The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' (ICANN) Nominating

Each Board Member has the option to receive compensation in accordance with
the resolution passed by the Board on 30 July 2014, but is not required to
do so. (*See*

The NomCom is an independent committee tasked with selecting eight members
of the Board of Directors and other key positions within ICANN's structure.

It is designed to function independently from the ICANN Board, Supporting
Organizations, and Advisory Committees. NomCom members act only on behalf
of the interests of the global Internet community and within the scope of
the ICANN mission and responsibilities assigned to it by the ICANN Bylaws.

NomCom members contribute understanding of the broad interests of the
Internet community as a whole, and knowledge and experience of specific
Internet constituencies who have appointed them.

The challenge for the NomCom is to integrate these perspectives and derive
consensus in its selections. Although appointed by Supporting Organizations
and other ICANN bodies, individual NomCom members are not accountable to
their appointing bodies.

NomCom members are accountable for adherence to the ICANN Bylaws and for
compliance with the rules and procedures established by the NomCom.
