Consistent with the ASO Memorandum of Understanding and ICANN Bylaws, the Address Supporting Organization Address Council (ASO AC) calls for nominations for Seat Number 9 on the ICANN Board of Directors.
Nominations will close at 23:59 UTC on Wednesday, 31 December 2014.
The time frame for the selection process is as follows:
The ICANN Bylaws state that no two directors selected by a Supporting Organization can come from the same Geographic Region. Because the ASO AC selection for Seat 10 is from the APNIC region, nominees for Seat 9 cannot also come from this region.
All candidates must sign a Letter of Certification declaring that they are of good character. The selected candidate will undergo an independent due diligence review by an ICANN contractor, and announcement of the candidate will follow once this review has been successfully completed.
Community members are invited to submit nominations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including the following information:
