2019  election timeline

Dear NPOC Members,

I am following up on the email sent by the NCSG Chair. As the email states, due to the new ICANN travel deadline requiring120 days to process travel plans. The best possible option that evolved is to align the election dates making it easier for the election processes, including the Stakeholder Group and Constituencies, elected positions.
Many thanks to members who joined the call to hear the candidates this morning.  I am happy that there are three contested positions, (how great is that for NPOC).  
For those of you who were unable to attend, please find the link for the audio below to hear what the candidates have to say.
