The original  proposal for   ICANN funding 

At-Large FY17 Budget Development Workspace

The NARALO meetings at the requested General Assembly will focus on three specific components:
Budget  Proposal to FBSC 

  1. How to better engage our ALSs – also known within ICANN as “inreach” – in a frank examination of expectations, program execution and community adhesion, we intend to deliver a one-day workshop intended to discover what needs to be done, both by ICANN and the NARALO community, to maximize volunteer participation, increase the ability to represent the best interests of end-users, as well as increase ICANN's “on the street” relevance.
  2. Policy briefings on critical ICANN issues intended to ensure that NARALO ALS representatives are adequately informed to educate their ALS memberships, and that they are better able to channel bottom-up end-user perspectives and ideas into the At-Large community’s policy debates. NARALO members have traditionally been the source of a large proportion of At-Large's policy initiatives, and such interactive briefings are intended to go beyond the traditional webinar, to maintain and enhance the capability for the NARALO community to sustain this momentum. .
  3. Leadership training, intended to educate NARALO ALSes about the complex workings inside ICANN, and develop a clear understanding of its role in the broader Internet Governance Ecosystem. As just one example, the current deluge of activity surrounding the transition of the IANA stewardship is mainly the realm of those who can follow it practically full-time, with multiple working groups and dozens (if not hundreds) of proposals in the air. It is our experience that many in the At-Large community do not understand much of what's going on or even the relevance. Awareness of both the processes and the path from idea to policy is a critical part of advancing the public interest within ICANN.



This agenda needs to be populated with key sessions for Attendees  and then we can slot in a series of

 Accessibility and affordabilityLouis Houle Services for specific needs are not always available in regions where bandwidth is low and prices high. Awareness represents a challenge for NARALOers on these issues.
 Security/privacyLouis Houle In line with Eduardo's proposal on the right to forget, the right to forget is part of the security/privacy issues and, as NARALOers, I would like to discuss what we do and what we can do as an end-user body (including outreaching new ALs that are addressing these questions).
