Expression of Interest
This is to express my interest and availability in serving on the Board of EURALO, 2017-19.
As a former civil servant, including 10 consecutive years as an Ambassador, I am attentive to the public interest. My more recent experience as a volunteer includes serving on international Boards, notably in ICANN. On the ICANN Board (2007-10), I was the initiator and inaugural Chair of the Public Participation Committee, and chaired the ccNSO Review. When a member of the ALAC (2010-14), I set up and co- chaired its Future Challenges Working Group. As a member of the ICG (2014-16), I took an active part in the Transition of oversight of the IANA Functions, arguably a milestone in ICANN's recent history. As co-founder and inaugural Chair (2015-17) of the EURALO Individuals' Association, I am familiar with and attentive to the needs of the global Internet user.
If elected to the EURALO Board, I would help enhance its overall relevance, for instance by improving its communication methods and tools.

This call is made in accordance with the EURALO Articles of Association and Selection and performance criteria for EURALO Board members 2015. In addition, it should be mentioned that a recent discussion on the EURALO mailing list as well as the EURALO monthly call of 21 November 2017, made it quite clear that there was a need to for Board members as a whole to share responsibilities with the EURALO Chair and Secretariat in assuming the following topics:
1. Legal issues
2. Policy Development
3. Communication including leading the work on the EURALO website/WIKI/Facebook page.
4. Outreach with communities outside ICANN
