The 2010 At-Large Structure (ALS) Survey, which ran from 7 – 24 May 2010, aimed to get to know the ALSes better so the ALAC and At-Large staff can improve their support in order to increase engagement and participation. The survey, available in English, Spanish and French, was divided into three sections:
1) ALS Survey 2010, 2) ccNSO-ALS Survey, and 3) Survey on ICANN’s Geographic Regions.
The information sought includes the current contact information for all ALS representatives and their alternates; to discover what policy areas the ALS Membership is most interested in; and to learn how they prefer to communicate with members of the At-Large community and ICANN At-Large Staff. Additionally, the survey will assist in learning more about the types of At-Large engagement the ALSes are interested in, including the preferred working group format, and whether their Membership is interested in representing the At-Large community at local and regional meetings and contributing to the implementation of the At-Large Improvements project.
Ron Sherwood, ccNSO liaison to the ALAC and Rudi Vansnick, ALAC liaison to the ccNSO, prepared the questions of the ALS-ccTLD survey. The survey is expected to help to identify the relationship between ccTLDs and ALSes, in part by identifying which ALSes are presently involved in local ccTLD activities.
The purpose of the third section, the community survey from the Review of ICANN Geographic Regions cross-community work group, is to assess the current applications and impacts of ICANN's Geographic Regions framework.
