Subject: [gnso-secs] Expression of Interest for appointment of co-chair to the IANA Naming Function Review
Dear GNSO Council,
I would like to express my interest to be appointed as co-chair to the IANA Naming Function Review team. While I have previously not put myself forward for consideration as co-chair, mostly because of no prior experience chairing a group in ICANN, I have decided to reconsider my decision, and therefore hereby express my interest.
I have been an active member in policy work of the Non-Commercial Stakeholder Group (NCSG) here at ICANN since officially joining a stakeholder group in 2017, so I have a good understanding of the work of the GNSO in ICANN.
I am also a steering team member of the Free Software and OpenSource Foundation of Africa (FOSSFA). Other than my of volunteering leadership experience, I am a Technical Lead for NTT Australia. I therefore understand and use leadership, negotiation, influence and diplomacy skills daily.
In addition, I spend a fair bit of time researching and studying diplomacy, strategy and national security in cyber space, including Internet Governance in a post graduate degree I am currently pursuing at the Australian Defense Force Academy (ADFA).
I understand chairing a team like this will require a fair bit of time, so I am willing to set aside +/- 6 hours a week for this work.
It is my hope that my EOI is considered by the council.
Very Best Regards,
Tomslin Samme-Nlar
