The large number of potential NARALO ALS will be attending. Special attention will be to organizations dealing with the disabled and Native American/Canadian organizations.

Goals of Trip:

The ICANN regional engagement strategy is to reach to the under represented communities. The national conference will have regions of the US that are underserved ie. Maine, Montana and elsewhere where civic engagement is important
given their high bandwidth cost and low speeds.  My participation will impact these members by asking them to get involved with the ICANN Ecosystem.
