Independent Review of Nominating Committee

Open: 19 July 07
Closed: 17 September 07

Explanation:The Interisle Consulting Group is conducting an independent review of the Nominating Committee (NomCom). The NomCom selects of 8 members of ICANN’s Board of Directors; 3 members of the ccNSO; 3 members of the GNSO; and 5 members of the ALAC.

Interisle’s review team is gathering information from many different sources, including interviews with people who have participated in or closely observed the NomCom process, and seeks public input from anyone who has information or observations to contribute concerning any aspect of the role, structure, or operation of the NomCom. Please use the “Add Comment” link below to send an email to the evaluators.

The principal objectives of the Review are to determine (i) whether the NomCom has a continuing purpose in the ICANN structure, and (ii) if so, whether any change in structure or operations is desirable to improve its effectiveness.

Since this is an independent review, comments sent to the team will not appear on an ICANN comment forum. Comments may appear in the final report, although that is down to Interisle to decide. The final report will most likely also form the summary/analysis part of this consultation.
