The Domain Name Association Completes Its Board With New Members from Afilias, Web.com, Neustar, Amazon & Asiamix Digital

The Domain Name Assocation has finalized its 12-member Board of Directors with the election of five new Directors. The DNA has been operating with an interim board since the trade group was founded last year by ARI Registry Services, Donuts, GoDaddy, Google, Rightside and What Box? to "educate the public about the expansion of domain names" (that, of course, referring to tidal wave of new gTLDs that began arriving this year). Many other members have joined since then and the newly constituted board will represent the full membership.

The newly elected Directors are:

Philipp Grabensee, 
Chairman of the Board 
Afilias Limited

Bob Wiegand
Senior Vice President, 

Jeff Neuman
VP, Registry Services
Neustar, Inc.

Stacey King
Senior Corporate Counsel

Vladimir Shadrunov 
Director of TLD Projects 
Asiamix Digital Ltd.

The DNA's Chairman of the Board, Adrian Kinderis, said, "The new members make our board stronger and will allow the DNA to address our industry's challenges and move forward energetically on our educational initiatives. Because our board members represent a range of important geographies and industry sectors, we are well positioned to act on international concerns and deliver truly global solutions."

Membership in The DNA is open to organizations involved in all aspects of managing domain names, including top-level domain name registry operators, registrars, resellers, and registry service providers. DNA leaders say organizations are joining to collaborate with peers, share best practice and ensure mutual success through this period of major growth of the Internet. DNA membership is organized as a multi-tiered structure to accommodate various levels of interest and desire for participation in the work of the DNA.

The DNA's mission is to "promote the best interests of the domain name industry by advocating the use, adoption, and expansion of domain names as the primary tool for users to navigate the Internet." More information is available on The DNA website
