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

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 their understandings of the broad interests of
the Internet community, and their knowledge and experience of specific
Internet constituencies that 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

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

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global
Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an
address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That
address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN
helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world.
ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation
with a community of participants from all over the world.
