At-Large's EURALO Holds a Successful General Assembly
At a Glance
The recent EURALO General Assembly in Belgrade was a success. Bylaw revisions were approved, new officers were selected, and topics of vital importance to EURALO were discussed.
Highlights from General Assembly
On 29 May, the European Regional At-Large Organization (EURALO) held a successful General Assembly (GA) in Belgrade, Serbia. In attendance were ICANN Board member Sébastien Bachollet, ALAC Chair Olivier Crépin-Leblond, EURALO Chair Wolf Ludwig, and a dozen additional EURALO members.
A highlight of the day was the approval of a series of important amendments to the EURALO bylaws. The amendments created a new ALS for unaffiliated members, extended the terms of EURALO’s officers and Board members (for up to four more years), and aligned the selection schedule for EURALO board members with that of ALAC members.
A second highlight was the selection of the EURALO Chair, Secretariat, EURALO Board members, and representatives to the ALAC. Wolf Ludwig (of Switzerland) unanimously won a third term as EURALO chair, and Oksana Prykhodko (of the Ukraine) was elected the new Secretariat. In addition, EURALO’s ALAC representatives will remain Olivier Crépin-Leblond, Sandra Hoferichter, and Jean-Jacques Subrenat (selected by the Nominating Committee).
Throughout the day, many issues important to EURALO were debated and discussed. These included EURALO’s FY12 budget (which was approved); the impact hoped for from ICANN’s first At-Large-selected Board Director with voting rights, Sébastien Bachollet (of France); and the urgent need for more outreach and representation in Central and Eastern Europe.
