Resolution Number: 
Resolution Text: 

Whereas, pursuant to Section 7.2 of the PTI Bylaws, ICANN as the sole member is required to annually elect a President of PTI.

Resolved (2021.10.28.39), the ICANN Board, in its role as sole member of PTI, hereby re-elects Kim Davies as the President of PTI.

Rationale for Resolution: 

The resolutions taken here today fulfill ICANN's responsibility, as the sole member of PTI, to annually elect the President of PTI. The regular election of a PTI President allows the PTI Board to continue its work.

The election of the PTI President is taken fully in line with the obligations as set forth in the PTI Bylaws.

These actions confirm ICANN's continued commitment to its Bylaws' obligations surrounding the performance of the IANA Functions that are contracted to PTI. This also directly serves ICANN's mission to ensure the stable and secure operations of the Internet's unique identifiers, and serves the public interest in the continued stable performance of the IANA functions.

None of the actions taken today are anticipated to have any impact on the security, stability or resiliency of the DNS, though PTI is essential to ICANN's security, stability and resiliency work. There are resource implications in supporting PTI, which are reflected in the PTI, IANA and ICANN Budgets.

The appointment of the PTI President is an Organizational Administrative Functions for which public comments were not necessary.
