      will be open to all parties with an interest in ASO policy matters. A
      detailed meeting agenda will be published in due course on the ASO web site
      at: http://www.aso.icann.org.
      In compliance with the ASO MoU <http://www.aso.icann.org/docs/aso-mou.html>,
      the Address Council and ICANN hereby call for nominations to the ICANN Board
      to fill vacant ASO seats on the ICANN Board. The next such seat scheduled to

      candidates nominated at this time may also be chosen to fill other seats
      that may become vacant before or after this time. Note that appointments to
      the ICANN Board must satisfy the geographic diversity contraints specified
      in section 3c. of the ASO MoU. Nominees from North America, South America
      and Europe are eligible this time.
      Any individual may be nominated within this process, with the exception of
      any official of a national government or a multinational entity established
      by treaty or other agreement between national governments (ICANN Bylaws Art.
      VI., Sec 4). Self-nominations are permitted.
      Nominations should be sent by e-mail to <secretariat at aso dot icann dot org> and
