Marianne, all

I am sure your work as coChair is greatly appreciate and you shall continue.

I believe now the relevant issue running is the WCIT in Dubai and though I
am not there I am following as I can the speeches and  getting some
feedbacks from colleagues about what is going on. Till now, things are
running smoothly as it gets, but my expectation is to have more complexity
as the event goes on. Brazilian position for instance  is not consistent
with the Marco Civil nor the reality we live here with the .br steering
committee showing the multistakeholder model since it was an steering
committee of a simple project back in the end of 90’s and always defending
neutrality of the net.  Brazilian position the Minister, chief of our
delegation,  is taking to Dubai is not aligned with Internet neutrality and
more, brings a distorted concept about neutrality. Hope that Brazilian
position will not prevail, but it is relevant to have all effort to
guarantee this will happen. 

 Let´s wait for the development of the event.

All the best,

Assunto: [IRPCoalition] IRP Coalition-Steering Committee (1)


Dear all

The Coalition needs to refresh its Steering Committee. At the Baku IGF a
number of people let us know that they are interested in serving on the
Steering Committee and some others currently on the committee indicated they
were willing to continue for another term (1-2 years). 

Before we send around the list of candidates, could all those from the
current Steering Committee let Matthias and I know whether you want to stand
again or wish to step down. 

If we could hear from you in the next couple of days that would be good. 

The plan is for all those wanting to stand to send through a brief statement
about why you want to stand (and I mean brief; 200 words only + links to
relevant work if you want). There are four stakeholder categories so please
indicate which one you are standing in; governmental, private sector, civil
society, academic. FYI, being on the committee consists of taking part in
occasional conference calls, working-group emails around specific topics or
projects, and being on hand to help the co-Chairs based on your respective
expertise and enthusiasm. 

Once the list of names and 'blurbs' is compiled we can send it around for
voting and/or endorsement from the coalition. More on those details shortly.

To get the ball rolling; as I am now co-Chair I hereby stand down as a
Steering Committee member. 

Looking forward to hearing back from current committee members so we can
things started.
