Rationale for Resolution: 

Article 7, Section 7.2 and Article 14 of the ICANN Bylaws call for the Board to appoint the Board Chair, Board Vice Chair, as well as the chairs and membership of each Board Committee, including filling any vacancies which may occur in these positions during the year. The appointment of the Board leadership and Board Committee leadership and membership is consistent with ICANN's Mission and is in the public interest as it is important to ensure that the Board and its Committees have the properly skilled expertise to carry forth ICANN's Mission, Commitments and Core Values.

This decision will have no direct fiscal impact on the organization and no impact on the security, stability or resiliency of the domain name system.

This decision is an Organizational Administrative Function that does not require public comment.
