Dear ALAC members:


At-Large Improvements Work Team A has asked the At-Large staff to submit
the WT’s (a) proposed ICANN Bylaw revisions and (b) proposed related
timetable to me, as ALAC Chair.  It further requests that I forward both
to the full ALAC for its feedback, hence this message to you.


The two items for review can be found at the following links (on the WT
A Workspace):

    * WT A’s Proposed ICANN Bylaw Changes -- For ALAC Approval
    * WT A’s Proposed Timetable Regarding ICANN Bylaw Changes – For ALAC

In addition, the proposed Bylaw revisions, in the form of a red-line
markup, can be found at this link (also on the WT A Workspace): 
Red-Line of Bylaw Revisions by WT A


Please be so kind to note that:

    * WT A collaborated closely with ICANN Legal – in particular, with
      Samantha Eisner – in the drafting of these proposed Bylaw
      revisions and the related timetable; both have the full support of
      WT A and of ICANN Legal. 
    * The revisions and timetable satisfy all requirements and
      recommendations within the Final Report of the ALAC Review Working
      Group on ALAC Improvements
      (9 June 2009). 

The specific goal of the revisions is to clarify the ALAC’s and
At-Large’s continuing purpose as the primary home within ICANN of the
voice and concerns of the individual Internet user.  The details of this
continuing purpose can be found in WT A’s Simplified Improvements

Once your feedback has been incorporated and its go-ahead given, the
next step will be to send the proposed revisions to the SIC.  The SIC
will then consider recommending that the Board commence the required
public comment period.  (For that reason, a formal ALAC endorsement of
the text is not necessary at this stage.)


*Please be so kind to give your feedback by the end of Friday, 18
February, 2011. * On the pages of both the proposed revisions and
timetable are sections for ALAC members’ comments. Please fill them


Warm regards,

Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond
ALAC Chair
