ICANN has published the list of confirmed members of the Coordination Group. The Coordination Group will be responsible for preparing a transitional proposal which takes into account the various needs of all of the IANA's stakeholders. 

The Coordination Group is comprised of individuals nominated by each represented community. These 27 individuals represent 13 communities of both all stakeholders. Adiel Akplogan, CEO of AFRINIC, and Paul Wilson, Managing Director of APNIC, were selected by the Number Resource Organization (NRO) to represent the five RIR communities collectively.
