ICANN Considers Board Remuneration

ICANN logoThe ICANN board is considering the possibility of paying itself, not just the Chair as currently happens given the amount of time given by board members.

At its meeting on 25 August, the board directed staff “to take all steps necessary to consider the appropriateness of compensation for voting Directors.”

As part of the process, the board is retaining an Independent Valuation Expert, in this case Towers Watson, a human resources consultant, “to consult with and to advise the Board regarding the appropriateness and level of any Director compensation arrangements.”

As a result of this process, the board is seeking a “Reasoned Written Opinion” to guide them on their deliberations.
