The IAB has selected Russ Mundy to serve on the 2014 ICANN NOMCOM.  An active member in the IETF and ICANN communities, Russ serves as a vice-chair of the Security & Stability Advisory Committee of ICANN and has been an active participant in the IETF for many years, having implemented DNSSEC.  We wish Russ every success in this important role, and we encourage community members to share their views with Russ about the various leadership positions that he will have a part in selecting.

We thank everyone who put their name forward as a candidate for this position, as well as Ole Jacobsen for his years of service in this role.

On behalf of the IAB,
  Russ Housley

We would therefore like to ask the community for volunteers to serve on the ICANN NomCom. If you are interested, please send a short e-mail to iab-chair at with a copy to execd at with your motivation and information concerning your familiarity with the IETF and ICANN.  The deadline for volunteering is 19 July 2013.

The selected candidate will serve on the ICANN NomCom on personal title; however, we will be looking for a candidate who has an understanding of the interests of the technical community.
> The ICANN NomCom process itself is governed by the ICANN bylaws; an abstract of the relevant articles can be found at  In addition, each NomCom determines a number of its own operational procedures, including the role of the NomCom in recruiting and selecting candidates.

The committee will next attend the "Spring" ICANN meeting, which in 2014 will be in Singapore on 23-27 March 2014. Finally, the committee will meet during and after the "Summer" ICANN meeting in London on 22-26 June 2014 where the final slate of candidates for the ICANN Board, the GNSO, ccNSO,and ALAC will be agreed upon.
