Hi All,

I'm checking in as well and am looking forward to being part of this working group.  I've known many of you over the years, working since the early days on a range of substantive policy issues from WHOIS to the UDRP, and, more recently, the RPMs.   In my former job as Vice President and Deputy General Counsel at Verizon, I participated on policy issues through the BC, and finished my term last year as a BC rep to the Nominating Committee.   I  retired from Verizon last year (after over 23 years) but am happy to be back at ICANN, having recently joined Mayer Brown.  I'm participating as a member of the IPC.

Congratulations to J. Scott, Phil and Kathy on co-chairing this esteemed group and look forward to our work together.

Let me join Kathy in collectively welcoming all those who have joined this WG and posted information regarding their backgrounds and interests.

We intend to go far on our RPM journey, and to get there we shall need to travel together in a spirit of cooperation and good will.

I am very pleased to be part of this working group along with colleagues and friends with whom I have worked over the course of my career.  I am currently  Senior Director for Internet Policy for the International Trademark Association (INTA).   I have a varied background in the legal profession where I have served as a  trademark examiner for the USPTO, in-house intellectual property counsel for a public health charity and a well-known Internet company respectively,  a government contracts specialist and, most recently, as general counsel to a K-12 educational association.  Internet governance and ICANN policy has factored into all of my various roles in some way.  I am currently treasurer of the IPC and a former executive committee member of NPOC and NCSG. When I am not on calls or reviewing comments, I practice yoga and fly kites.

Hi All,

I'm happy to be participating as a WG member.  I currently serve as one of the IPC's GNSO Councilors.  I'm also the vice-chair for the INTA Internet Committee.  I write the domain name treatise for Lexis-Nexis and my law practice focuses on  trademarks, domain names, and ICANN matters.  My thinking on domain name matters has been heavily influenced by each of our amazing co-chairs, Kathy, J. Scott and Phil and I look forward to this robust policy development process!
