Call for Nominations: 2017 MAG Renewal

The Internet Society (ISOC) is facilitating a process leading to recommendations from the Internet Technical Collaboration Group for participation in the 2017 Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG). This process is for the technical community candidates only and candidate evaluations will include their relationship to that community. Other communities have their own processes.

The purpose of the Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) is to advise the U.N. Secretary General on the programme and schedule of the Internet Governance Forum meetings. The MAG comprises of 55 Members from governments, the private sector and civil society, including representatives from the academic and technical communities. Those nominated should expect to attend two virtual MAG meetings per month as well as typically three face to face meetings per year.

Individuals interested in being suggested by the Nominating Committee are invited to complete the Nomination Form in full and return it to [email protected] by 2359 UTC on Tuesday, December 6th. In addition, applicants are asked to provide responses to a set of Questions that are specific to the Internet technical community. Applications with incomplete responses to either set of questions will not be considered. Preferred formats for document submissions are .pdf and .txt. ISOC will transmit the names of nominees to the United Nations no later than December 16th 2016.

Both sets of questions should be answered completely. Responses need not necessarily be lengthy, but they must be sufficiently content-full that the Nominating Committee can accurately judge from them the extent and specifics of your background. If the applicant believes that an existing CV or biographical sketch would contribute to the Nominating Committee’s understanding of the candidacy, such a document may be provided in either PDF form or in the form of a link.
