You are a member of whichever community fits you best, as a matter of 
fact based on who you are, not because you have either 'decided to 
join', or have been 'accepted' as a 'member'.

>and how do we get invited?

Each of the communities have either completed, or near to have 
completed, their selection process for a very small number of 
appointees, based most often on their record of participation in the 
Internet Governance landscape for many years.

It's therefore too late for this meeting (on several levels), and until 
that meeting has finished [or even later, perhaps] we won't know how 
many people will required to be selected in future, or when.

In the short term I suggest you add your voice to those who hope the 
proceedings will be available for remote-participating observers.
