The Address Supporting Organization has appointed Raimundo Beca of Chile as a Director on the ICANN Board serving in Seat 10. His current term will commence immediately and will continue through the new term which will end six months following the ICANN Annual Meeting in 2006. Previous to Mr. Beca’s appointment, the seat was held by Lyman Chapin.

In fulfillment of the quoted portion above, I received the following message on 11 May 2004 from Mark McFadden on behalf of the Address Council of the Address Supporting Organization:
