>> Dear colleagues,

>> (Arsene). As you know, the IGC is operating with two volunteers called
>> “Co-coordinators”.

>> this call while we were still working on the server but so many of you only
>> saw it later on when the system was restored back.
>> We invite members of the IGC to nominate candidates (please check with
>> them first about their willingness to serve), or to nominate themselves as
>> Co-coordinator to serve for 2 years, from 2017-2019. All you need to do is
>> to send TO THE LIST your statement of interest (in the body of an email and

>> -          Your full name
>> -          Your country of origin and of residence
>> -          Anything we need to know about your work/involvement with
>> IGC/IGF/Civil Society activities. (200 words max)
>> -          Why do you think you can be a good Co-coordinator for the
>> IGC? (Max 200 words)
>> -          What’s your vision for the IGC during your term if elected?
>> Pick up to 3 current issues we face in the group that you will consider as
>> priority during your first year. (Max 200 words)
>> The nomination period will be open until midnight UTC on May 10th,
>> 2017. After this date, we will circulate a resume of candidate's profiles
>> and enable a voting link to all IGC members in order to elect our new
>> co-coordinator.
