At-Large Achievements at the 48th ICANN Meeting in Buenos Aires

The At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) and the members of the At-Large community achieved many policy and process-related goals during the ICANN 48 Meeting that took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina 17-22 November 2013. These included ratifying three policy advice statements and establishing the At-Large Registration Issues Working Group. As it was the ICANN Annual General Meeting, At-Large said goodbye to several ALAC and Regional Leaders and welcomed new leaders.

Among the many policy and process-related issues discussed during their meetings, there are several the ALAC would like to highlight as being of particular note:


  • The ALAC held 21 formal meetings.
  • Numerous additional informal working meetings were held including an informal joint meeting of the Board Candidate Evaluation Committee and the Board Member Selection Process Committee and Finance and Budget Sub-Committee Meeting to discuss the next steps for the ALAC regarding the Community Regional Outreach Pilot Program (CROPP). There were also transition meetings with AFRALO and NARALO regional leaders, an informal APRALO meeting with Kuek to discuss the APRALO Showcase on Singapore, and informal discussions with LACRALO leadership.
