ISSUE #18 - December 2016

 

 End of Year 2016
Message from Our Chair 



We like to take this opportunity to provide our  NARALO membership a end of year message on behalf of  Judith and myself.

Our  election process was open and transparent and for a second year  myself as chair and Judith as secretariat return to our positions.  We also saw Eduardo as NOMCOM rep and  Garth as ALAC for the second year.  Lastly.  Louis and Alan election resulted in soldifying Alan's position and he has the two year mandate to complete his work as the ALAC Chair. 

It has been  an exciting year of  ICANN and NARALO as  we saw the historical  transition from NTIA  to a oindependent ICANN.  Many of our  membership watched and participated with the process over the many months leading to the culmination in October 2016.  

Special acknowledgement to Alan Greenberg our  representative for the Unaffiliated and the  current  ALAC Chair in working delegating in multiple committees  including the work on the  ALS metrics and Criteria. His  non stop work for  ALAC and ATLARGE is leaving a indelible mark on our wider community 

NARALO  has  been  working on updating  a number of things,   Rules Of Procedures, NARALO brochure, NARALO slogan  and the forthcoming  General Assembly in April 2017 in New Orleans. 

A key operational  effort with  John More as pen-holder has started on revamping our Rules of Procedure to inline with the other  RALO's and  making many of our  processes and procedures clear and definiative 

The  second phase of the  successful  captioning pilot is going into the second year, spearheaded by Judith Hellerstein. 

We also saw funding support for  Valerie Fast Horse and April Tinhorn who participated with the  ICANN Hyderabad and the fellowship programme which was a pilot  Tribal Ambassador program  targetted to the First Nations(Native )  Americans and Canadians

Many of members  provided critical feedback to revamp the fellowship program and we have seen changes that for the first  time will include our communities eligible to apply for the fellowship program. This is the first time in ten years we will see this happen.  Kudos to all that campaigned the cause of making the project more inclusive.

Looking back we also implemented the mid term report in Helsinki and the year in review in  Hyderabad  providing a  report on the progress of our  RALO.

In closing,   we wish you all a  successul 2017 and we look forward to seeing you in New Orleans 

Glenn McKnight

Official order  released:  "The Court DENIES The Application for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief, for the reasons stated on the record."

The IANA transition is set to go!
