ICANN Publishes Bylaws Amendments and Documents to Implement the NomCom2 Review

17 April 2023

Today, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) opened a new Public Comment proceeding.

Certain recommendations from the second Organizational Review of the Nominating Committee (NomCom2 Review) require amendments to the ICANN Bylaws and the creation of a NomCom Standing Committee. The ICANN Board grouped the amendments with a proposed Standing Committee Charter and a proposed statement defining "Unaffiliated" Directors for efficiency and the ease of community understanding.

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 nonprofit public benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
