This new Workspace is the hub for all updates, documents, and work related to At-Large Improvements Work Team B.


The goal of the ALAC/At-Large Improvements project is to review and improve both ALAC/At-Large’s participation in ICANN and the ALSes’ participation in At-Large. This will be done through the implementation of the 13 recommendations outlined in the At-Large Review Work Group's Final Report and detailed in the Simplified At-Large Improvements Implementation Outline.

We have divided these recommendations among four work teams. Work Team B -- the work team on ALS participation -- is assigned the implementation of the following four recommendations:

Rec 3: Remove any obstacles in ALS-RALO-ALAC structure
Rec 4: ALS education and engagement
Rec 7: ALAC should choose its own communication/collaboration tools
Rec 9: ICANN should strengthen its translation/interpretation tools


The members of Work Team B, organized by regional affiliation, are:
