As I said in reply to your earlier message, I had 
informed the Nominating Committee of the 
possibility that this might happen, and I would 
inform them if and when it actually did occur. I 
do note that the two other ALAC Members from 
North America have both served on the NomCom and 
are well versed on the procedures.

The selection has now been declared official and 
I have indeed notified the Nominating Committee 
(Chair, Associate Chair and support staff).

I am not aware of any need to seek advice from 
ICANN Legal. I presume if there is such a need, 
the NomCom will do so. I am aware of only one 
other resignation of a NomCom appointed person to 
the ALAC, and in that case, the resignation was 
tendered to the Chair of the ALAC. I did not feel 
that such a formality was necessary in this case.

Regarding when the NomCom chooses to refill the 
vacancy, I and NARALO have no control. Vacancies 
due to resignations are not particularly 
uncommon, so I will have to presume that the 
professionals we have in charge of the NomCom 
will find a way forward. Whether it will be 
handled by the 2015 NomCom or the 2016 NomCom or 
in fact have the seat left vacant for a year, is 
not within my realm of knowledge or control. 
Although I cannot claim that input from me serves 
as "guidance", I will say that I have strongly 
recommended that the seat be filled as soon as possible and practical.

Regards, Alan
