The At-Large Outreach and Engagement SC submitted a ICANN FY18 budget request for At-Large Outreach to be funded at IGF 2017. This was approved by ALAC and submitted to ICANN. ICANN

approved this request, saying

"Two travelers approved (one Outreach Sub-Committee member and one ALAC Member) for travel support to the IGF 2017 Meeting. Granting of support is contingent on: (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 the meeting that addresses each itemized metric as per request. The report is to be submitted to and is a condition of future resource allocations. Approved travel includes assumption of economy airfare + four travel days and three hotel nights + per diems appropriate to region traveled."

The ALAC Outreach and Engagement SC via Glenn McKnight requested a booth in May 2017 a At-Large at the IGF 2017 from the IGF MAG. This was approved in August 2017. See the booths at IGF 2017 page.
