I am copying the Council for their information.
Glen, can I ask that you contact each of the existing members directly and ask them on my behalf if they would like to remain as GNSO reps to the JIG?

> As part of the efforts to reinvigorate the participation at the JIG, would like to refresh the 5 official members from the GNSO (based on the joint charter, the JIG is formed by 10 official members, 5 from the GNSO and 5 from the ccNSO along with other observers) and also call for more volunteers to join the discussion.

> June Seo
> We are especially hoping to get more participation with the ongoing work on Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs. This is an issue that affects all new gTLDs as well with particular concern for IDN TLDs, which also makes it an issue of common interest with the ccNSO (with the introduction of IDN ccTLDs). In brief, it is the issue of technical barriers faced by new gTLDs, e.g. where some software filters do not recognize new TLDs, databases e.g. facebook profiles not accepting URLs and emails with non legacy TLDs, etc.
> Perhaps another round of call for volunteers as well as a refresh of the 5 official members would be useful. I can say that I am happy to continue to remain on the group and Rafik has also been participating actively. Wondering if Terry, Karen and June would like to continue to serve or others may be interested to join.
> Much thanks for the attention.
