>> Dear Members of the Internet Rights and Principles Coalition,
>> As Co-chairs of the IRPC, we¹d like to formally announce the
>> transition now that the election has concluded, first by
>> welcoming and reintroducing:
>> 1)	the new Steering Committee Member, Hanane Houjemi 
>> (http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/wks2013/panellist_2013_list_view.php?qbofm
mjtu_je=70) who seeks to promote the Charter further among governments in
>> the Arab region; 2)	and the new Co-Chair, Catherine Easton, who
>> intends to extend the Charter¹s influence as a tangible legal
>> framework, from both a legal perspective and through
>> access-focused activist groups.
>> We are also formally announcing the stepping down of Marianne
>> Franklin, Co-chair of the IRPC 2013-2014. Marianne has tirelessly
>> promoted the development of the Charter as a tangible published
>> document and has shepherded numerous copyedits, designs,
>> translations, and print runs of the Charter, which has been
>> translated in Arabic, Turkish, German, and now Spanish. Marianne
>> has also represented the Coalition at IGF-Baku, Bali, and
>> Istanbul, as well as EuroDIG (Lisbon and Berlin), and countless 
>> other Internet Governance venues, fora, and meetings leading
>> workshops, coalition building, advocating and fundraising. She
>> has also worked toward the implementation of the Charter within
>> policy instruments and outcome documents (see: 
>> http://internetrightsandprinciples.org/site/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Fiv
e-Year-Review_IRPC-Slides.pdf) and has worked to strengthen the IRPC¹s
>> role in collaborating with civil society groups in general and
>> dynamic coalitions within the IGF in particular. As IRPC Steering
>> Member, Marianne will continue to lead the Charter Booklet
>> Project. Thank you Marianne!
>> The coalition hopes to build on this good work - to grow the
>> coalition; implement Human Rights in Internet Governance with the
>> Charter as both an aspirational document and guide for policy
>> formulation; seek further partnerships to providing netrights
>> education and outreach; and to enhance and expand on coalition
>> building at the local, state, and regional level to uphold Human
>> Rights on the Internet for all.
>> Happy New Year and Best Wishes!
