The ICANN Board, community, and organization are grateful for the community's tireless efforts and cooperative spirit shown over the last year. The collaborative contributions that community members have made through our Supporting Organizations, Advisory Committees, and other groups are central to supporting ICANN's mission. ICANN org is proud to help facilitate this work towards ensuring the security, stability, and resilience of the Internet.

We just completed a successful ICANN Virtual Annual General Meeting where we acknowledged the vibrant role and critical impact of our community. On 22 October 2020, we celebrated the contributions of 45 community leaders from our Supporting Organizations, Advisory Committees, stakeholder groups, constituencies, and the 2020 Nominating Committee who concluded a term of service between ICANN66 and ICANN69.
