Call for Volunteers: ccNSO Meetings Programme Committee (MPC)

Date: 
02 November 2018

The ccNSO seeks additional volunteers for the ccNSO Meetings Programme Standing Committee (MPC). The objective of the MPC is to coordinate and manage the high-level schedule of the ccNSO-related sessions, including the ccNSO Members Meeting agenda at ICANN public meetings, and related matters.

If you are interested in joining the MPC, kindly send an e-mail to joke.braeken@icann.org, including a short paragraph on your background and your affiliation with a ccTLD Manager. Closing date of this call for volunteers is Friday, 16 November 2018, 23:59 UTC.

Workload & working method

Every member needs to be able to invest a few hours leading up to the next ICANN meeting towards the work of the group. The group meets through telephone conferences (1 hour), and potentially in face-to-face meetings during the ICANN meetings. However, most work is done online. Calls are scheduled based on input provided via doodle polls.

Who can join?

Membership of the ccNSO MPC is open to all ccTLD managers, whether members or non-members of the ccNSO.

How to join and next steps

If you are interested in joining the MPC, kindly send an e-mail to joke.braeken@icann.org, including a short paragraph on your background and your affiliation with a ccTLD Manager. Closing date of this call for volunteers is Friday, 16 November 2018, 23:59 UTC.

Once we have received your intent to join the MPC, the ccNSO Secretariat will send you a Public Data Consent Form. (consult the template here: https://ccnso.icann.org/about/personal-data-publication-consent-16feb18-en.pdf) Via this form, you consent to ICANN processing data in order to add you as a member of the MPC and its mailing list(s). The form explains the information ICANN will process to administer your participation in the MPC and how the information will be used this purpose.
