Alejandro Pisanty presented the proposed Compensation Committee Charter on behalf of the Board Governance Committee and moved to have the below resolution read into the record, and Hagen Hultzsch seconded the motion:

Whereas, Article XIII, Section 8, of the ICANN Bylaws provides that "The compensation of any Officer of ICANN shall be approved by the Board."

Whereas, the Board Governance Committee has concluded that it would be beneficial for the Board to form a new committee to evaluate and make recommendations to the Board on compensation issues, and has drafted a proposed charter for the establishment of such a committee.

Whereas, the Board has reviewed the proposed charter for a Compensation Committee and has determined that the establishment of the committee would be in ICANN's best interests.

Resolved (05.91), that the Board establishes a Compensation Committee as a Committee of the Board as provided by Article XII, Section 1 of the Bylaws.

The board approved the resolution 13-1 by a voice vote with Raimundo Beca voting against.
