Dear all,

a reminder on the Internet Society Call for Nominations for the NTIA/IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group. The call can be found here: http://www.internetsociety.org/news/internet-society-call-nominations-ntiaiana-stewardship-transition-coordination-group

On 14 March 2014 the United States government National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced its intent to transition stewardship of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions to the global multistakeholder community. The NTIA asked the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), as the IANA functions contractor and global coordinator for the Domain Name System (DNS), to convene a multistakeholder process to develop a proposal for the transition. While looking to stakeholders and those most directly served by the IANA functions to work through the technical details, the NTIA established a clear framework to guide the discussion and communicated to ICANN that the transition proposal must have broad community support and address the following four principles:

* Support and enhance the multistakeholder model;
* Maintain the security, stability, and resiliency of the Internet DNS;
* Meet the needs and expectation of the global customers and partners of the IANA services; and,
* Maintain the openness of the Internet.

The Internet Society has been requested to select two (2) nominees to act as its representatives to the Coordination Group and to notify these to ICANN by 23:59 UTC on 2 July 2014.
An open call to members of the Internet Society membership and broader community is therefore called, with candidates requested to submit a 250 word statement of interest as well as a separate summary of their relevant qualifications, skills and experience (curriculum vitae). Please submit statement to: ianacommittee at isoc.org<mailto:ianacommittee at isoc.org>.
