Resolution of the ICANN Board
Meeting Date: 
Mon, 8 Feb 2021
Resolution Number: 
2021.02.08.03
Resolution Text: 

Whereas, the Board Governance Committee (BGC) is responsible for "[c]reating and recommending to the full Board for approval a slate of nominees for Board Chair, Board Vice Chair, Chair and membership of each Board Committee, including filling any vacancies which may occur in these positions during the year; and overseeing the creation and membership of Board Working Groups and Board Caucuses."

Whereas, in this capacity, the BGC has recommended that Danko Jevtović no longer serve on the Board Audit Committee and that he be added to the Board Strategic Planning Committee.

Resolved (2021.02.08.03), the Board approves the change in membership of the Board Audit Committee and Board Strategic Planning Committee as recommended by the BGC.

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, and chairmanship and membership of each Board Committee, including filling any vacancies which may occur in these positions during the year.

As part of its responsibilities, the BGC is tasked with "[c]reating and recommending to the full Board for approval a slate of nominees for Board Chair, Board Vice Chair, Chair and membership of each Board Committee, including filling any vacancies which may occur in these positions during the year; and overseeing the creation and membership of Board Working Groups and Board Caucuses." (BGC Charter, Sec. II.C.)

In this role, the BGC recently assessed the membership of Board Committees and Danko Jevtović has agreed to step down from the Board Audit Committee and be added to the Board Strategic Planning Committee.

The appointment of Board Committee 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.
