      Call for Nominations
      Asia-Pacific Representatives to the ASO Address Council
      -------------------------------------------------------
      
      This is a call for nominations of individuals from the Asia Pacific region,
      to serve on the ASO Address Council. During October 2001, one Asia-Pacific
      Address Council seat will become vacant, and will be filled for the next
      three years by an individual nominated through this open call. The selection
      process will involve an open election to be held during the APNIC Open
      Policy Meeting, in Taipei, Taiwan, from 28 to 31 August 2001.
      
      This document describes the functions of the ASO and the Address Council, as
      well as the nomination and selection processes. If you are interested in
      nominating an individual, or if you are interested in being nominated as a
      member of the Address Council, please read this document carefully.
      
      
      1. The Address Supporting Organisation
      --------------------------------------
      
      The ASO was formed in August 1999 as a consensus-based advisory body within
      the ICANN Framework, though a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by
      the current Regional Internet Registries and ICANN.
      
      The ICANN Bylaws (http://www.icann.org/general/bylaws.htm#VI-A) assign to
      the ASO the responsibility for the development of global policies relating
      to the distribution and registration of Internet address space, inter-domain
      routing identifiers and that part of the DNS name space that is used to name
      these addresses and identifiers.
      
      More information about the ASO is available at: http://www.aso.icann.org
      
      
      2. The Address Council
      ----------------------
      
      The ASO Address Council co-ordinates the process of policy development in
      areas within the responsibility of the ASO, according to procedures defined
      within the MoU and by the AC itself. Specifically, these include the hosting
      of an annual open General Assembly meeting, and attending regular meetings
      by teleconference or in person at which policy issues and submissions may be
      considered.
      
      The other major responsibility of the Address Council is the appointment of
      individuals to fill ASO seats on the ICANN Board of Directors, according to
      procedures defined within the MoU.
      
      More information on the Address Council is available at:
      
      http://www.aso.icann.org/ac
      
      
      3. The Role of Members of the Address Council
      ---------------------------------------------
      
      Members of the Address Council do not represent any RIR, nor do they act as
      representatives of any other body. They are appointed in their individual
      capacity, and their membership cannot be proxied by any other individual or
      organisation.
      
      No member of the Address Council is entitled to any compensation from the
      ASO. No member can be indemnified by the ASO, nor can the ASO obtain
      insurance coverage relating to the liability of the actions of members of
      the Address Council.
      
      
      4. Address Council Nominations Process
      --------------------------------------
      
      Through this nomination process, one individual from the Asia Pacific Region
      will be selected to serve on the Address Council for three years, replacing
      Jianping Wu who has served as an initial AC member for the past 2 years. The
      selection will be made though an open election from the set of individuals
      who have been nominated within this process.
      
      Any individual may be nominated, with the exception of any staff member of
      any Regional Internet Registry. Self-nominations are permitted.
