Subject: [Internet Policy] 1net Steering Committee & Brazil Committees – Call for expressions of interest – Internet technical community


Dear all,
The Internet Society (ISOC) is coordinating the process leading to appointments to represent the Internet technical community in two of the “Brazil Planning Committees” and in the “1net Steering Committee”
The “Brazil Planning Committees” will contribute to the preparation of a “Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance” that will be held on 23 and 24 April 2014, in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
The two major tasks of “1net Steering Committee” will be (1) to liaise with stakeholder communities and encourage participation and submission of productive ideas with respect to Internet governance issues; and (2) to steer, manage, and otherwise lead the activities of the 1net platform towards a productive understanding and possibly consensus with respect to these issues.
Individuals interested in being suggested by the NomCom set up for this purpose are invited to read more about the process and the timeline here: 
The deadline for submitting expressions of interest is 10 January 2014.
