Hirofumi Hotta of JPRS Re-Elected as the ccNSO Council Member
Hirofumi Hotta, Director of JPRS, was re-elected as the Council Member of ICANN ccNSO (Country Code Names Supporting Organisation).
ccNSO, one of ICANN's Supporting Organisations, was established under the bylaws of ICANN. ccNSO bears important roles in nurturing consensus across the ccTLD community relating various issues concerning ccTLD's, and in making policy recommendations to ICANN Board, by coordinating with the other ICANN Supporting Organisations and Committees.
ccNSO Council Member is to be first nominated by other ccTLD managers and then selected through election. Hotta who has been the Councilor since June 2004, has been vigorously contributing to ICANN activities, such as establishing Accountability Framework (a framework to formalize the relationship between ICANN and ccTLD registries), and reviewing global policies concerning Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs).
Due to termination of his current term as the Council Member, and through the process to select the successor, Hotta has been elected again to represent Asia-Pacific region. He will cotinue to serve until March 2011.
One of the biggest challenges for the ccTLD community today is to develop policies with regards to implementation of IDN ccTLD's. Hotta and JPRS will make full use of their knowledge and expertise in addressing this issue, as well as other relevant issues.
