The Board Candidate Evaluation Committee (BCEC) has now concluded its Candidate evaluation process for the ICANN Board Director position selected by the At-Large Community. On behalf of the BCEC, we are pleased to announce that the following Candidates will go forward to the next stage of the selection process. The Candidates, listed in alphabetical order of the last name, are:

  • Alan Greenberg (Canada)
  • Leon Felipe Sanchez Ambia (Mexico)

That next stage of the selection process is planned and managed by the Board Member Selection Process Committee (BMSPC).

The process involves calls across Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) to discuss the BCEC Slate of Candidates, the option of possible petitions by RALOs to add to this Slate additional Candidates who have submitted Expression of Interests (EoIs) but were not selected by the BCEC, and the agreement on the Final Slate of Candidates. This process will culminate in an election among the Final Slate of Candidates by the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) Members and Regional At-Large Organization (RALO) Chairs.

The selection process is planned to be completed by Friday, 21 April 2017, with the announcement of the successful Candidate on that date. View the detailed timeline here.

Details of the full process are contained in Section 19 of the ALAC Rules of Procedure [PDF, 217 KB] (version adopted on 20 September 2016).
