ICANN Involvement

Mr. Amadoz is a Member of ICANN's Generic Names Supporting Organization GNSO gTLD Registries Stakeholder Group. He is also a member of various Working Groups, such as the Zone File Advisory Group, Vertical Integration PDP Working Group, Registration Abuse Policies Working Group, RAA Amendments Drafting Team, and the Policy Process Steering Committee.[2]

In a letter dated December 8th, 2011, Nacho, along with twenty-seven other domain name industry representatives, wrote to Sen. Jay Rockefeller and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison to support ICANN's new gTLD program, in response to the Senate Hearings taking place on the same day. They supported ICANN's argument that the program would be innovative and economically beneficial and noted that the program took a diverse group of international stakeholders years to develop.[3] The letter can be found here.
