Thanks Avri. Although technically not a Council "member", I believe I 
am the longest serving "something", both in cumulative and consecutive years.

I should have pointed out, for those who are moderately new to ICANN 
or the GNSO, that Cheryl has an "interesting" history. She is of 
course the outgoing NomCom chair, and in the past has been ALAC 
Chair, ALAC Liaison to the ccnSO and I believe a ccNSO member 
(representing .au).

In addition, she has been working on a wide variety of GNSO 
activities over many years. A sampling include the re-write of the 
GNSO Operating Procedures, a number of PDPs and currently Cross 
Community WG - Implementation Advisory Group for Competition, 
Consumer Trust & Consumer Choice, Cross Community Working Group on a 
Framework of Principles for Future CWGs, Cross Community Working 
Group on the Use of Country and Territory Names as TLDs,
GNSO Policy and Implementation Work Group and GNSO non-PDP Data & 
Metrics for Policy Making Working Group (Co-Chair).

As far as I can tell, most of the teleconferences she attends are in 
what most people would consider the middle of the night in Australia...
