Dear Patricio, ccTLD Adcom and Secretariat,
at it's 17 General Assembly in Frankfurt, 27-28 February 2003, CENTR members have appointed Elisabeth Porteneuve to serve as an additional Adcom Member for the European Region. The group also recognised the work of Nigel Roberts and wished him to continue in this function for the time being.
Elisabeth is well known in the community, especially for her dedication and commitment towards the ccTLD community world wide and has a intense knowledge in the ICANN arena. CENTR thanks her for her active and focused participation in the various constituencies.
At it's meeting in Frankfurt, some CENTR members have also expressed concern on the formal status of the Adcom and would like to forward some input on this issue in the near future.
