[ga] FW: Acceptance of Nomination
Please find below the text of the message I just sent to "ga-nominations",
according to the instructions.
For the record, I did not have any official answer regarding eligibility in
relation to working for an international treaty organization not in a
policy-making position, but my reading of the Bylaws excludes this
If ICANN will give a different interpretation, I will of course step back.

> I have more than 25 years of experience in Information Technology and

> companies, multinationals, governmental agencies, and other institutions.

> 1d. Statement of the nominee's objectives in the role as Chair of the GA
> (including his or her views of the role of the GA and its relationship
> with the Names Council and Constituencies of the DNSO):
> If elected, my main objective will be to improve the effectiveness of the
> GA, by favouring an open debate focused on the issues, and making sure
> that the opinions of the GA are properly forwarded to the Name Council.
> In my opinion, the primary role of the GA is to provide an open forum for
> circulation of ideas and proposals on Domain-Names-related issues, in
> particular for, but not limited to, the individuals that do not belong to
> recognized constituencies.
> According to this philosophy, the GA should be independent from the Name
> Council, which is expression of the recognized Constituencies, but should
> have with the latter a relationship that is based upon collaboration and
> mutual understanding of the respective roles, and not upon a conflict
> between the Constituencies and the Individuals.
> Moreover, I do believe that the GA can potentially provide an interesting
> model for the future organization of the At-Large ICANN membership.
