I just received an email from the Internet Commerce Association (ICA) announcing that Daniel Law, a co founder of Rook Media, and currently a principle with Heron Investments Ltd., is taking on the position as Executive Director of the trade organization on an interim basis. Previously, the ICA had been operating without an Executive Director.
As ICA membership and the organization’s responsibilities have grown, this position has become increasingly important to fill.
Daniel will serve beside Philip Corwin, who has been the Counsel for the ICA for many years. In that role, Phil is responsible for lobbying on behalf of the ICA and helping to develop public positions and policies on behalf of the ICA. Daniel will also work closely with domain industry veteran Kamila Sekiewicz who serves as the ICA’s Operations Manager.
“The ICA is fortunate that Daniel is willing to take on this role, as he brings a combination of high level management expertise, in depth knowledge of the industry, dedication to the ICA’s mission and collegiality that would be quite difficult to match,” Nat Cohen told the ICA membership.
On Monday, January 23rd, the ICA will be hosting a session at NamesCon called The Most Shocking UDRP Decisions of 2016, and I think this is a session domain investors will want to attend. I also understand that the ICA will be hosting a dinner during NamesCon. Members and prospective members should consider attending to learn about how the organization helps domain name owners and how domain name owners can work with the ICA. More information will be forthcoming.
