Subject: [gnso-rpm-wg] New Chair Nomination

Esteemed colleagues,
With nearly two weeks before our first meeting and new people joining this group on a regular basis, I would recommend that we continue to accept nominations for the leadership positions of this new WG.

Like J.Scott Evans, I served on the Final Drafting Team of the UDRP in 1999. With other friends in this WG, I served on Special Trademarks Initiative team (STI) that wrote the final versions of the Uniform Rapid Suspension and Trademark Clearinghouse adopted by GNSO Council and incorporated into the New gTLD Applicant Guidebook. Chuck Gomes, then Chair of the GNSO Council, wrote about the STI: "I have never been so impressed with the cooperative spirit of everyone on a team."

I have served on innumerable ICANN task forces, working groups and a review team. I am co-founder of ICANN's Noncommercial Users Constituency and a member of the Noncommercial Stakeholders Group. I also lead the Internet Law & Policy Group of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth in Washington DC.

I would be honored to represent this Working Group as chair for the important work ahead.

Best regards,
Kathy Kleiman
