Expertise and expected time commitment of the members

OISC members are expected not only to participate in but also to drive the Committee’s efforts.  The committee meets monthly through telephone conferences and might decide to meet during the ICANN public meetings. However, most work is done remotely. The working language of the committee is English.

How to joinThe charter of a working group defines the work items, internal decision making and procedures, participation, and duration.  New members need to be appointed by the ccNSO Council.   Interested in joining the OISC? Keep an eye out for calls for volunteers, or contact the ccNSO Secretariat.
