Nominating Committee (NomCom)
The Nominating Committee (NomCom) is an independent committee tasked with identifying and selecting individuals for leadership positions. The ICANN Bylaws call for NomCom to make a specified number of appointments to the ICANN Board of Directors (Board), the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council, the Country-Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) Council, and the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC).

NomCom Organizational Review
The purpose of the review is to determine whether the organization has a continuing purpose in the ICANN structure; and if so, whether any change in structure or operations is needed to improve its effectiveness. As mandated by the ICANN Bylaws, the reviews are performed on a five-year cycle.
