1.  Introduction

   The "IANA IPR Community Agreement" [1] was one of the many documents
   that was part of the IANA Stewardship Transition.  It calls for the
   creation of the Community Coordination Group (CCG) to provide
   guidance and advice to the IETF Trust regarding the stewardship of
   the IANA Intellectual Property, which is the IANA trademarks and the
   IANA domain names.

   The CCG is comprised of nine individuals, called the CCG
   Representatives.  The three operational communities (i.e., the Names
   Community, the Numbers Community, and the Protocol Parameters
   Community) each appoint three CCG Representatives.  Each operational
   community has the right to change any of its CCG Representatives upon
   written notice to the other operational communities and the IETF
   Trust.  An operational community may remove or replace its CCG
   Representatives at any time and at its sole discretion.  The means
   and procedures by which an operational community chooses to select,
   appoint, and remove its own CCG Representatives are determined solely
   by that operational community.

   Each operational community appoints one of its CCG Representatives as
   a co-chair of the CCG, and that co-chair is empowered to speak on
   behalf of its operational community regarding the IANA Intellectual
   Property.  An operational community has the right to change its CCG
   co-chair upon written notice to the other operational communities and
   the IETF Trust.  An operational community may remove or replace its
   CCG co-chair at any time and at its sole discretion.
