan,

this is not 100 percent correct. The first official ALAC Liaison was Vittorio Bertola (until 2007), followed by Wendy Selzer (2007 - 2009) amd Vanda (2009 - 2010) before Sebastian became the first voting ALAC Board member (2010 - 2014). Roberto was selectd by the NomCom (I was a member of NomCom it this time). There had been some other individuals close to At Large who made their way into the board vie tha NomCom as Susan Crawford and Bertrand de la Chapelle, but - as said in a previous mail - the NomCom did partly forget that the orginal plan for the establishment of the NomCom was to open a venue for individuals, close to the At Large philosophy.

With all the talk recently about our Board member Leon Sanchez, being
selected as Vice-Chair, I wanted to remind everyone that this is not
the first time that an ex-ALAC member has been so honoured.

It is worth remembering that Roberto Gaetano was an ALAC Member for 4
years, from 2003-2006, and was our first Liaison to the ICANN Board
for the entire period. In December, 2006 Roberto was appointed as a
full voting Board member by the NomCom, and was immediately elected
Vice-Chair, a position that he held for the duration of his term.

There are times when people leave the Board and sort of disappear.
That was not the case with Roberto, who is still one of At-Large's
most active members.

And as many of you know, he plays a pretty mean saxophone with the GEMS Band.

Here's to Roberto!
