This new Workspace is the hub for all updates, documents, and work related to At-Large Improvements Work Team A.


The goal of the ALAC/At-Large Improvements project is to review and improve both ALAC/At-Large’s participation in ICANN and the ALSes’ participation in At-Large. This will be done through the implementation of the 13 recommendations outlined in the At-Large Review Work Group's Final Report and detailed in the Simplified At-Large Improvements Implementation Outline.

We have divided these recommendations among four work teams. Work Team A -- the work team on ALAC's continuing purpose -- is assigned the implementation of the following three recommendations:

Rec 1: ICANN bylaws to reflect ALAC's continuing purpose
Rec 10: ALAC/At-Large is home of individual Internet users
Rec 11: Board statement recognizing Rec 10


The members of Work Team A, organized by regional affiliation, are:
