The Nominating Committee is charged with recruiting and selecting a portion of ICANN’s leadership. The Nominating Committee is mandated to ensure that ICANN’s overall leadership is diverse in geography, culture, skills, experience, and perspective. Selectees should have the following basic criteria:

  • Have integrity, objectivity, and sound judgment.
  • Support decision-making within groups.
  • Work effectively in English.
  • Understand ICANN’s mission and operation.
  • Are committed to ICANN’s success.
  • Have experience in world affairs.
  • Contribute to cultural, professional, and geographic expertise.
  • Can work long and hard, generally as volunteers, for the global public trust.

A Message From The Chair

This year’s Nominating Committee was fortunate in that we received many applications from highly qualified candidates. Of significant note, we received more applications from the African region than any other region. This was critically important as we were mandated to select at least one Board candidate from Africa to meet ICANN’s geographic diversity requirements. Through our rigorous process we selected two extremely well qualified Board candidates from Africa. Also, we were delighted to be able to reappoint Maarten Botterman (Europe) to a second term on the ICANN Board.

On behalf of the Nominating Committee, I want to thank all those who applied for leadership positions at ICANN. While we could not appoint the vast majority that applied, we encourage all to continue participation within ICANN as the involvement is valued and important to ICANN’s mission.

Finally, we want to extend our congratulations and best wishes for the successful applicants. The Nominating Committee has the utmost confidence in their ability to help lead the organization forward and we are thrilled that they will be joining or continuing with ICANN in a leadership position.

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.
