Internet Commerce Association Seeking Nominations for the 6th Annual Lonnie Borck Memorial Award

When NamesCon returns to in-person conferences with NamesCon Global this summer in Austin, Texas, one of the highlights will be the Internet Commerce Association's  presentation of the 6th Annual Lonnie Borck Memorial Award. The honor will go to someone voters across the industry will select in recognition of that person's efforts to "foster a sense of community within the domain name industry."

Anyone is welcome to submit a name for consideration using this online form before nominations close at the end of the day, May 31. ICA members will then 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 unexpectedly passed at the age of 47.  Lonnie was universally loved for his generosity and selflessness.

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

The previous winners of the Lonnie Borck Memorial Award were:

2017 - David Weslow

2018 - John Berryhill

2019 - Kathy Kleiman

2020 - Ron Jackson

2021 - Michael Cyger

Now you can help choose the 2022 winner and you are also welcome to share the form link with your industry colleagues!
