LACRALO Report Nairobi

In December, created a LACRALO Dashboard using Google Spreadsheets for ALSes in LACRALO to

  • plan for and keep track of LACRALO and ICANN activities (public policies, briefing sessions)
  • track countries in the region where ALSes are present and absent, countries whose ccTLD are in the ccNSO, and combinations thereof.

The dashboard is proving useful to plan for future outreach activities in the region.

To better prepare prospective ALSes to understand At-Large and LACRALO, aLACRALO Brochurehas been developed and a final version available in English, Spanish and Portuguese after three draft versions produced.

Work is continuing on a welcome Starter Pack of documents to be provided to new or prospective ALSes joining LACRALO.

Regional review should be completed shortly on an ALS application from El Salvador.

Comments on the ICANN 2010-2013 Strategic Plan were submitted and extensive discussion on the At-Large Board Selection Process during one of our monthly teleconferences. Candidates from the region have volunteered to serve on the various teams in this process.
