CAll for Nominations for ICANN Board of Directors RIPE NCC Service Region

Archived This content has been archived and is no longer actively maintained.

This is an open call for nominations of interested individuals to serve on the Board of Directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), as a nominee of the ICANN Address Supporting Organisation (ASO).

The ASO will have the responsibility for nominating three ICANN Directors. This responsibility will, in the normal course of events, be conducted through an open process as outlined in the Memorandum of understanding as published at the following URL.

http://www.ripe.net/info/ncc/icann-mou-oct99.html

For the initial ASO nominations to the ICANN Board, the ASO Address Council will nominate three Directors to serve terms of 1, 2, and 3 years. This process has been initiated by the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) through this open call for nominations. The process of selecting the initial ICANN Directors from the ASO nominations will be defined and managed by the Address Council.

ASO Process for Nominating ICANN Directors

Any individual may be nominated within this process, with the exception of any official of a national government or a multinational entity established by treaty or other agreement between national governments (ICANN ByLaws Art. V., Sec 5.). Self-nominations are permitted.

However, no member of staff of an RIR is eligible to be appointed to the ICANN Board, and no ASO-appointed Director may serve simultaneously on the Address Council. The Directors appointed by the ASO will not represent the ASO on the Board, but will function as full Directors of ICANN.
