Executive Director of LACNIC and Adiel Akplogan, CEO of AfriNIC, to 
serve on a 46-member Advisory Group. This Advisory Group will assist the

comprised of representatives from governments, the private sector and 
civil society. The Group will prepare the agenda and programme for the 
first meeting of the Internet Governance Forum, which is to be held in 
Athens from 30 October to 2 November, 2006.

The selection of two members of the Number Resource Organization (NRO)
