Dear all,


This survey is sent out by the ccNSO secretariat on behalf of the ccNSO
Participation Working Group. The Working Group's goal is to improve the
participation of ccTLD managers in the ccNSO and regional organisations, for
the benefit of all ccTLDs and the industry generally. The charter for the
working group can be found at

The data collected in this survey will be used by the working group in order
to gain a better understanding of why people participate or don't
participate in the ccNSO, and how the ccNSO can improve. The results of the
survey will be published on the ccNSO website, but all data will be
anonymised prior to this.
