FY18 Additional Budget Request Details
For FY18, the ALAC again requests that each of the five At-large Regional At-Large Organizations (RALO’s) are given access up to $2,000 each for targeted local discretionary funds to permit the local travel, luncheons, displays, graphic and promotional Facebook/Twitter graphics.
Opportunities exist for At-Large members to do local outreach and engagement about ICANN and ICANN policy related issues. The local activities can include local presentations, brown bag lunch topics, local business persons presentations i.e., Kiwana’s, Rotary, Professional Women’s University Groups, Chamber of Commerce and more. These local groups at the grassroots are looking for professional speakers on a weekly basis and rely on local experts on various topics. They open up opportunities for speaking engagements at minimum cost.
While the FY17 Additional Budget Request on this issue was not approved, there was $10,000 in GSE funding made available. The ALAC is appreciative of this.
Well into FY17, a template was prepared and requests from the RALOs are now being submitted.
(Yes - Core)
After FY17 experience with community and regional Global Stakeholder Engagement (GSE) teams, this pilot program will continue for an additional fiscal year administered by the Policy Development Support Team in collaboration with regional stakeholder engagement VPs. The FY17 experience incorporated the development of a request form template, which should continue to be used in FY18. Approval of this request is contingent on ICANN Org development of a transparent assessment and reporting framework.
This Budget allocation consist of a total of $10,000 to assist RALOs in their continuing work with individual/local community requests.
