FY19 Outreach Strategy

Outreach Goals:

NPOC, is the constituency responsible of educating and engaging not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations to participate in ICANN’s policy making processes, how ICANN operates, and how policies can affect how they deliver their mission related services. Specific operational concerns include the ability to register and maintain domain names, protect against fraud and abuse, and to ensure security and privacy whilst using the Domain Name System (DNS) to serve members and communities.

Many not-for-profits are unaware of the risk that they face in the domain names system and the lack of protection under the existing Registrar Accredited Agreement. NPOC’s role is to provide the information on how not for profits can become involved by learning about the ICANN ecosystem and NPOC to be able to contribute their knowledge and participate in the policy development process.

NPOC, in its representation as the voice of this Constituency will encourage new and existing members to become a valued participant in the ICANN ecosystem to build a strong voice together.

The Not for Profit Operational Concerns Constituency and its members have identify the following goals and strategies to increase members' engagement.

Outreach Goals:
