At-Large has recently begun a series of RALO-specific Orientation Calls calls and resources for new At-Large Structures (ALS) and Individual Members.
APRALO was the first RALO to host the 90-minute Orientation Call on 19 June 2017. The ALAC Chair, APRALO Leadership Team (LT) and At-Large Staff introduced new APRALO ALS and Individual Members since January 2016, while opening the call to the entire APRALO community. The call served to engage the APRALO community, familiarizing them with At-Large issues while providing a conduit to APRALO Leadership, the ALAC Chair and At-Large Staff. The Orientation Call included a powerpoint presentation addressing Adobe Connect (AC) Room logistics and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). An APRALO Newcomer Skype Chat was created following the call to provide an open forum for questions and encourage Newcomer participation in upcoming events, including the APRALO General Assembly and Showcase being organized for ICANN60 Abu Dhabi.
NARALO is scheduled to be the second RALO to host an Orientation Call during the first week of September. Due to the close proximity of ICANN60 Annual General Meeting (AGM), newly elected NARALO Leadership and ALAC members will be invited to introduce themselves on the call in addition to current NARALO Leadership, current and incoming NARALO NomCom Delegate(s), the ALAC Chair and At-Large Staff. As NARALO has the highest number of Individual Members of any RALO, the content of the Orientation presentation may be adjusted accordingly.
- TBD Sept 2017
