Hello All,

Following the discussion at the Council meeting, I propose we now issue
a call for nominations for candidates for ICANN Board seat #14 for the
period from 21 Feb 2005 to 11 March 2005.

Nominations should be e-mailed to the GNSO Secretariat.

Each nomination must be accompanied by a brief description of how the
candidate meets the following selection criteria from the ICANN bylaws. 


ICANN Directors shall be:

1. Accomplished persons of integrity, objectivity, and intelligence,
with reputations for sound judgment and open minds, and a demonstrated
capacity for thoughtful group decision-making;

2. Persons with an understanding of ICANN's mission and the potential
impact of ICANN decisions on the global Internet community, and
committed to the success of ICANN;

3. Persons who will produce the broadest cultural and geographic
diversity on the Board consistent with meeting the other criteria set
forth in this Section;

4. Persons who, in the aggregate, have personal familiarity with the
operation of gTLD registries and registrars; with ccTLD registries; with
IP address registries; with Internet technical standards and protocols;
with policy-development procedures, legal traditions, and the public
interest; and with the broad range of business, individual, academic,
and non-commercial users of the Internet; 

5. Persons who are willing to serve as volunteers, without compensation
other than the reimbursement of certain expenses; and

6. Persons who are able to work and communicate in written and spoken


1. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no official of a
national government or a multinational entity established by treaty or
other agreement between national governments may serve as a Director. As
used herein, the term "official" means a person (i) who holds an
elective governmental office or (ii) who is employed by such government
or multinational entity and whose primary function with such government
or entity is to develop or influence governmental or public policies.

2. No person who serves in any capacity (including as a liaison) on any
Supporting Organization Council shall simultaneously serve as a Director
or liaison to the Board. If such a person accepts a nomination to be
considered for selection by the Supporting Organization Council to be a
Director, the person shall not, following such nomination, participate
in any discussion of, or vote by, the Supporting Organization Council
relating to the selection of Directors by the Council, until the Council
has selected the full complement of Directors it is responsible for
selecting. In the event that a person serving in any capacity on a
Supporting Organization Council accepts a nomination to be considered
for selection as a Director, the constituency group or other group or
entity that selected the person may select a replacement for purposes of
the Council's selection process.

3. Persons serving in any capacity on the Nominating Committee shall be
ineligible for selection to positions on the Board as provided by
Article VII, Section 8.
