Empowered Community Administration
The administrative body through which the Empowered Community acts. For example, when the community decides to bring a concern to the ICANN Board or the ICANN organization, it does so through the Empowered Community Administration. If the Empowered Community enters mediation proceedings brought under the ICANN Bylaws, the Empowered Community Administration appoints individuals to represent the Empowered Community.
The Empowered Community Administration is composed of one representative from each of the five Decisional Participants.
