Dear Akram:

I am following up on your informal meeting with the ALAC ExCom on the
Friday afternoon after the ICANN Meeting in Singapore.

During that meeting, we informed you of the proposal by both the Latin
American and Caribbean Regional At-Large Organization (LACRALO) and the
European Regional At-Large Organization (EURALO) to pool their FY12
project resource allocations, along with that of the African Regional
At-Large Organization (AFRALO), to enable AFRALO to hold a General
Assembly (GA) in Dakar.

We are now formally making this proposal to you via the attached proposal.

The proposal was initially drafted in Spanish by Sergio Salinas Porto,
an ALAC member from LACRALO. Sergio included input from all five
At-Large regions, after the topic was discussed during a recent Regional
Secretariats Meeting. The draft was next translated into English by
ICANN’s Language Services Department, and both the Spanish and English
pages were posted on a dedicated Confluence wiki page
(https://community.icann.org/x/XYQKAQ). Finally, the proposal was
reviewed and commented on by all five Regional At-Large Organizations
(RALOs), and its principles were approved.

I would like to applaud the RALOs for the solidarity and foresight
demonstrated by this proposal. At-Large believes that all ICANN
communities need to begin looking beyond their own immediate needs and
circumstances, and the enclosed proposal exemplifies exactly this type
of consensus-based leadership.

I therefore trust that this formal proposal will meet with your approval.

Warmest regards,
Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond
ALAC Chair
