Does At-Large have any role in this?

As one of Fadi's early (and pre-Bali his ONLY) community supporters, it
would send a poor message to At-Large if our support was answered by being
shut out of the subsequent initiative.

Subject: Nominations Open for Civil Society Reps to 1Net Steering
Committee: Mon. 9 Dec. deadline to nominate a civil society
To: NCSG-DISCUSS at listserv.syr.edu


Friends,

We've been told by Adiel that each of the following stakeholders will
receive 5 spots on the 1Net Steering Committee: business, civil society,
academia, technical.  Therefore the coalition of civil society networks
(NCSG, APC, Diplo, IGC, Best Bits) is working to nominate 5 representatives
for civil society to the 1Net Steering Committee.  We are using the same
committee and process that we used to nominate the 2 civil society
representatives to the High Level Panel on IG last week.

Therefore, we are now accepting nominations for civil society
representatives to the 1Net Steering Committee until Monday 9 December
23:59 UTC.  You can nominate someone else or yourself by posting the
nomination to this list before then.  Before you nominate another please be
sure that your nominee has already agreed to serve on the 1Net Steering
Committee if she/he is selected by the larger coalition as one of the five
civil society representatives.

Also bear in mind that we will be similarly impaneling the civil society
representatives to the Brazil meeting organizing committees in the coming
weeks also, but the 1Net Steering Committee's establishment has a tighter
deadline so we are dealing with it first.

Of course it would helpful to know just what 1Net has been set up to do and
what is the scope of its work before agreeing to serve on its steering
committee, but those things haven't been set yet - its largely a chicken
and egg paradox.   Therefore, those people who are most interested in
shaping the form and direction of 1Net should consider serving on its
initial steering committee.

Thank you!
Robin
