Board appoints Professor Florencis Utreras to the 2006 Nominating Committee.
Alejandro Pisanty presented facts regarding a Board Governance Committee request for the full board to pass a resolution regarding the designation of a Nominating Committee Member from the academic and similar types of organizations. Alejandro Pisanty moved and Hagen Hultzsch seconded a request that the Board adopt the following resolution:
Whereas, ICANN Bylaws Article VII, Section 2.8, provides that the Nominating Committee shall include a voting delegate from an "entity designated by the Board to represent academic and similar organizations";
Whereas, the Board Governance Committee has sought recommendations for this appointment in a transparent, plural manner, asking for other legitimate organizations to provide names that fit the criteria for NomCom membership, which process has resulted in the recommendation of Prof. Florencio Utreras, a well-recognized Chilean Internet leader.
Whereas, Prof. Utreras is at present the President of CLARA, a consortium of Latin American and European research networks, and thus is able to represent a large and varied constituency, and has indicated that he is ready to serve on the Nominating Committee.
Resolved [05.16], Prof. Florencio Utreras is designated to represent academic and similar organizations on the 2005 ICANN Nominating Committee.
This resolution was approved by the Board by a vote of 15-0, with no abstentions.
