ICA Seeking Nominees for 2018 Lonnie Borck Memorial Award

Last year, the Internet Commerce Association (ICA) honored the memory of Lonnie Borck by naming an industry award in his memory. The Lonnie Borck Memorial Award is given each year to recognize an individual or organization for extraordinary efforts in championing the rights of domain name owners. The inaugural recipient in 2017 was David Weslow of Wiley Rein.

This year, the ICA is opening up the nomination process to the entire domain name industry. Domain investors and others who are active in the business of domain investing are invited to submit a nomination.  The ICA Leadership team will create a committee to review the nominations and the committee will select 3 nominees. ICA members will be polled to select the winner of the award from the nominees.

If you know someone who you believe is deserving of the award, please submit a nomination. Submissions should be accompanied with your reason for the nomination, which will give the committee background information about the nominee and why you feel that he or she is deserving of the award.

There are many unsung heroes in the domain name space who work hard on behalf of domain name owners and domain investors. The Lonnie Borck Memorial Award will honor someone who is deserving of recognition for the work they do. The 2018 Lonnie Borck Memorial Award will be given at NamesCon in January 2018.
