Support Participation of Individual Users in EURALOEURALOSee ABR Request

meeting support via Zoom to the ICANN community.

Management of the web site. (N/A)

  • the web site needs fixes every now and then - up to now I have done it, but one problem has arisen on the membership application form that I do not have the competences for solving

Membership application procedure (under review)

  • due to the application form problem - see above - the current procedure is to send an email to the official EURALO Individual Users address and the application is processed manually - the recommendation of the UIM-WP is that this part of the process in managed by Staff, who receive the application and pass it to the EURALO Individual Users Board - if this implementation is agreed, there is no need to fix the application form problem, while the addition of the approved applicant will continue to be made manually, as is now. 


Upgrade of the web site (N/A)

  • the web site needs several changes - we need to keep the documents of the Association - e.g. Bylaws, etc. - accessible and up-to-date, some pages are outdated, some links to the ALAC pages must be reviewed, etc. - this needs to be done as a small project, with definition of the needs, definition of the objectives, project plan, execution, assessment of the result - while the overall project management should be done by volunteer individual members, the implementation needs an expert in web programming that can be hired using the additional budget


Creation of a roster of competences (under review)

  • several attempts have been made to create a roster of competences for ALS members and for Individuals, but the current solution does not seem to work very effectively - we could approach this issue as a proper project, defining the objectives, the needs, the success criteria - as for the web site, the overall management of the project should be carried on by volunteers, but there might be the need for additional resources that require funding


Outreach (COMPLETED)

  • it is important to have the opportunity to participate to events where potential new individual members could be approached - this includes, for instance, local, regional and global IGF
  • we should produce a leaflet or other material in support of outreach activities - while the paper leaflet seems to be still the most popular form we should consider other media that could be accessed remotely, like web pages, short videoclips, and more - presence on social media to advertise the EURALO Individual Users Association is also very important


Welcome package (Yes, within parameters of Community Communication Support)

  • we need to have a standard set of information to be provided to new members to bring them up to speed - this should include information on the organization of the different web sites, including the Confluence pages as well as information on all the training possibilities

Fixed expenditures for the web site (N/A)

  • as of today the EURALO Individual Users Association web site is owned by a volunteer - this includes ownership of the domain name(s) and the web site content - this implies also some financial commitment, although the most important issue is not the financial contribution but the ownership, because the web site should be part of the EURALO assets and not be left in the hands of an individual
  • name registration - individualusers.org [individualusers.org] and individualusers.eu [individualusers.eu] - yearly fees, currently paid by Roberto
  • WordPress subscription for the management of the web site - yearly fee.
LAC Digital Forum: Civil Society and GovernmentLACRALOSee ABR Request

This is a recommendation for partial support. No travel support is approved for this request. ICANN org agrees with LACRALO that it is
important to provide the Latin American and Caribbean regional community a space for dialogue to explore “recent challenges facing the Internet ecosystem”.

ICANN org encourages LACRALO to work with the Policy Development Support function to develop a three-day virtual workshop; the workshop may be designed primarily for LACRALO At-Large Structures but should be open to the broader At-Large and ICANN communities.

Working with the Language Services team, the workshop may include remote simultaneous interpretation in English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish. LACRALO is required to submit a report to abr-reports@icann.org by 30 June 2022

RECOMMENDED AMOUNT (ESTIMATED): 20,000 USD


Responsible Staff:

Heidi Ullrich and Christina Rodriguez

At-Large Lead: 

Augusto Ho, Harold Arcos and Claire Craig. 

At-Large staff have reached out to LACRALO's new leadership. Also, At-Large staff have been in touch with GAC support staff and GSE staff to start planning.
