Awards
Season! ICA Taking Lonnie Borck Award Noms –
.ORG Impact Awards to be Presented Next
Week  

The
Internet
Commerce Association
(ICA)

has started accepting nominations
for the 4th annual Lonnie Borck
Memorial Award
. The ICA created
the award in honor of the widely
known and universally loved domain
investor who passed four years ago
this month. The accolade was
originally designed to recognize
outstanding work in protecting the
rights of domain name registrants.
That criteria led to the first three
awards going to David Weslow,
Kathy
Kleiman and John
Berryhill
. However, this year,
in keeping with Lonnie’s generous
spirit, The ICA decided to broaden
the scope
of the award to honor
those whose contributions have fostered
a sense of community
within the
domain name industry. 

With
that in mind, the ICA is inviting everyone
in the domain community to take part
in the process by submitting
suggestions for the nominees. You
can use this short nomination form to
do that and you are also welcome to
share the submission link with your colleagues,
on blogs or through social media. The
nomination period will remain open
until October 15, 2019
Once the nomination period
closes, ICA
Members
will select the
three finalists for the award, then
the ICA
Board
will choose the
winner from the three finalists that
members select.

As
has been the case in previous years,
the presentation of the award will
be made in a ceremony at the annual NamesCon
conference that is coming up January
29-February 1, 2020
in
Austin, Texas
. NamesCon just
opened registration
for the show this week and reported
over 1,000 sign-ups within the first
24 hours. 

In
June, I
told you about

another awards program that
was being launched for the
first time – the Public
Interest Registry’s .ORG
Impact Awards
.
The ballots for the inaugural
awards have now been 

counted
and a list of the 33
finalists
 released.
The winners in the various
categories will be revealed
at the .ORG Impact Awards
gala on October 10, 2019
at the historic Watergate
Hotel
in Washington,
D.C. 

While
the evening gala is an
invitation only event,
earlier the same day, Public
Interest Registry will host a free, open to
everyone
.ORG
Community Forum

at The Madison in Washington,
D.C.
