These responsibilities include the election of two members to the GNSO Council and to ensure that views of Internet Service Providers and Connectivity Providers are appropriately communicated and understood throughout the GNSO policy-making community. The ISPCP also elects one representative to serve on the ICANN NomCom. This position is term-limited by the ICANN By-Laws.
