David Olive, Senior Vice President, Policy Development, extends a warm welcome to everyone attending ICANN62, the third Policy Forum and the first in the Latin American and Caribbean region. ICANN62's intensive program was organized by ICANN's Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees – and features four days of outreach, cross-community, and high interest sessions.

Olive points to what promises to be a highlight of the meeting – the presentation of the 2018 Multistakeholder Ethos Award. This annual award recognizes an ICANN community member whose outstanding service in multiple roles across the community has exemplified the values of collaboration, cooperation, and consensus building.

The presentation of the 2018 Multistakeholder Ethos Award will take place at the welcome session on Monday morning at 08:30 in CC Foyer.
