Thanks for this.

I want to let the group know that on my self-nominaton, I have been 
appointed the GNSO council liaison to the SCI.  I will not, therefore, 
be a candidate for anything.

Since i have been in the vice-chair role, it means there is definitely 
an opening that needs nominees/volunteers.

I will for the time being remain the primary rep from NCSG, though I do 
hope to become the alternate at some point in time.
