At-Large Community Onboarding

The Community Onboarding Pilot Program is a collaboration between ICANN and the ICANN Community to effectively integrate new Community members into their volunteer roles. The program aims to create a structured, year-round (not Meetings-focused) Onboarding process taiored to each Community group. The program consists of three pillars:
  1. Welcome: Timely welcome of new Community member

  2. Onboarding: Structured courses, materials and tools for individuals to learn about their Community and how to participate

  3. Mentoring: Individualized peer-mentorship for selected members

Members of the SC on O&E are building out this structured Onboarding process for At-Large. See At-Large Community Onboarding for presentations and work developed to date.

Beran Dondeh Gillen, Isaac Maposa and Dev Anand Teelucksingh have been working on the Community Onboarding Project. See At-Large Community Onboarding for presentations and work developed to date.

Between ICANN58 and ICANN59, the work developed has been shared on RALO Leadership Calls, RALO Monthly Calls and ALAC Monthly Calls.

Note: The program builds upon an O&E presentation introducing At-Large to NextGen.

Possible FY18 budget requests, coordinated outreach for IGF 2017: Proposal submitted and approved. See:

Despite substantial At-Large presence at IGF 2016 Mexico and a significant opportunity for outreach, there was a lack of awareness and promotion of At-Large.

The O&E proposal for the IGF 2017 panel session was not selected by IGF MAG, but an APRALO proposal was approved. Therefore the budget request for Outreach is still active (two travelers approved; one Outreach Subcommittee member and one ALAC member) for travel support to the IGF 2017 Meeting. Support is contingent upon:

(1) MAG approval of at least one At-Large RALO workshop; and

(2) Submission of a detailed report from each traveler within 30 days of related meeting, addressing each request as per itemized metric. The report is to be submitted to sbr-outcomes@icann.org and is a conditional upon future resource allocation. Approved travel includes economy airfare, four travel days and three hotel nights, plus per diems adjusted to regional standard of living.




Actively seek Outreach events to add to the At-Large Outreach Calendars.

Evaluate past Outreach efforts to determine how successful they were.
