The EURALO Event Prague 44 (Slides with ALAC milestones) was shown:
Wolf suggested to create a small team, to create a RETRO debate.
Introduction about At-Large History. Which is not known among the RALO community. Wolfgang Kleinwachter can provide an introduction.
Suggestion was to include Annette to be part of the panel.
We should not look backwards but we should also have a discussion on the future. We will have a good basis for debate in Prague. Future perspective is important.
Information section. Not to call it a panel, rather an informal format is preferred. How we became what we are. Then shifting, visualizing an ALAC mission. We should not focus too much in history, but what we can learn in our history. OCL as EURALO member would have a role, to give his perspective as ALAC Chair.
Wolf: Other details will be discussed. An organizing group needs to be formed, to find sponsors, to get funding support from ICANN. Currently we have 2-1/2 hour schedule. the last 1/2 would be a cocktail. We have worked with OCL and communications team to obtain lapel pins and lanyards celebrating the 5 year RALO and 10 years RALO anniversary events.
OCL Previous ALAC Chairs will be present in Prague, and they could be invited. All the 5 Regions will be present. We could have all the regions in the panel.
AI: To create a Working Group to organize the details. Not too many speakers in a panel.
Wolf mentioned 1 1/2 hour or 1 h 45 minutes would be best.
Details need to be discussed. We need to create a group.
Heidi: We need to have the time and date (by May 3) to request meeting staff to allocate the room and time.
The MOST IMPORTANT AI: Participants need to form a Working Group.
A consolidated context needs to be compiled in the next few weeks.
Staff to create A WIKI page for the development of the Prague Anniversary events.
