I am also member of SSAC and Julie is doing a great job. I support and
recommend all to support her to continue to be our liaison.
 See you there in Toronto
( I cannot express more than the personal knowledge and references for EDMON
and EVAN, so also support their indication to remain at their positions)

Liaisons to serve from October 2012 to ICANN AGM 2013

Good Morning All,

Thank you to Sandra, Yaovi and Tijani for your confidence in nominating me
to continue in the position of SSAC Liaison.  I am happy to accept the
nomination.  I am very conscious that I have been (and continue to be) on a
steep learning curve this year.  I hope, as I grow in my understanding of
both ALAC and SSAC, that I will be better able to serve you all.  I regret
that I will be unable to join you in person in Toronto as I have work
commitments in Australia that week.  However, I will attempt to
electronically join as many SSAC and ALAC session as I can.  I wish everyone
in advance safe travels, and productive and successful meetings.

Warm regards,

Julie Hammer
