The .gt Domain Registry has always maintained a very active participation in the Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) of the ICANN. This is reflected in the new appointment of our collaborator Alejandra Reynoso as Vice-Chair of the ccNSO Council.
The ccNSO Council is currently chaired by Katrina Sataki, representative of Latvia (.lv). It is integrated by 15 councilors who are elected in open voting by representatives from around the world; and 3 councilors selected by the Nominating Committee of ICANN. Since 2015 Reynoso has been a councilor representing the Latin American and Caribbean region.
The ccNSO is an organization that seeks to promote consensus, exchange of information and cooperation for the development of best practices among country code top level domain name managers. To date it has 171 members.
Reynoso is an Engineer in Computer Science, with a Masters in Technology and Computer Science, from UVG. Currently, she is a researcher and developer of technologies of the .gt Domain Registry and professor of the Department of Computer Science of this house of studies.
In the words of Luis Furlán, director of the .gt Domain Registry “this appointment demonstrates the leadership ability of a graduate from UVG. It’s especially relevant being a guatemalan woman in a field dominated by men in the international arena. “

How can someone who is interested in the internet participate in ICANN meetings?
Participating in the activities of ICANN is crucial to keeping up-to-date on world events. It also allows you to get involved in discussions that may lead to the development of policies or development programs related to the Internet.
A good place to start is the ICANN educational platform. Topics addressed range from each one of the organizations and advisory committees that make up the ICANN structure, to security and Internet governance issues.
After reading about ICANN and having an idea of its structure, you can participate by attending one of the three annual meetings organized by ICANN, either in person or remotely.
