Dear Associate Members,
I am writing to update you on the progress and process for the reconstitution of the auDA Board.
As previously advised, the .au Domain Administration Ltd Nomination Committee was established earlier this year and in accordance with its charter is now moving to select candidates for a reconstituted auDA Board.
The Board will consist of six independent directors, one of whom will be the independent Chair plus four elected directors. An advertisement calling for expressions of interest for the positions of Independent Chair and five independent directors appeared in the Australian Financial Review on Friday, 19 July 2019. A very strong response has been received. The independent Directors will be recommended by the Committee for appointment to the Board.
An advertisement calling for expressions of interest for the positions of four elected directors will now appear in the Australian Financial Review on Friday, 9 August, 2019. auDA Associate Members will elect these four Board members from a slate of candidates approved by the Committee later this year.
Kathleen Townsend Executive Solutions has been engaged to assist the search process.
We look forward to keeping you informed throughout this process.
Chair, .au Domain Administration Ltd
