All 3 candidates accepted their nomination, and due diligence verifications will be starting shortly. An election will be held - starting in January 2020, after completion of the due diligence verifications - according to the timeline previously agreed upon by the ccNSO Council. The ccNSO Council and ccNSO members have agreed that the ccNSO members shall propose and elect candidates for the two ICANN Board seats allocated to the ccNSO, and that the winner of said election - i.e. the candidate that receives the majority of the votes cast - shall in turn be nominated to the ICANN Board seat by a majority vote of the ccNSO Council.
A Q&A session will be held at the upcoming ccNSO Members Meeting at ICANN66 in Montréal, Canada. This Q&A session will provide the ccNSO members and broader ccTLD community an opportunity to interact with the candidates. Session chair is Byron Holland (.ca), Vice Chair to the ccNSO Council.
