Dear colleagues and fellow stakeholders of the Internet Governance Forum:

At the 9th meeting of the Internet Governance Forum, various
stakeholders discussed their common desire to request an immediate
extension of the IGF mandate, in order to create stabiity for the
organization and predictability for those engaged in seeking funding for
projects.  We have drafted a statement to send to the UN, to request not
just an immediate renewal of the IGF mandate, but rather an open-ended
re-authorization of the IGF as a voluntary, multistakeholder forum.  We
request that other participants in the IGF also support this message on
or before November 1.

We will be creating a neutral website for this project at
www.IGFcontinuity.org  very shortly, to accept sign-ons of organizations,
countries, and individuals.  In the meantime, the undersigned will
collect your signatures and description of your organization if you are
able to endorse this letter by the time of the closing ceremony at IGF
2014.  The deadline to be included in the letter presented via the Chair
will be 11am UTC, Friday September 5.
Examples of how you will be listed appear below:
1.  Jane Smith                       Individual
2.  Acme Industry Association        Association representing 150 manuacturers of widgets
3.  State of [x]                     Country

  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
