      This is a call for nominations of individuals to serve as members of the
      Address Council, a body that is to be established under the authority of
      the Address Supporting Organization (ASO).
      This document describes the functions of the ASO, the Address Council and
      the role of the council members, as well as describing the process that
      will be followed in the selection of Address Council members. If you are
      interested in nominating an individual for this role, or if you are
      interested in being nominated as a member of the Address Council, please
      read through this document carefully.
      1. The Address Supporting Organization
      The ASO will be created though a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that
      will be executed between the current Regional Internet Registries and
      ICANN. The ASO is to be a consensus-based advisory body established within
      the ICANN Framework. The ICANN bylaws assign to the ASO the responsibility
      for the development of global policies relating to the distribution and
      registration of Interent address space, inter-domain routing identifiers
      and that part of the DNS name space that is used to name these addresses
      and identifiers.
      Normally, proposals for global policies within the area of ASO
      responsibility will be developed within the context of the RIRs' policy
      development forums and then forwarded to ICANN through the ASO.
      Submissions by interested parties and other ICANN bodies will also be
      considered by the ASO.
      The ASO is also responsible for the appointment of a number of Directors
      to ICANN, in accordance with the bylaws of ICANN.
      The ASO will conduct its business in an open and transparent fashion.
      2. The Address Council
      The Address Supporting Organization will create an Address Council to
      manage its business functions. Each RIR will select 3 individuals to serve
      as members of the Address Council, using an open and transparent
      The members of the Address Council will manage the process of the
      development of policy in areas defined as being the responsibility of the
      ASO, using the MoU-defined procedures as a guideline. Specifically, this
      will include the periodic hosting of an open General Assembly of the ASO,
      as well as the management of policy development activities.
      The other major aspect of the role of the Address Council is the
      appointment of Directors to the ICANN Board of Directors. The Address
      Council will follow the procedures described in the MoU, using an open
      call for nominations and an open process of selection.
      3. The Role of Members of the Address Council
      Each member of the Address Council is expected to serve for a period of 3
      years. The initial terms of appointment will be staggered terms of 1, 2,
      and 3 years to ensure that one third of the Address Council is appointed
      each year.
      No member of the Address Council shall be entitled to any compensation or
      reimbursement of expenses from the ASO. No member of the Address Council
      shall be imdemnified by the ASO, nor will the ASO obtain insurance
      coverage relating to the liability of the actions of members of the
      Address Council.
      Council members shall not represent any RIR, nor shall they act as a
      representative of any other body. The Council members are appointed in
      their individual capacity, and their membership shall not be proxied by
      any other individual or organization.
      One of the major tasks for the initial members of the Address Council
      shall be the development of appropriate open and transparent processes
      relating to the appointment of future members of the Address Council, and
      the adoption of procedures for the selection of appointments to the ICANN
      Board of Directors.
      4. Address Council Nominations Process
      Three individuals from the Asia Pacific Region will be selected to serve
      as initial members of the Address Council. The selection will be made from
      the set of individuals who have been nominated within this process.
      Any individual may be nominated within this process, with the exception of
      any staff member of any Regional Internet Registry. Self-nominations are
      Nominations are to be made by completing and submitting the form at
      http://www.apnic.net/aso/nominate.html .
      For further information, please see http://www.apnic.net/aso/ .
      All nominations must be submitted on or before 27 September 1999 and must
      be in English.
      All nominees will be contacted via email to confirm their willingness to
      serve as an Address Council member. If the nominee is not contactable via
      email then the nomination will not be confirmed.
      All confirmed nominations will be listed on the APNIC web site as soon as
      they are confirmed. A procedure to allow others to express support for
      nominated individuals will be published on this web site.
      The criteria for selection will include the individual's experience in
      serving the Internet community in the Asia Pacific region, expressions of
      support, familiarity with the intended roles of ICANN and the ASO,
      familiarity with the role of APNIC, residence in the Asia Pacific region,
      support from the individual's employer to the time and resource commitment
      required to discharge the duties of this role, and geographic diversity of
      the three individuals from within the Asia Pacific region.
      For reasons of the relatively short time allowed for the selection process
      for this initial Address Council, the members' Executive Committee of
      APNIC will select three individuals to serve on the Address Council. The
      Executive Council will take into account the criteria listed here. The
      basis of the decision will be documented in a selection report that will
      be published on the APNIC web site.
      The selected individuals will be announced on 4 October 1999.
