Thanks AR for the Call - well done all!!

Just one question (not to you only but to all concerned): How many times can
an individual be allowed to receive the Fellowship? I thought New Faces each
time would bring New Ideas and Opinions whilst gaining the exposure to the
ICANN's Intnl Public Meetings, make contacts etc?.

My thinking is that  geared towards widening the participation at these
major events - it is a voluntary role at the end of the day - I would
support the opinion that award of Fellowships should look at the need to
have New Faces as much is it is applicable. It is a resource for all to tap
into equally because the Internet Phenomenon affects everybody everywhere.

It is a humble suggestion

Well done all!!
