Highlights of At-Large/ALAC Sessions in ICANN55

In Marrakech, after spending nearly 10 hours of substantive discussions on the CCWG-Accountability Final Recommendations, the ALAC approved the proposal by consensus. This was the culmination of 1.5 years of efforts from the At-Large Community in contributing to the process of IANA stewardship transition and enhancing the accountability of ICANN.

In addition, the ALAC held work sessions with Regional At-Large Organizations to reassess the criteria for organizations to become At-Large Structures (ALSes) and the expectations of them to maintain the ALS status. This is key to ensure the sustainability and growth of the At-Large Community; it is also very relevant to the current organizational review of At-Large that has a focus on ALSes.

Lastly, the objectives, timeline, and various tasks to support the work of Independent Examiner of At-large Review was another hot topic in ICANN55.
