What is the history of the ALAC?

The ALAC was created in 2002 to provide a way for active individual users of the Internet from around the world to participate in ICANN. Its structure was studied through the At-Large Advisory Committee Assistance Group, which made a proposal that was then approved by the ICANN Board.

In March 2003 the ICANN Board appointed fifteen members to form the Interim ALAC, with a plan to transition to an ALAC comprised of members selected from five geographically-based Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) and the Nominating Committee.

In June 2007, the last Interim ALAC member was replaced by elected representatives and the Interim ALAC became the full ALAC.
