Dear All,

As announced<http://www.icann.org/en/news/announcements/announcement-11feb13-en.htm> on 11 February, ICANN has committed to identifying ICANN Meeting locations two years in advance. After consideration that adoption of a prior Consolidated Meetings Strategy proposal was not timely, the Public Participation Committee (PPC) initiated work to create a working group to address the meeting location strategy which was presented to the ICANN Board for approval in February 2013.

In line with the Board resolution<http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/documents/resolutions-02feb13-en.htm#2.a> adopted on February the 2nd 2013, ICANN is creating a new Meeting Strategy Working Group<http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/participation/mswg> (MSWG) and now invites interested individuals to apply for Volunteer Member positions - in representation of a Supporting Organization or Advisory Committee - to serve on the Meeting Strategy Working Group.

The mandate and Mission of Meeting Strategy Working Group as defined in the MSWG Charter is as follows: to discuss and propose strategy for the structure, purpose and locations for ICANN Public Meetings and conferences, starting in 2015.

Candidatures will be accepted until Sunday, 3 March 2013 - 23:59 UTC.
