Call for Expressions of Interest for 2020 | Nominating Committee Chair and Chair-Elect

ICANN is seeking expressions of interest for leadership roles in the 2020 Nominating Committee (NomCom) – that of the 2020 NomCom Chair and Chair-Elect.

In September 2018, the ICANN Board appointed J. Damon Aschraft as the 2019 NomCom Chair and Cheryl Ann Miller as the 2019 NomCom Chair-Elect. (icann.org/resources/board-material/resolutions-2018-09-16-en#1.e.) In the Spring of 2019, Ms. Miller stepped down from the position as Chair-Elect. Thereafter, in May 2019, the ICANN Board appointed Jay Sudowski as the NomCom Chair-Elect for the remainder of the 2018-2019 term. (icann.org/resources/board-material/resolutions-2019-05-03-en#1.h.)

Article 8, section 8.3(d) of the Bylaws states, “It is anticipated that upon the conclusion of the term of the Chair-Elect, the Chair-Elect will be appointed by the Board to the position of Chair.” While it is anticipated that the 2019 NomCom Chair-Elect will become the 2020 NomCom Chair, in support of continuous improvement in its accountability and transparency, the NomCom will evaluate the performance of the current NomCom leadership, and the results of that evaluation will be available to the Board Governance Committee (BGC) before it makes a recommendation to the full Board on the 2020 NomCom leadership. These reviews will be conducted by an independent third party provider and will consist of interviewing other NomCom leadership, NomCom members, and designated NomCom staff. The BGC will utilize the outcomes of these reviews in their processes leading up to the Board’s formal appointment of the 2020 NomCom Chair and Chair-Elect.

The NomCom Chair is responsible for organizing the NomCom in its activities to select certain ICANN Board members and individuals who will serve in key leadership positions within ICANN‘s supporting organizations (SOs) and advisory committees (ACs) in accordance with ICANN‘s Bylaws. The Chair is a non-voting member of the NomCom selected by ICANN‘s Board to serve until the conclusion of the next ICANN Annual Meeting.

The Chair-Elect, a position created as a result of an independent review of the NomCom, is not intended to fill an advisory role.

Throughout all NomCom activities, the Chair is responsible for ensuring that all NomCom operating rules and procedures are followed, and that all required documentation and reports are prepared in a timely fashion and provided to the proper parties as necessary.

Background

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.
