At-Large in Singapore
At a glance
The ALAC has planned a number of cross-community activities for ICANN’s Singapore Meeting – in particular, a multi-stakeholder meeting with the JAS WG and the ALAC’s meeting with the GNSO’s Business Constituency.
Multi-stakeholder meeting with the JAS WG
Like all ICANN communities, At-Large is now in full Singapore swing. On its schedule for ICANN’s 41st Meeting are a number of notable cross-community activities.
A highlight of this work will surely be the multi-stakeholder meeting the ALAC has organized for members of the Board, the GAC, the GNSO, and, of course, At-Large with the SO/AC New gTLD Joint Applicant Support Work Group (JAS WG). The goal is to discuss both the JAS WG’s recently completed Second Milestone Report and its overall direction. A preliminary call among the participants is scheduled for the week of 13 June.
This multi-stakeholder JAS WG meeting arose from a suggestion by Board member Katim S. Touray, made to the chairs of the WG’s chartering organizations, the ALAC and GNSO. The idea had initially been presented at the recent Board retreat in Istanbul.
Other cross-community plans
The ALAC will also meet with the GAC in Singapore, as it did during ICANN’s Silicon Valley Meeting. In addition, the ALAC has planned its first-ever meeting with the GNSO Business Constituency.
The ALAC sees such cross-community collaboration as an effective way of working for the interests of Internet end users and influencing ICANN policy development early in the process.
An At-Large Showcase
Another highlight on the At-Large schedule in Singapore will surely be the At-Large Structure (ALS) Showcase hosted by the Asian, Australasian and Pacific Islands Regional At-Large Organization (APRALO). The Showcase will feature presentations by various APRALO ALSes, as well as a keynote speech by Professor Peng Hwa Ang, Director of the Singapore Internet Research Centre.
