Join the CCWG-Accountability

There are two ways to volunteer:

  • Individual Participants – anyone interested can volunteer to join the CCWG as a "participant", regardless of whether they are members of the ICANN community. Participants are expected to actively contribute to mailing list conversations as well as meetings. It is anticipated that participants will provide essential input to the process. They will participate similarly to ICANNchartering organization-appointed members and will be required to provide a Statement of Interest (SOI).
  • Mailing list observers – for those who are merely interested to monitor the CCWG conversations, there is the possibility to sign up as a mailing list "observer" which offers read-only access to the mailing list. Mailing list observers will not be permitted to post, will not receive invitations to the various meetings or calls of the CCWG (note that audio streaming will be provided for those interested to follow the CCWG meetings) and will not have to complete a statement of interest (see below). At any point in time, a mailing list observer can join the CCWG as a participant simply by informing ICANN staff.

In addition, there will be opportunities to provide input through public consultations and public comment processes that the CCWG is expected to organize.

If you are interested in joining the CCWG as an individual participant or mailing list observer, please contact Grace Abuhamad (
