What it is |  This is the presentation to community of the draft report of the Nominating Committee review Working Group, containing recommendations to the Structural Improvements Committee and the Board.

Why it's important |  The Nominating Committee review WG follows up on the independent review finalized at the end of 2007 by external consultants. The first positions expressed in 2008 by the WG needed to be validated once terminated the process of review of other key structures of ICANN, which are strictly interlinked with the review of the NomCom. The NomCom review WG has recently updated the initial findings from the early phases of the review and presents now its draft recommendations, for public consultation.
The outcome of this review is particularly important in consideration of the high significance of the role plaid by the Nominating Committee of ICANN in terms of selection of individuals that will be called to play a key role of governance of the organization.
