The GNSO Council nominated Brian Cute, Wolfgang Kleinwächter, and Stéphane Van Gelder as its primary candidates for the Third Review of ICANN Accountability and Transparency (ATRT3). It also recommended Tatiana Tropina, Michael Karanicolas, Adetola Sogbesan, and Erica Varlese to be considered for inclusion by the Supporting Organization (SO)/Advisory Committee (AC) Chairs should additional places be available. Under the new ICANN bylaws, the three primary candidates will have guaranteed membership in the Review Team. Acknowledging concerns about the lack of gender and geographic diversity in the pool of candidates, the GNSO Council encourages GNSO Stakeholder Groups and Constituencies to widely publicize calls for volunteers for future application processes.
