  1. Dear all ,

    In perspectives of National Forum on Internet Governance in the DRC in October 2016, we plan organized a day called "ICANN DAY." These event provide an opportunity for  Congolese players to know ICANN works, its structures and its components. An opportunity also to bring ICANN near  public of Congo and at  same time allow  Congolese players to join  various components of ICANN.
    I need your approval to this proposal in order to allow us to introduce our request to CROPP program.
