Program Goals

Community leaders have outlined several key benefits that could be achieved through a programmed approach to global outreach:

  1. Building local/regional awareness and recruitment of new community members;
  2. More effectively engaging with current members and/or "reactivating” previously engaged ICANN community members; and
  3. 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 FY18 Budget allocates resources and Staff has been directed to continue implementation and rigorous evaluation in order to assist in determining whether such resourced outreach merits support in future fiscal cycles.

(green star) NEW for FY18: A consolidated CROP Procedures & Guidelines page explains the program's features, requirements, policies, principles, and roles/responsibilities.


A brief orientation to CROP:

  • There are two CROP forms required for each Trip. Each one starts as a DRAFT and, after applicable reviews, is APPROVED for further processing: 
    • A DRAFT Trip Proposal (blank templates are available as explained in the next column)
    • A DRAFT Trip Assessment (complete ≤ weeks after returning)
  • When planning a CROP funded trip, there are two time-frames to consider:
    • Six (6) weeks for ICANN Constituency Travel (minimum requirement) from the date all approvals/confirmations have been obtained.
    • How much time you anticipate needing to obtain internal organization approvals, regional Stakeholder Engagement concurrence, and Staff review for completeness. 
  • Your designated Program Coordinator (PC) can help with the process. Who is your PC? See: CROP Contacts
  • To learn about the policies, rules, roles, and related information, go to: CROP Procedures & Guidelines
  • You may enter a DRAFT Proposals at any time, but your organization must have an approved Outreach Strategic Plan BEFORE your individual form can be processed. 


To enter a DRAFT Trip Proposal or a DRAFT Trip Assessment:

1Depending on your organization, go to either: At-Large RALO DRAFTS and GNSO Constituency DRAFTS.

There is a blank Outreach Strategic Plan template for your organization (uppermost table).

An initial set of blank templates (and corresponding DRAFT Trip Assessments) appears in a separate table.
Select the next available row that contains no information (blank cells) in the data columns.
