Please pardon the crossover if you are on this list and not interested in the consumer constituency. A bunch of folks on NA are, though, and time is short, so:
If you have been an interested part of the consumer constituency discussions, we have been asked (along with all other constituencies) to volunteer one person for the GNSO's Standing Committee on Improvement Implementation (SCI). You would be representing the proposed (candidate) consumer constituency.

Please let me know right away if you are interested.
