Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for your email below. I am pleased to see that the GNSO ultimately received an invitation to this "community session" which unquestionably involves matters of gTLD policy.

Jonathan, I would be very grateful if you were willing to reply thanking Olga for the invitation and confirming that we will convey the name of the GNSO representative very soon.

I will attend this session but do not wish to be put forward as representing the GNSO on the panel without input from Council colleagues. My concern about this panel has been procedural - that the GNSO be represented, not that I or any particular person be the representative.

Also involved in this issue is Carlos Gutierrez, who serves with me as GNSO co-chairs on the CWG Country and Territory Names; Carlos is the Council's liaison on that CWG.

Many thanks and best wishes in advance for any feedback received,

I have received the below and attached invitation from Olga Cavelli.

I expect that this is of interest to you and would like confirmation that you will be able to attend.
In addition, are you able to do the five minute presentation requested or could you suggest someone who may be able to?
