If you're an ICANNWatch reader, you may be the sort of person who knows about the issues ICANN faces and who might be able to contribute to the ICANN Board, The Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council,
the Interim At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC), or
the Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) Council. And it turns out that you haven't quite missed the deadline to apply:
ICANN Nominating Committee Extends Deadline for Submissions to 1 August 2006
7 July 06
ICANN's Nominating Committee (NomCom) announced today that it has extended
its deadline for Statements of Interest to 1 August 2006 (23:59 GMT).
The 2006 Nominating Committee began its work in March of this year and is
actively seeking qualified candidates for the following key positions within
The ICANN Board of Directors
The Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council
The Interim At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC)
The Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) Council
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.
Selection criteria, eligibility factors, roles of each position, application
procedure, and contacts are posted at: http://www.icann.org/committees/nom-comm/formal-call-2006.html.
Statements of Interest may be sent to email@example.com. Submissions will be handled confidentially and should be received by 23:59 GMT on 1 August 2006 for full consideration. Statements of interest should be submitted as e-mail messages and NOT as attached files. Selections will be made in October, with service beginning in December 2006.
It seems that the previous nomcom also extended its deadline, so this is becoming something of a tradition...
