Many of you are aware of the current call for nominations to attend an IGF Retreat scheduled to take place in July  in NY and where civil society members are requested to submit their nominations to be considered for endorsement by the CSCG.
A good number of our members have openly expressed their desire, suggesting CS groups not to participate in this process given a lot of irregularities that this call bears in itself (timing, venue, transparency, openess, inclusion, nature of the retreat, etc).
I would like to start a discussion within IGC to have your feelings if we should (as one of the 5 members of the CSCG) withdraw from the process and ask the CSCG not to nominate CS representatives or not. As per the CSCG rules and procedures, if more than 2 (out of 5 members) is against a process, this should stop.
Please do share your thoughts on this and explain your stand. I am not sure how we will come up with a consensus but atleast this discussion can help us for future similar situations and help us make an informed decision.
Should you feel we don't need to discuss this question, please disregard this email, or if you want to clarify some aspects of this email, you are more than welcome.
As the IGC Co-coordinator, i felt it is important to start such discussion. Note that the nomination period which was extended is closing in few days.
