Thank you João for the support. I'm also hoping all sectors of LAC get to
be well represented on MAG.
I've now seen also the process for applying as technical community in a
message I'm forwarding below.
As mentioned by Nadira Alaraj to continue the email exchanges, our next
messages may also address a version of these questions for CS.
All the best,
Renata Aquino Ribeiro

Subject: [Internet Policy] Call for Applications - Internet Technical
Community Representation in the IGF MAG
Please share the call below through your networks.
Call for Applications for Internet Technical Community Representation in the
Internet Governance Forum Multistakeholder Advisory Group 2016 (MAG)
The purpose of the Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) is to advise the
U.N. Secretary General on the programme and schedule of the Internet
Governance Forum meetings. The MAG comprises of 55 Members from governments,
the private sector and civil society, including representatives from the
academic and technical communities. Those nominated should expect to attend
two virtual MAG meetings per month as well as typically three face to face
meetings per year. <http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/magabout> More
The Internet Society (ISOC) is facilitating a process
<http://www.internetcollaboration.org/nominations/> leading to
recommendations from the Internet Technical Collaboration Group for
participation in the 2016 <http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/magabout> MAG of
the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). A Nominating Committee (NOMCOM)
consisting of senior members of the Internet technical community is
currently being formed and will provide nominations to be transmitted to the
United Nations for consideration. Candidates should be aware that
nominations may or may not be accepted by the UN.
Individuals interested in being suggested by the Nominating Committee are
invited to complete the Nomination Form

Internet technical community. Both the form and the answers to questions
should be returned to information.itcg at gmail.com by 2359 UTC on Friday,
January 22nd. Applications with incomplete responses to either set of
questions will not be considered. ISOC will transmit the names of nominees
to the United Nations no later than February 1st. More details on the
nomination process can be found here
Both sets of questions should be answered completely. Responses need not
necessarily be lengthy, but they must be sufficiently content-full that the
Nominating Committee can accurately judge from them the extent and specifics

understanding of the candidacy, such a document may be provided in either
PDF form or in the form of a link.
