NPOC Colleagues,

In the next five years there will be a number of challenges for not-for-profit and civil society organizations as they review their positions online with regard to what they do and how they do it, with regard to their obligations to the members and their clients, and with regard to how they handle fund raising, revenues, and expenditures. Everything from existing social media, mobile payments, FaceBook's internet.org initiative and beyond will be raising questions for how you do what you do, and engage you in policy dialogue at the local level and above.

The NextGen program is your opportunity to nurture young talent in these areas, for your organizational benefit, and for the benefit of your community and your country. I would ask each of you to take a strong role identifying suitable candidates for the program and mentoring them through the application process. I see that as a capacity building effort in the policy area, as well as important career opportunities for young people. Please feel free to call on me if you have questions or need help in this area. I have no role in candidate selection, but I can advise on strategy and see this as one part of building a group of young not-for-profit/civil society persons with the skills and knowledge to carry this sector forward. Look around and identify suitable candidates.

Sam Lanfranco, Chair, NP)C Policy Committee

  Applications are now open for NextGen@ICANN

The NextGen@ICANN program has seen incredibly positive feedback and the number of applications to the program grew exponentially over the past year.

As part of the Development and Public Responsibility Department's (DPRD) ongoing work to support the next generation of Internet users, the NextGen@ICANN program has been formalized as a staple DPRD initiative to engage regionally based undergraduate and graduate students at ICANN meetings, and introduce them to ICANN through guided programming. The NextGen@ICANN program was initially organized at ICANN 49 in Singapore with DotAsia and NetMission, and has been successfully replicated at both ICANN 50 in London and ICANN 51 in Los Angeles by our Department.

We are pleased to announce that applications for the NextGen@ICANN program at Buenos Aires ICANN 53 <http://buenosaires53.icann.org/en/> are now open. Click here to apply to the program. <http://bit.ly/1vzvGPv>

The program will take place at ICANN 53, as well as at subsequent ICANN Meetings. You are encouraged to apply or share with your friends and colleagues if you think they might be interested in becoming more involved with the ICANN community through the NextGen@ICANN program.

More information is available on the NextGen@ICANN application page <http://bit.ly/1vzvGPv>. Feel free to contact dprd@xxxxxxxxx <mailto:dprd@xxxxxxxxx> with any questions you may have.
