ANNOUNCEMENT: ICANN Call for Submissions of Interest for Leadership
              Positions is issued; submission deadline is 15 June 2005.

Dear Colleague,

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has posted a call for recommendations and statements of interest for leadership positions on its Board of Directors and its Supporting Organizations. Additional details, including the URL of the complete details and the application form, are contained below.

I encourage you all to read the material below and to consider who might be appropriate and strong candidates for such submissions, and to make recommendations of suitable individuals. Interested individuals may also submit a statement of interest directly.

If any of you have any questions, comments or recommendations that you would like to discuss with me directly please feel free to do so.

Remember, the nominating committee appointments are intended to represent the broad interests of Internet users, not the particular interests of registrars. Thus, I would ask all of you to be both broad and creative in thinking about who may be appropriate for these positions. The help of registrars and others outside of Europe and North America is especially appreciated, but, of course, ALL help and input is appreciated.

Please feel free to redistribute this message to any and all relevant individuals and groups.


Elliot Noss
Member, Nominating Committee



The ICANN Nominating Committee invites Recommendations and Statements of Interest from the community as it seeks qualified candidates for the following positions:

     -  two members of the ICANN Board of Directors;

     -  two members of the Council of the Generic Names Supporting
        Organization (GNSO);

     -  one member of the Council of the Country-Code Names
        Supporting Organization (ccNSO); and

     -  three members of the At Large Advisory Committee (ALAC).

Those individuals selected by the Nominating Committee 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.

Additionally, those selected will gain the satisfaction of making a valuable public service contribution. Placing the broad public interest ahead of any particular interests, they will help ensure the stability and security of the Internet for critically important societal functions.

These voluntary positions are not remunerated, although direct expenses incurred in the course of duty may be reimbursed. These positions may involve significant international travel, including personal presence at periodic ICANN meetings, as well as regular telephone and Internet communications.

Candidates should be women and men with a high level of qualifications and experience with an international outlook including some familiarity with the Internet. They should be prepared to contribute to the collective decision-making process among ICANN's constituencies, supporting organizations and advisory bodies.

Selection criteria, eligibility factors, roles of each position, application procedure, and contacts are posted at:


Applications will be handled confidentially and should be received by 12:00 GMT on 15 June 2005 for full consideration. Selections will be made in October with service beginning in December 2005.
