Comments Requested on Draft At-Large Review Implementation Plan Outline
The At-Large community is requested to review the At-Large Review Implementation Outline. Comments are being taken until 30th September 2009 at https://st.icann.org/alac-docs/index.cgi?at_large_review_implementation_outline_al_alac_st_0909_1.
At the public board meeting on 26th June 2009 (see http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-26jun09.htm (english only)), the Board of ICANN approved all but one recommendation of the At-Large Review Working Group in its Final Report of 6 th June 2009 (see http://www.icann.org/en/reviews/alac/final-report-alac-review-28jan09-en.pdf [PDF, 308K]).
The ALAC requested that the Staff create a draft At-Large Review Implementation Plan Outline containing all the recommendations and sub-recommendations in the Final Report for the entire At-Large community to review and comment upon. The draft under consultation is that document.
Once the consultation is over, the results are to be incorporated into a final Outline plan which the ALAC will vote upon; once ratified the plan will then be transmitted to the Board for review at the Seoul meeting.
Why Is This Important?
The recommendations in the At-Large Review Final Report will have important transformative impacts upon the At-Large community and its interactions with other parts of ICANN. This outline plan is At-Large’s chance to influence these transformations at a high level, and in particular to indicate what priority the various recommendations should have with respect to one another.
