There is no such process mentioned in the bylaws -- the GA does not
elect representatives to anything.  

The NC selects the BoD of ICANN members.  The GA nominates candidates
for the BoD of ICANN, but, since membership in the GA is
unrestricted, that just means that anyone can nominate candidates for
the BoD.

There is no such item to proceed on.  

Personally, I don't think it would be a bad idea if the GA elected a
set of 3 NC reps, and I have proposed it several times.  But there is
no such requirement currently in the bylaws.
