Hi Chris

CENTR does not "speak" for any ccTLD even if they are members of CENTR - 
it is a forum for discussion, information exchange and a facilitator of 
consensus building. We promote ccTLDs making decisions at the local 
level in the interest of their local internet community.
CENTR offered to conduct outreach, contact every ccTLD manager (as the 
IANA database is out of date), and invite them to participate in a  
process to select a representative.  This offer is provided free from 
any charge or requirement to be a member of CENTR as a service to the 
community and this offer is being rejected. That is fine .... it is a 
free world ... but I want it on record.

The LG has not conducted outreach, has not contacted every ccTLD manager 
in ICANN's enlarged Europe (as the IANA database is inaccurate), 
therefore has not invited all European ccTLDs to participate in the 
process of selecting a representative, but the LG is conducting an 
internal selection process.  All I am saying is I am not comfortable 
with that process.

Good luck on your call .... I am sure you will find an acceptable 
solution. ;-)
