Domain Community Invited to Submit Nominations for ICA's 2021 Lonnie Borck Memorial Award

The Internet Commerce Association will be presenting their 5th annual Lonnie Borck Memorial Award in January (as in past year's the honoree will be presented during the year's first NamesCon conference). The award will go a person who has helped foster a sense of community within the domain name industry. Anyone can submit a name for consideration using this online form before the November 7, 2020 deadline. After nominations close, ICA members will vote on the top three submissions and the ICA Board will select the winner.

The ICA established the Lonnie Borck Memorial Award in 2016, shortly after the late great domain investor and humanitarian who unexpectedly passed at the age of 47. Lonnie was universally loved for his generosity and selflessness. 

Lonnie Borck

The first three Lonnie Bock Memorial Award recipients were chosen based on their exceptional efforts in "championing the rights of domain name registrants" and as such came from the legal arena. Starting with the 2020 award, presented last January, the criteria was broadened to include every corner of the domain industry. 

Previous winners of the Lonnie Borck Memorial Award:

2017 - David Weslow

2018 - John Berryhill

2019 - Kathy Kleiman

2020 - Ron Jackson

Now you can help choose the 2021 winner and you are also welcome to share the form link with your industry colleagues.
