Deadline Extended for the NomCom2 Review Survey

12 October 2017

LOS ANGELES – 12 October 2017 – The deadline for community input has been extended until Monday 6 November 23:59 UTC. The Analysis Group, the independent examiner conducting the second review of the ICANN Nominating Committee (NomCom2), announced this survey to collect input from those who have interacted with NomCom and/or have ideas for ways to improve it. Please share your input by taking the survey found at this link: http://nomcomsurvey.cloudssi.com/.


The NomCom plays a critical role within ICANN. It nominates appointees to the ICANN Board, the Public Technical Identifiers (PTI) Board, the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) and Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) Councils, and the At-Large Advisory Committee. Organizational reviews are mandated by ICANN Bylaws Section 4. This organizational review will assess how effectively the NomCom is operating, how well it is achieving its purpose, and if it is accountable to the multistakeholder community.

Next Steps

Following the survey, the independent examiner will attend ICANN60 to conduct further review work. The draft final report of the independent examiner will be posted for public comment, and the review is expected to conclude by mid-2018.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
