HH asked whether anyone present was aware of any other nominations. No other
nominations were raised.

PW noted that after receiving the self-nomination by Rafael Molina, he sent
a request for further information including a CV, yet this was not received.
It therefore seems that this nomination is not complete, and need not to be

appointed easily.

HP explained that the nomination or Mr Park came from KRNIC, with strong
recommendation due to his involvement in Internet legal and governance

PW noted that Ching-Yi Liu has attended many ICANN meetings, and is very
well qualified. She is enthusiastic to join this committee and the CV shows
that she is suitable in many ways.

CW moved to accept the two names (Mr Park and Ms Liu).

WW seconded the motion, noting that it will be necessary to determine the
terms of each of the members (one will serve for 3 years and one for 2

HH called for a vote on the motion to appoint the two candidates. He noted

(PC) for the GA, to set the agenda and make the meeting happen.

previously posted). It was suggested that the committee should select a
chair and report back to the AC.

HH noted that according to the ASO MoU a call for nominations to the ICANN
Board needs to be sent out at least 90 days prior to each General Assembly.
