Dear All,

Maureen Hilyard, Chair of the ALAC, is requesting Expressions of Interest (EoIs) to represent the ALAC/At-Large on the NextGen Selection Committee and as a NextGen Mentor. Details of the positions are noted in the announcement below.

EOIs for either the position of representative on the NextGen Selection Committee or the NextGen Mentor should be sent to At-Large staff by Thursday, 12 November at 23:59 UTC.

The 2021 ALAC Appointee Selection Committee (AASC) will review all EoIs and appoint the two representatives.

The deadline for the selection of representatives has been extended to 15 November.


The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) invites ICANN's Supporting Organizations, Advisory Committees, Stakeholder Groups, Constituencies, and Regional At-Large Organizations to nominate volunteers to serve on the NextGen at ICANN Selection Committee and to serve as NextGen at ICANN mentors. Each group is welcome to nominate one individual for each role.

  *   Selection Committee: A time commitment of approximately 20 hours over three weeks for each application round is required. Selection Committee members will typically serve for two years, or six application rounds.

  *   Mentors: A time commitment of approximately 24 hours each round is expected, including extensive pre-meeting preparation and on-site support for their assigned NextGen mentees. Mentors spend about 10 hours per week during the 6-week preparation period in advance of the meeting and about two hours per day providing on-site support at the ICANN meeting. Mentors will typically serve for one year, or three meetings. Mentors are expected to follow NextGen at ICANN Program<https://www.icann.org/public-responsibility-support/nextgen> guidelines to help ensure consistency in capacity development opportunities. Mentors will receive travel funding support.

Mentors cannot serve on the Selection Committee at the same time they are serving as mentors. If several community groups nominate volunteers for each role, the length of service may be reduced to allow for greater stakeholder diversity.

For more information on the guidelines and expectations, please visit this page<https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/nextgen-mentoring-guidelines-14jul20-en.pdf> for more information about Mentors and this page<https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/nextgen-selection-committee-2020-09-25-en> for the Selection Committee.


Kind regards,
At-Large support staff
