Post-ICANN57 Report of the At-Large Community
What Happened at ICANN57?
The ALAC approved the Charter of the Cross Community Working Group (CCWG) on Auction Proceeds and would name a Co-Chair of the group. The ALAC has also decided to continue being a Chartering Organization of CCWG on Internet Governance.
Endorsed by the ALAC, the Second At-Large Summit (ATLAS II) Recommendations Implementation Report was transmitted to the ICANN Board. It marks a conclusion of the two-year endeavor implementing the 43 Recommendations stated in the ATLAS II Declaration.
ITEMS, the independent examiner of the At-Large Review, shared with the Community their preliminary findings about the mission, purposes, and the structural effectiveness of the Community. A community-initiated analysis paper on the At-Large Community structure was also published.
In terms of outreach, the Asian, Australian, and Pacific Islands (APRALO) held successful Capacity Building Sessions for its At-Large Structure (ALS) members, as well as a joint Showcase and Networking event. In addition, At-Large had a lively discussion with the NextGen students about policy activities in the Community.
At-Large activities in ICANN57 ended with successful RALO and ALAC Development sessions on the last day.
In early December 2016, the Draft Report of the Independent Review of the At-Large Community is scheduled to be published for the consideration by the At-Large Review Working Party. As a complementary effort to the At-Large Review, the ALAC will further analyze the effectiveness of ALSes on the basis of the ALAC-RALO-ALS Structure Analysis paper.
In the regions, the Latin American and Caribbean Islands Regional At-Large Organization (LACRALO), the North American Regional At-Large Organization (NARALO), and the African Regional At-Large Organization (AFRALO) will be busy planning their General Assemblies, which will take place in January 2017, April 2017, and November 2017 respectively.
