11) Additional information (optional):

I developed and fought to have captioning available for working group and other At Large Meeting and had submitted a special budget request to the ICANN Board and received funding for 2015. Phase 2 of the pilot to expand it to cover additional languages was accepted for FY'17 and Phase 3 was submitted for FY'18 with the hope that after this phase it will transfer to the core and all sessions will be captioned.

In FY'18 the captioning pilot will enter the ICANN Core Budget and so no need to keep submitting a special budget request

I have attended each of the ICANN meetings for the past four years, either in person or virtually and I have provided detailed reports and attended all mandatory meetings and participated in various ALAC and NARALO meetings. I have also completed the daily reports and summaries for all the meetings I attended. Additionally, I have worked with Glenn McKnight to create a new template for the monthly reports.
