[icann-nominations] Date: Wed, 5 Mar 2003 14:11:51 -0800

Today I have the privelege of nominating two highly qualified candidates
for the GNSO election to the ICANN Board.    In this e-mail, I have the
pleasure of nominating Susan Crawford, a candidate I consider to be
eminently qualified for the position of director.

1a. Full name of the nominee: Susan Crawford      
1b. E-mail address of the nominee: scrawford@scrawford.net
2a. Full name of the nominator:    Jordyn A. Buchanan    
2b. E-mail address of the nominator: jbuchanan@registrypro.com

1. Accomplished persons of integrity, objectivity, and 
intelligence, with reputations for sound judgment and open 
minds, and a demonstrated capacity for thoughtful group 

Susan Crawford is (or soon will be) a law professor at the Benjamin
Cardozo School of Law in New York.  She was for many years a partner
with Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering in Washington, DC.  She is well-known to
the ICANN community, having been active in the past on behalf of the
.coop registry.  (If she is elected to the Board, she will not represent
private clients in the ICANN context.)  She has been an active member of
the registry constituency since the new TLDs joined that group.  She has
also been active as a writer about ICANN issues and policy, and is
well-versed in the history, structure, and mission of ICANN.

2. Persons with an understanding of ICANN's mission and the 
potential impact of ICANN decisions on the global Internet 
community, and committed to the success of ICANN; 

Susan has a deep understanding of ICANN's mission and role in the world,
and is committed to ICANN's success.

3. Persons who will produce the broadest cultural and 
geographic diversity on the Board consistent with meeting 
the other criteria set forth in this Section; 

It would be good idea not to have Linda Wilson remain as the sole female
member of the Board.

4. Persons who, in the aggregate, have personal familiarity 
with the operation of gTLD registries and registrars; with 
ccTLD registries; with IP address registries; with Internet 
technical standards and protocols; with policy-development 
procedures, legal traditions, and the public interest; and 
with the broad range of business, individual, academic, and 
non-commercial users of the Internet; 

As a commentator on the ICANN world, and through attendance at most of
the ICANN meetings over the last several years, Susan has acquainted
herself with many of the constituencies and members of the ICANN
community.  She is extremely knowledgeable about ICANN matters.

5. Persons who are willing to serve as volunteers, without 
compensation other than the reimbursement of certain 
expenses; and 


6. Persons who are able to work and communicate in written 
and spoken English.
