RE: [registrars] ICANN Budget Committee appointments
like to self-nominate for the ICANN budget committee. InterAccess
is one of the smaller registrars, but
also part of a larger telecommunications company, so we have a strong vested
interest in keeping
a successful organization. I feel a bit immodest in self-nominating, but
I'm the only active ICANN
and Registrar constituency
representative from my firm. However, I do have the full support and
of my company.
InterAccess has been an accredited registrar since July
of 1999, and operational since January, 2000.
led all of our efforts in this regard.
InterAccess was founded in 1993 as an Internet Service
has been providing customers with domain name registration services, either as
an NSI partner/
reseller or later as a
registrar, since the summer of 1993. So, we have a lot of
experience in this industry,
though we are a small-volume registrar.

We recently received from Louis Touton a request for appointments for 3
registrars to work on the ICANN budget committee.. here is a portion of
"I am writing you in your capacity as the Registrar
representatives on the Names Council to ask your guidance on
of the budget group that will be providing input on the
ICANN's budget for the 2001-2002 fiscal year.
You will note that three members of the budget group are intended to
representatives of .com/.net/.org accredited registrars. As noted
memorandum, to keep the process on schedule nominations must be made
24 January 2001. "
Personally, I feel that it is very important that these 3 appointments be
balanced amongst the registrars by volume. hence I am asking for
recommendations or self-nominations for parties interested in
please post an indication of self-interest, or a recommendation for
someone you feel would be a good candidate to represent the registrars,
to the registrar maillist with a copy to mike palage.
we will close the nomination process next Wednesday at 24:00 GMT and on
Thursday post the list of names and ask all accredited registrars to pick
3 persons from the list to represent us on this committee.
please do not recommend anyone to this list without first checking to
insure that they are willing to participate.
thanks for your quick attention to this matter
p.s. I sincerely hope that we have a good balance in
all three categories (I.e. high volume, medium & and moderate or low
