At-Large Community Onboarding

The Community Onboarding Pilot Program is a collaboration between ICANN and the ICANN Community to effectively integrate new Community members into their volunteer roles. The program aims to create a structured, year-round (not Meetings-focused) Onboarding process taiored to each Community group. The program consists of three pillars:
  1. Welcome: Timely welcome of new Community member

  2. Onboarding: Structured courses, materials and tools for individuals to learn about their Community and how to participate

  3. Mentoring: Individualized peer-mentorship for selected members

Members of the SC on O&E are building out this structured Onboarding process for At-Large. See At-Large Community Onboarding for presentations and work developed to date.

Beran Dondeh Gillen, Isaac Maposa and Dev Anand Teelucksingh have been working on the Community Onboarding Project. See At-Large Community Onboarding for presentations and work developed to date.

Between ICANN58 and ICANN59, the work developed has been shared on RALO Leadership Calls, RALO Monthly Calls and ALAC Monthly Calls.

Note: The program builds upon an O&E presentation introducing At-Large to NextGen.

Possible FY18 budget requests, coordinated outreach for IGF 2017: Proposal submitted and approved. See:

Glenn McKnight

Despite substantial At-Large presence at IGF 2016 Mexico and a significant opportunity for outreach, there was a lack of awareness and promotion of At-Large.

The O&E proposal for the IGF 2017 panel session was not selected by IGF MAG, but an APRALO proposal was approved. Therefore the budget request for Outreach is still active (two travelers approved; one Outreach Subcommittee member and one ALAC member) for travel support to the IGF 2017 Meeting. Support is contingent upon:

(1) MAG approval of at least one At-Large RALO workshop; and

(2) Submission of a detailed report from each traveler within 30 days of related meeting, addressing each request as per itemized metric. The report is to be submitted to sbr-outcomes@icann.org and is a conditional upon future resource allocation. Approved travel includes economy airfare, four travel days and three hotel nights, plus per diems adjusted to regional standard of living.




Actively seek Outreach events to add to the At-Large Outreach Calendars. 

Evaluate past Outreach efforts to determine how successful they were.

  1. As followup to the email dated  March 10th regarding the switch in the name to ALAC Subcommittee on Outreach and Engagement

    As it stated in the email two things  were address  

    1. Reconstitute its membership
    2. Creation of a new mission 

    It's important to get the feedback from actual  participants in the CROPP funding short  trips to targeted events.   In lieu of this new focus.  Evan and I attended the first NARALO  CROPP trips at NTEN ( Non Profit  Technology Conference in Austin) which included two  ICANN staffers.   The  strong  onus was engaging the media and the various attendees  including PIR ( owners of .ORG and .NGO),  on the scope and purpose of  NARALO, ALAC  and ICANN ( not always in this order)

    The  work last year was targetted to recruitment of new  ALS's  especially in underrepresented areas in North American and American territories.    This year was very different and the future funded attendees  for CROPP  need to grasp the different approach  ie.  seminars, BOF,  interviews,  attending parties,  vendor  booth discussions.   This year  made it very easy to discuss the Net Neutrality issues, privacy and other issues since the general population is becoming more aware. 

    The  new metrics for these type of  engagement needs to be revisited and discussed
