Hi Janis,

it feels like an oversight, but it appears the RrSG is not represented 
in this group. To correct this oversight, I hereby volunteer.

Best regards,

Volker Greimann

> 3.Priority 1 questions, or questions related to a system for 
> standardized access/disclosure, will be reviewed first.
> 4.Priority 2 items will be moved to the corresponding worksheets for

> expected deliverable of the topic.
> 5.Once the initial parameters are agreed to, the Legal Advisory Group 
> can better determine necessary legal guidance (if any) and will begin

> Laureen Kapin
> Brian King
> Margie Milam
> Thomas Rickert
> Kristina Rosette
> Tatiana Tropina
> I invited these individuals due to their legal expertise, but also

> Legal Advisory Group’s activities will be supported by ICANN staff and
