ICANN Nominating Committee Candidate Recruitment Period Has Ended
24 April 2012

The 2012 Nominating Committee application period closed on Monday, 16 April 
2012 at 23:59 UTC.

The 2012 Nominating Committee (NomCom) has the task to select qualified 
candidates for the following key positions within ICANN:

 *   Three members of the Board of Directors
 *   Two At Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) representatives (one each from the 
North America and Europe regions)
 *   One member of the Council of the Generic Names Supporting Organization 
 *   One member of the Council of the Country-Code Names Supporting 
Organization (ccNSO)

At the deadline, the NomCom had received 72 Statements of Interest. Twelve 
candidates are from Europe, 15 are from Asia/Pacific, 24 are from Latin 
America, 14 are from North America, and seven are from Africa.  Fourteen 
candidates are female, 58 are male.

Candidates have expressed primary interest in serving as follows: 53 on the 
ICANN Board, 21 on the GNSO Council, 21 on the ccNSO Council, and 13 on the 
ALAC. Some candidates have asked to be considered for more than one position.

Individuals selected by the NomCom will have a unique opportunity to work with 
accomplished colleagues from around the globe, address intriguing technical 
coordination problems and related policy development challenges with diverse 
functional, cultural, and geographic dimensions, and gain valuable insights and 
experience from working across these boundaries of knowledge, responsibility 
and perspective.

The 2012 NomCom began its work in October 2011 after the ICANN Annual General 
Meeting in Dakar, Senegal, and has since then organized outreach events in 
multiple locations in addition to individual outreach activities performed by 
its members globally. The NomCom holds conference calls to plan and follow-up 
its work.

More information regarding the Nominating Committee can be found at 
http://nomcom.icann.org/. Selections will be announced in early September 2012. 
Successful candidates will take up their positions following ICANN's Annual 
General Meeting in October 2012.

Candidate questions or comments may also be emailed to
