Board notes there are nine vacancies on the Independent Review Panel and adopts procedures to fill those vacancies.
Whereas, the Address Council, the Names Council, and the Protocol Council have each appointed two members to serve on the Independent Review Panel Nominating Committee;
Whereas, the policy contemplates that nine initial members will be appointed to the Independent Review Panel;
Whereas, the Board has concluded that the Independent Review Panel Nominating Committee should be afforded 90 days to convene for the first time and to find qualified nominees for all nine initial vacancies; it is therefore
RESOLVED [01.49] that Board notes that there are presently nine vacancies on the Independent Review Panel;
FURTHER RESOLVED [01.50] that the Secretary is directed on behalf of the Board to notify the appointed members of the Independent Review Panel Nominating Committee of the vacancies and to request that the Nominating Committee convene to make nominations to fill those vacancies; and
FURTHER RESOLVED [01.51] that the Independent Review Panel Nominating Committee should be allowed 90 days after the date of notification to forward its nominations for the nine initial members of the Independent Review Panel to the Board, notwithstanding the provision, in Section 5.9 of the Independent Review Policy, setting a 45-day deadline for the nominations to fill vacancies generally.
