Dear Jean Robert,

Thanks for your willingness to contribute to the global IG process for Civil Society. Unfortunately, the deadline for posting self-nominations was 12 NOON UTC/GMT, not 12 MIDNIGHT, so we were unable to include your postulation in the poll.

Other opportunities for panels and active participation will be arising soon. I hope you will self-nominate for one of these possibilities if it is appropriate for you.

Saludos (greetings, in Spanish),
