All RALOs have been requested to draft outreach and engagement strategies that will serve to guide the allocation of funds from the Community Regional Outreach Pilot Program (CROPP) for outreach and engagement. Each RALO's strategic plan should explain FY16 outreach and engagement goals and planned expectations so that any selected CROPP activities can be coordinated with the appropriate ICANN regional teams.
The ALAC Subcommittee on Outreach and Engagement and the At-Large CROPP Review Team are working with the RALOs on reviewing their strategic plans, since the RALOs are in the best position to identify where outreach and engagement activities should be focused. The workspace page, RALO Outreach Strategies for FY16, has more details.
All RALOs have started to work jointly under the auspices of the At-Large Structure Criteria and Expectations Taskforce to review the existing regulations and requirements for ALS effectiveness. A Cross-RALO Taskforce has been created to consolidate RALOs' existing regulations on this issue. The ALAC Chair drafted a discussion paper on this matter as well. All RALOs have been asked to comment on this paper.
