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


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 D -- the work team on ALAC's policy advice development -- is assigned the implementation of the following three recommendations:

Rec 8: ALAC may request public comment period be extended to 45 days
Rec 12: Consumer representatives should have input into decisions and policy advice
Rec 13: ALAC/At-Large policy advice mechanisms should be strengthened


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

Jean-Jacques Subrenat



Rudi Vansnick
