I think ICANN is hiring more compliance people. ICANN has a compliance
director, Stacy Burnette and several compliance managers I believe.

Thanks for the reminder in the attachment about the
Upcoming ICANN Whois Data Accuracy Audit, planned for
the 2007 calendar year... but I'm confused... I still
see the job posting for the Contactual Compliance
Manager whose duties will be "to conduct studies and
audits on the accuracy of the WHOIS directory and make
recommendations for changes"... has the position
actually been filled?
