At-Large Orientation Program Relaunches for New At-Large Structures and Individual Members of the At-Large Community

At a Glance

With a significant increase in the number of accredited At-Large Structures (ALS) and Individual Members joining the At-Large community since January 2016, an At-Large Orientation Program was relaunched in June 2017. The aim of this program is to facilitate ALS and Individual Member participation within their Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) and to promote their policy development activity within At-Large and ICANN. The program is managed by At-Large Staff, including RALO Leadership Teams from each RALO during implementation.

Recent Developments

Previously, At-Large ALS Orientation activities were presented to At-Large during ICANN53 and received strong support from the At-Large community. During ICANN58, At-Large Staff reintroduced the concept of the At-Large Orientation Program to At-Large community members. The initiative has been well received in the context of the now finalized At-Large Review, which emphasized the need for greater outreach and engagement within At-Large.


The relaunched Orientation is the perfect opportunity to for new ALS and Individual Members to introduce themselves and take a more formalized first step into At-Large activities. The Orientation is RALO-customized and will be scheduled for the remaining 3 Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) during FY18.

One of the main focuses of the Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) is, and always has been, outreach. RALO leaders and staff work hard together to ensure that organizations or associations across the world with similar goals to those of the ICANN community know about At-Large and are motivated to be part of it. In order to manage this, they need to gain the At-Large Structure (ALS) or Individual Member status and be supported during the engagement phase of their At-Large activities.
