Once nominated, the nominee is responsible for public acceptance of the

   - Any conflicts of interest;
   - Reasons for willingness to take on the tasks of the particular

following regions: Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe.

**  These terms all commence on 20 October 2012 (at the conclusion of the
2012 Annual ICANN Meeting).
**  You all should have received an email notice from me requesting that
you "check-in" and verify your email address and that you are an active
member of the SG.  Only active members may vote in the NCSG annual
election, so be sure to check your email folders and find that email notice
from me and respond before 20 August 2012, to avoid being placed on the
inactive list.  If you haven't received the check-in notice yet and you've
checked all your email folders and spam folders, and still can't find the
check-in request, please shoot me a note off-list and we'll sort it out
right away.

**  The nominations, their acceptance and candidacy statements will all be
posted to the 2012 elections wiki page:

If you have any questions on any of this, please do not hesitate to ask me.
 Thank you!

All best,
Robin Gross
