For the representatives of the technical community, the Internet Society (ISOC) is coordinating the process leading to recommendations from the Internet Technical Collaboration Group (ITCG) for the renewal of the MAG.

You may also want to review the IGF website as well as information about the MAG to better the understand role of the MAG. Again, the deadline is Monday, November 25th.

Please do consider applying as we need to ensure the Nominating Committee has a great range of candidates from which to choose for this important role in the Internet governance space.

NOTE: While this information comes from the Internet Society, my employer, I am not personally involved in this effort. I am posting it here on CircleID because I believe there is value in publicizing this call for participation as widely as possible so that a large pool of candidates can be found.
