Subject: Selection of Bruce Tonkin by the Contracted Parties House to fill ICANN Board Seat 13
Dear Board Members and Liaisons,
It is my pleasure to announce that Bruce Tonkin has been selected by the GNSO Council Contracted Parties House to fill ICANN Board Seat 13.
Please see the resolution passed by the Council in Nairobi on Wednesday, 10 March, 2010.
Whereas, the ICANN Bylaws specify that the GNSO has the right to select two individuals to serve on the ICANN Board, commonly referred to as Board Seats 13 and 14;
Whereas, under the Bylaws, the Contracted Parties House of the GNSO Council selects the individual to fill Board Seat 13, and the Non-Contracted Parties House selects the individual to fill Board Seat 14;
Whereas, on 28 January 2010, the GNSO Council approved the process proposed by the Contracted Party House to select a representative to fill Board Seat 13 for the 2010 election, and amended its Operating Procedures to include that process (see - http://gnso.icann.org/meetings/minutes-council-28jan10-en.htm);
Whereas the Contracted Parties House of the GNSO Council has utilized that process to select Bruce Tonkin to serve as the Board member for Seat 13;
RESOLVED, The GNSO Council acknowledges the selection of Bruce Tonkin by the Contracted Parties House to fill ICANN Board Seat 13 and directs the GNSO Secretariat to make the necessary notifications to the Board and the community.
