Dear All, 


According to the Call for Membership <https://community.icann.org/x/Zr3bAQ>
for the new gTLD Review Group (RG), one of the requirements is that members
submit a Statement of Interest in which they:  


a. declare that they have no Conflicts of Interest (COI); or

b. disclose any possible or existing COI. 


A COI is defined as having an immediate past (previous 6 months), current or
predetermined interest (being financial or other) in a New gTLD Applicant or
any other party that is involved in any manner whatsoever with an applicant
or the proposed registry. In determining COI, reference should be made to
Section at page 84 of the AGB which details some COI Guidelines. All
members and RALOs will be informed of any changes in the gTLD RG's COI


In keeping with this requirement please find the SOIs of the RG nominees
that have been received to date on the New gTLD RG Workspace
<https://community.icann.org/x/u7-bAQ> . The nominees from AFRALO, APRALO
(one more nominee is required), EURALO and LACRALO have been recommended by
their RALO officers. NARALO will be holding a BigPulse vote beginning
Wednesday, 16 May to choose their two recommended nominees.  


Please note, the specific RALO the member belongs to will be asked to
confirm their SOI to the best of its ALS representatives' knowledge,
information and belief to the ALAC. 


Both the SOI and RALO confirmation will be reviewed by the ALAC to vet the
declarations, with final approval to join the gTLD RG being determined by
ALAC vote. In some instances it may be necessary for the ALAC to interview
the member.
