The Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) for a chair of the GNSO Guidance Process (GGP) in the Applicant Support Working Group.
Interested candidates should review the required role in the EOI document and apply by Tuesday, 27 September at 23:59 UTC.
Background on the GGP
The SubPro Final Report envisioned some levels of substantive work taking place during the Implementation Review Team (IRT) phase of the work, after the ICANN Board adopts the recommendations. For instance, Topic 17: Applicant Support, Implementation Guidance 17.5 of the SubPro Final Report suggests creating a dedicated IRT and charging it "with developing implementation elements of the Applicant Support Program."
Sometime after the submission of the Final Report, some community members made informal requests to the ICANN staff and the ICANN Board that formation of this "dedicated IRT" be expedited (i.e., before the ICANN Board approves the Final Report). The GNSO Council is committed to providing guidance on select topics, such as Applicant Support, and has determined that this is best accomplished via this GGP.
