[registrars] Fw: [ga] DNSO board elections
Elections are due to be held shortly by the DNSO for ICANN Board members. Amadeau's tenure is expiring and he must be either replaced or re-elected. The email below provides an outline of the nomination process. Please note that while the GA is responsible for the nominations, the NC votes in the DNSO members.
Registrars need to consider whether to put up a candidate - and if so, who. Time is now running short. It would be useful if :
*people interested in standing could indicate their interest; and
* the Registrar constituency could put forward a candidate.

Subject: [ga] DNSO board elections
It has been suggested I clarify the procedure for the forthcoming DNSO board election. The reference is by-lawsVI-B 2 e and precedent.
The nomination process for candidates is naturally via the GA as the all-embracing body of the DNSO. Interested parties have simply to join the GA to nominate.
In order to ensure candidates have some hope of success an endorsement list of 10 names is required for the candidate to go forward to the NC for the election itself. Those candidates will be screened for diversity criteria and a final candidates list produced.
Diversity under the by-laws means that "no two directors serving on the Board selected by the NC shall be citizens of the same country or of countries located in the same Geographic Region." DNSO board directors remaining are Alejandro Pisanty (Mexico) and Jonathan Cohen (Canada). This means the current election must select a candidate from Europe, Asia/Australia/Pacific or Africa.
The DNSO secretariat will post details of the timetable in due course.
