Domain Roundtable To Hold Mini-Auction To Benefit The Internet Commerce Association

by Chad Kettner in Categories: Up to the Minute

The Internet Commerce Association (ICA) announced in a press release that Thought Convergence has graciously offered time during the Aftermarket.com premium domain auction at the Domain Roundtable conference to sell domain names donated to the ICA by members and other supporters of the non-profit advocacy group.

The Domain Roundtable conference will be taking place June 14-17 in Washington, DC, and the Aftermarket.com auction will be held on June 16 from 4pm-7pm Eastern Time.

“The ICA was founded to protect and defend the rights of domain owners and developers. By participating in our first live auction event, each domain professional has the chance to directly affect the level of protection and pull that they have in Washington,” said Jeremiah Johnston, president of the ICA. “With the support of the Domain Roundtable organizers and those in the domain community who contribute, the ICA board is confident that a successful auction will help strengthen our resources and further our political progress.”

The ICA is encouraging others in the industry to donate domain names for this important auction event. Applicants can submit their names to the ICA by email at info_ica@internetcommerce.org.

All of the proceeds from the auction will be used to support upcoming ICA initiatives including lobbying for domain owner rights in Washington and with ICANN. Donors will also receive a personal “thank you” on the ICA website and an email confirming the sale price for tax purposes.
