Community leaders have outlined several key benefits that could be achieved through a programmed approach to global outreach:
- Building local/regional awareness and recruitment of new community members;
- More effectively engaging with current members and/or "reactivating” previously engaged ICANN community members; and
- Communicating ICANN’s mission and objectives to new audiences.
In recognition of the potential that such a regional outreach program could contribute to the ICANN community's continued growth and development, the FY14 Budget allocates resources and Staff has been directed to develop a Community Regional Outreach Pilot Program (FY14) that will include a robust implementation and rigorous evaluation in order to assist in determining whether such resourced outreach merits support in future fiscal cycles.

This space is organized into the following major sections:
