to join and contribute to the ccNSO. Whenever i have the opportunity to
attend ICANN meetings , this process becomes much easier.
I actively participate in a number of working groups namely the Strategic and
Operational Planning Committee, the meetings working group and lately the New
gTLD Subsequent Procedures Sub Team Track 5 on Geographic Names which i
joined recently after the call from the ccNSO. I am also a member of the
meetings working group.
