Public Comment: Community Input Requested on Academia Representation on NomCom

30 April 2011

On 21 April 2011, the ICANN Board approved the initiation of a 30-day period of public comment to obtain community input to inform the BGC's future work on the feasibility of identifying an entity to make appointments to the NomCom as called for in Article VII, Section 2.8.c of the Bylaws. The public comment will also address the potential proposed Bylaws amendments [PDF, 64 KB] regarding the removal of this Bylaws provision in the event that the public comment does not result in the identification of an appropriate entity or process for identifying such an entity.
