At-Large In Full Force at Internet Governance Forum

Demonstrating the power of the multistakeholder model to rally individual Internet users, nearly 30 members of ICANN's At-Large Community are participating in the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Baku, Azerbaijan from 6-9 November 2012.

The African Regional At-Large Organization (AFRALO) and the Asia, Australasia and Pacific Islands Regional At-Large Organization (APRALO) worked with ICANN to put together sessions examining aspects of ICANN's New gTLD Program.

At-Large Advisory Committee Chair Dr. Olivier Crépin-Leblond said, "Through their active participation in the IGF in the organization of workshops and other activities, the members of the ICANN At-Large community will be working to ensure that the voice of the end-user within ICANN is heard in this important venue. This will help to show the successful multistakeholder model within ICANN."

In addition to organizing and participating in sessions, At-Large members will also join ICANN staff at its informational booth in the IGF Village. They will provide information on ICANN-sponsored events as well as on the new MyICANN web portal.

At-Large has created a wiki workspace devoted to its planned activities at the seventh annual IGF. It can be found at
