Subject: IANA Staffing Changes
The IANA announces two changes in its staff in Marina del Rey
(one addition, one departure) and a realignment of some
responsibilities for tasks at the IANA.
Michelle M. Schipper will join ICANN on January 18 in the
position of Administrative Assistant for the IANA. Josh Elliott,
who is currently handling various IANA responsibilities, has taken
a job in the for-profit sector. His last day at ICANN will be
January 27, although he will be available for consultation to
ensure continuity in the handling of pending requests
With these changes, responsibilities at the IANA will be
realigned to ensure that all requests are resolved promptly
Assignments of protocol parameters (such as port numbers)
will be handled by Ms. Schipper with the guidance
and supervision of Joyce Reynolds and Suzanne Woolf.
Handling of administrative functions involving root
management (including requests for ccTLD delegations
and updates to the root zone and root Whois information)
will be the responsibility of Louis Touton.
For the present, all requests to the IANA should be
directed to email@example.com. To speed handling of
requests, in the near future we will be implementing
and announcing topic-specific e-mail addressses.
The IANA will miss Josh and his many contributions, and
wishes him the very best in his future endeavors at
the forefront of a rapidly evolving Internet.
