Under the request of several AFRALO members, I accepted to continue my ALAC membership for one more term.

I think I made a reasonable job during my previous terms as ALAC member that makes me a not too bad candidate for such position.

You can see the result of my work in the capacity building WG that I chair, in the CCWG Accountability where I served as a member of the whole WS 1, and a member of the WS 2 subgroups on Jurisdiction and Human Right, and where I’m now one of the 3 Co-Chairs. In the Finance and budget Sub-Committee, I’m the most regular member and contributor, etc….

I would like to thank the person who nominated me and those that supported the nomination. My first term was a learning experience and I hope that the next term will help me deliver better.

In the past couple of years, I have learnt the value of connecting with our At-Large Structures (ALSes) and will continue to do the same for my next term. Even if participation has improved greatly in the past year, I hope that it improves even more to go beyond monthly calls, to include ICANN policy development.
