LOS ANGELES – 31 January 2018 – The Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers (ICANN) Nominating Committee (NomCom) invites

individuals will have a unique opportunity to work with accomplished
colleagues from around the globe to help shape the Internet's technical

We are inviting applications and recommendations for the following

  * Three members of the ICANN Board of Directors

identifiers, and in particular, to ensure its stable and secure
operation. They will gain valuable insights and experience working on
topics including knowledge, responsibility, culture, and geography. They
will make a valuable public service contribution toward the functioning
and evolution of this essential global resource.

      Application Deadline and Process

For full consideration, ICANN must receive applications by 19 March
2018, 23:59 Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).

  * Submit an expression of interest through the online expression of
    interest request form <http://nomcom.icann.org/apply>or by
    emailing nomcom2018 en icann.org <http://mailto:nomcom2018@icann.org/>.

20 - 26 October 2018.

      Meetings, Travel, Reimbursement, and Compensation

These positions require regular participation in teleconferences and may
involve significant international travel, including travel to ICANN's
three annual Public Meetings. Meetings during 2018 will be held in San
Juan, Puerto Rico (10–15 March); Panama City, Panama (25–28 June); and
Barcelona, Spain (20–26 October).

Reasonable direct and properly documented expenses incurred in the
course of service will be reimbursed.

Each Board Member has the option to receive compensation in accordance
with the resolution passed by the Board on 30 July 2014, but it is not
required. (See Board Member Compensation


The NomCom is an independent committee tasked with selecting eight
members of the Board of Directors and other key leadership positions
within ICANN's structure.

It is designed to function independently from the ICANN Board,
Supporting Organizations, and Advisory Committees. NomCom members act
only on behalf of the interests of the global Internet community and
within the scope of the ICANN mission and responsibilities assigned to
it by the ICANN Bylaws.

NomCom members contribute their understandings of the broad interests of
the Internet community, and their knowledge and experience of specific
Internet constituencies that have appointed them. The challenge for the
NomCom is to integrate these perspectives and derive consensus in its
selections. Although appointed by Supporting Organizations and other
ICANN bodies, individual NomCom members are not accountable to their
appointing bodies.

NomCom members are accountable for adherence to the ICANN Bylaws and for
compliance with the rules and procedures established by the NomCom.

      About ICANN

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global
Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an
address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That
address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN
helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world.
ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation
with a community of participants from all over the world.
