Please be advised of the following current call for volunteers for a ccNSO
 Study Group  which means  that  shortly  this group will be activated and
begin its important work and ALAC will be asked  to provide the WT  with a
Liaison, and some (usually limited in number) members  as outlined...   We
need to start thinking on who we might  out forward as members along with
how they will be called for and selected/endorsed and most importantly  if
these members  will need to be supported (to facilitate discussion in our
regions on issues raised and addressed by the WT and to provide these
members with such input for their use) i.e. a wiki page (under ccNSO Liaison
space I assume)  and/or an internal  list etc.,  As the ALAC's ccNSO Liaison
I will be happy to participate as the ALAC Liaison  to this WT, and as soon
as I know  how many members for ALAC / At-Large  will be called for  I will
forward that information on...

 Dear all,

The ccNSO is now seeking volunteers to our Study Group on the Use of Names
for Countries and Territories.

The study group is expected to:

 1) provide an overview of current and proposed policies, guidelines and
procedures for allocation and delegation of strings currently used or
proposed to be used as TLDs that are either associated with Countries and
Territories (i.e., by inclusion on the ISO 3166-1 list) and/or are otherwise
considered representations of the names of Countries and Territories.

2.     A comprehensive overview of the types and categories of strings
currently used or proposed to be used as TLDs that are either associated
with Countries and Territories (i.e., by inclusion on the ISO 3166-1 list)
and/or are otherwise considered representations of Country and Territory
names.

3.     A comprehensive overview of issues arising (or likely to arise) in
connection with applying the current and proposed policies, guidelines and
procedures for allocation to types and categories of strings currently used
or proposed to be used as TLDs that are either associated with Countries and
Territories (i.e., by inclusion on the ISO 3166-1 list) and/or are otherwise
considered representations of Country and Territory names.

If considered appropriate by the study group, the study group will advise on
a course of further actions, if any, to resolve issues identified under 3.

For more detailed information, see
http://www.ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/use-of-names-statement-of-purpose-31jan10-en.pdf

The study group will also contain members and liaisons from other
stakeholder groups, such as the GAC, ALAC and GNSO.

If you are interested in joining this Study Group, please, let me know by
Monday, 14 February 2011 at the latest. You do not need to be a member of
the ccNSO to become a member of the Study Group!

Kind regards,

Gabi
