[The webinar organized by the Internet Society has been rescheduled for 4 March 2015. Please find additional updated information below. Sincerely, -Greg] 

Since the 14 March 2014 announcement by the U.S. National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA) regarding the transition from the US Government to the global multistakeholder community, the Internet community has been working hard to produce by 30 September 2015 a proposal to transition the stewardship role over IANA functions currently played by the NTIA.

Key participants in the process to develop a proposal for transitioning to the global multistakeholder community stewardship of the IANA functions for Internet domain names, numbers, and protocol parameters will provide an update on the process and progress so far during a webinar open to everyone.

NEW DATE/TIME: Wednesday, 4 March 2015, at 14:00 UTC

	• Patrik Fältström, Vice Chair, IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group

	• Demi Getschko and Narelle Clark, Internet Society appointees to IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group

	• Eliot Lear, Member, Internet Architecture Board and author of the Internet Engineering Task Force IANAPLAN document 

	• Nurani Nimpuno, Member, Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal Team

	• Matthew Shears, Participant, ICANN Cross Community Working Group

	• Theresa Swinehart, Sr. Advisor to the President on Strategy, ICANN

This webinar is intended to provide an update for those who may not have been previously engaged in or following this process, and will be moderated by Internet Society Policy Advisor Konstantinos Komaitis.
