6. Funding for EURALO General Assembly

There has recently been a lot of discussion among the EURALO Members about the fact that there will be no funding for a General Assembly in Brussels.

  • Should we hold a monthly EURALO meeting or a General Assembly in Brussels?
  • Why is is important for EURALO to have annual General Assemblies?
  • What are the venues to make our opinion on this issue heard within ICANN?
  • Who will be leading on this topic?
  • Next steps

Background Information:

Provision on travel support for At-Large FY09/10:
"The travel support allowance for At-Large for FY09 reflects travel support for 15 ALAC members, 8 representatives of the Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) for the Cairo and Sydney meetings, and a more extensive At-Large attendance (66 in addition to the ALAC council members) at the At-Large Summit held in Mexico City. The travel support for At-Large includes the costs for air travel, lodging, and a per diem amount set for each city. At-Large supported travelers receive air travel support set at economy levels.

Justification: At the inception of the At‐Large organization seven years ago, it was determined to be important to fund travel participation for the entire ALAC to support its “start‐up.” At ICANN’s Paris meeting, the Board adopted a resolution that approved specific travel support funding for a one‐time, At‐Large Summit. This Summit was held in concert with the Mexico City ICANN meeting, with one member from each ALS offered funding to attend the meeting. Also,the Board recognized the key milestone that this Summit represents in the development of the At‐Large organization, and called for future ALAC travel support to be in concert with the level of travel support provided to other of ICANN’s organizations." |
