  • Finance and Budget


Pending conversation with Xavier Calvez and Nora Abusitta in ICANN 54



    • During ICANN 54 in Dublin, the ALAC to meet with Xavier Calvez to discuss FY17 Special Budget Request, with a focus on core activities/programs such as the Leadership Training Program
    • During ICANN 54 in Dublin, the ALAC to meet with Nora Abusitta to discuss this recommendation and the Next Gen Program, ICANN Fellowship, and Auction Proceeds
  • (O&E SC): 
    • O&E SC co-chairs to review the appropriate O&E programs and come up with key ideas for those programs. This can be a preparatory work for the conversation with Xavier. 
    • Staff to invite the O&E SC co-chairs to the RALO secretariat session that will review the FY17 special budget request (Tue 29 Sep, 18:00 UTC); to add this as an agenda item 

    • During ICANN 54 in Dublin, the ALAC to meet with GSE Staff and discuss the lack of communications/collaboration/synergy between GSE and some RALOs in outreach & engagement activities (exception: AFRALO has a very good synergy with AFRICANN). 
    • Outreach & Engagement SC to review the list of programs identified and see which ones are the most beneficial with great ROIs that need to be kept


  • Define 'programmes' that brought value members to the community.
  • Need to think of ways to optimize budget.
  • Outreach Sub-Committee to identify the so-called programs
  • Finance & Budget Sub-Committee to evaluate the resources used so far and understand whether any additional funds is needed 

    • Need to identify which programs that are most relevant to this recommendation and most valuable. We need to have examples, metrics, RoIs to demonstrate their value. 
    • Re the programs/activities that don't have great ROIs, we shouldn't simply give up but should figure out ways to make them more effective. 
    • The revenue stream of ICANN is uncertain and potential hard decisions in terms of cutting programs/activities may need to be made.  
    • GSE has done events/outreach activities in North America region without contacting or informing NARALO. It would be better to form RALOs-GSE collaboration and improve communication. 
    • We should also recognize the benefits that stem from the great synergy between RALOs and ICANN departments (e.g. AFRALO - AFRICANN) 

    • Dev Anand Teelucksingh has shared the outreach calendar with GSE VPs and encouraged them to include events in the calendar
    • Communications between GSE and At-Large need to be improved, and this can be a point of discussion during ALAC Meeting with the VPs 

Input from Outreach & Engagement Sub-committee: 

  • Define 'programmes' that brought valuable members to the community.
    • Leadership Training
    • Next Gen
    • Fellowship
    • CROPP
    • Regional Strategic Plans
    • Language Services
    • Online courses
    • ATLAS
    • RALO Face-to-Face General Assembly
    • Synergy between certain RALOs and GSE (e.g. AFRALO - AFRICANN) 
  • Continue & increase support for the aforementioned programs 
  • Identify the appropriate staff members as recipients
  • Continue to provide support for people to follow ICANN activities remotely:
    • Cameras (more rooms, not just the ALAC ones)
    • Remote Hubs
  • (O&E SC): 
    • EURALO will organize a networking and outreach event after the GA (coordinated with Jean-Jacques Sahel); it is an open event and is also an opportunity for other RALO members to participate. The event will invite ISOC Europe that will circulate a special invitation to encourage European chapters to participate.  
    • Re support issues for the outreach & engagement programs – if specific programs are identified, they can be submitted as part of the budget request for FY17. O&E SC can help identify appropriate programs. O&E SC with discuss with Xavier Calvez in ICANN 54 to understand how this can be done.
