At present the Nominet board consists of 6 members: http://www.nic.uk/governance/board/ 2 executives: Bob Gilbert - Chairman Lesley Cowley - Chief Executive ***** Taylor also sits on the board panel as company secretary? 4 non-executives (elected by the members): Alex Bligh Gordon Dick Fay Howard Jonathan Robinson However under the Board composition proposal of the governance consultation (first proposed at EGM1): http://www.nic.uk/governance/consultation/boardcomp/ It suggests the board should be comprised of 9 members: Up to 3 executive directors Up to 3 elected non-executive directors and Up to 3 appointed non-executive directors One director will be elected by the membership per year. Non executives will serve 3 year terms, and will usually stand down after 6 years. The Chairman will be one of the "appointed non-executive directors". So if implemented what would the 2008/09 Nominet board look like? Would it be something like this (tongue-in-cheek): 3 executive directors: Lesley Cowley ***** Taylor Jay Daley 3 elected non-executive directors: Jonathan Robinson Gordon Dick Peter Gradwell 3 appointed non-executive directors: Bob Gilbert Anna Ford (famous person 1) Tim Berners-Lee (famous person 2) So the membership would rely on just 3 elected members to represent them?
