I absolutely will want to second @Michael J. Oghia <mike.oghia at gmail.com>
's nomination.

Over the years, I have worked and interacted with @Michael J. Oghia
<mike.oghia at gmail.com> in different IG spaces and I can attest to
capability getting things done if it is committed into his hands.

I have no reservation about his nomination as I see him contributing to the
principles and vision of the coalition.

> Dear IRPC members,
> With this email, I would like to offer two nominations. One is for the
> nomination of *M**inda Moreira* to reprise her role as *co-chair* over
> the 2020-2022 period. She has done a phenomenal job with Marianne and the
> IRPC Steering Committee to ensure climate issues as well as other issues
> such as the rights of refugees, migrants, and other marginalised groups are
> on the agenda. I am excited for IRPC's path forward, and I am confident she
> can continue to lead well.
> For the second nomination, I am officially *self-nominating myself* for
> the open *IRPC Steering Committee* position. The opening of this position
> comes at an ideal time, which I hope my statement of intent below affirms.
> Should anyone else support my nomination, I would be grateful for a second.
> *Statement of intent*
> My name is Michael J. Oghia, I live in Belgrade, Serbia, and I am
> currently the advocacy and engagement manager for the Global Forum for
> Media Development (GFMD). I have been involved with the IGF community and
> wider Internet governance ecosystem since 2015, and have been actively
> searching for an appropriate position where I could serve as an advisor.
> Not only do I meet all the criteria of a successful IRPC Steering Committee
> member, but the shifting focus of the IRPC to the relationship between
> human rights, the environment, and ICT sustainability provides an ideal
> space for me to contribute my expertise and the networks I have built since
> I began writing about and advocating for these issues in 2016. I am
> confident that, if elected, I could help shape the IRPC's engagement
> strategy going forward, be a vital resource for the community, and also
> take full advantage of my existing experience and connections to other
> IGF Dynamic Coalitions to the benefit of the IRPC. I have been closely
> involved in planning the last two IRPC sessions at the IGF, and I look
> forward to generating even more positive momentum going forward. In
> addition to my experience with Internet governance and ICT sustainability,
> I have also worked in conflict resolution, journalism & media, policy, and
> development for almost 10 years across five countries: the US, Lebanon,
> India, Turkey, and Serbia. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have,
> and  encourage to check out my LinkedIn
> <https://linkedin.com/in/mikeoghia> for more information. Thank you for
> your time and consideration!
> Best,
> -Michael
