Regional Activities

Global Presence

At-Large Structures (ALSes) and individual members form the basis of our community representing the interests of internet users worldwide. The five Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) unite our members based on their regions.

Working Groups

Many At-Large working groups are dedicated to ICANN policy discussions and advice development activities. Many others tackle various aspects of organization building, such as advancing accessiblity and inclusion at ICANN, testing communication and collaboration tools, planning outreach and engagement projects, developing capacity building programs for newcomers, and fulfilling operational needs of the Community. Almost all of our working groups are open to everyone regardless of membership status in At-Large.
