ICANN Nominating Committee Progress

9 August 2006

After the revised close of the call for candidates for the ICANN Board, GNSO council, ccNSO Council and Interim ALAC, the Nominating Committee has received 89 Statements of Interest from members of the ICANN community and others interested in the positions.

The Committee is now proceeding with the next stages of its work: collecting references, evaluating candidates, addressing further questions to candidates, and meeting to select nominees. After further due diligence with respect to those chosen, the Nominating Committee will announce the names of the successful nominees not later than one month before ICANN's Annual General Meeting, to be held in Sao Paolo, Brazil on 8 December 2006.
