Dear all,

Greetings from Gambia! I am writing to follow up on this very important announcement forwarded by Glen (thanks!).  As you might know, the review activities are a critical component of the Affirmation of Commitments ICANN entered with the US government, and which is a milestone in ICANN's development as a global Internet governance organization.  This, coupled with the fact that Africans have traditionally had little participation in ICANN activities makes it especially important we rise up to the challenge this time.  I am thus urging all interested people who are debating whether or not they should apply to please do so.  It would be great if you do because success would mean a louder voice for Africa, and our greater say in ICANN's affairs.

And good luck if you apply.

Salutations de Gambie! Je vous écris pour donner suite à cette annonce très importante transmis par Glen (merci!). Comme
vous le savez certainement, les activités d'examen sont un élément
essentiel de Affirmation of Commitments de l'ICANN conclu avec le
gouvernement des États-Unis, et qui est un jalon dans le développement
de l'ICANN en tant qu'organisation mondiale gouvernance de l'Internet. Cela,
combiné avec le fait que les Africains ont toujours eu peu de
participation dans les activités de l'ICANN, il est particulièrement
important que nous relever le défi de ce temps. J'exhorte
donc toutes les personnes intéressées qui sont discuter pour savoir si
elles doivent ou non s'appliquer à s'il vous plaît le faire. Ce
serait génial si vous ne vous parce que le succès se traduirait par une
voix plus forte pour l'Afrique, et notre mot à dire dans les affaires
de l'ICANN.

Et bonne chance si vous la présentez.
