Dear ALAC members:

Olivier has asked that I remind you to please review and comment on the ICANN Bylaw changes, regarding the ALAC, being proposed by Improvements WT A.  Please see Olivier's e-mail below.

The proposed changes can be found at https://community.icann.org/display/Improve/WT+A%27s+Proposed+ICANN+Bylaw+Changes+for+ALAC+Approval.  This Confluence page also contains an area for your comments at the bottom.

Comments can be submitted until the ALAC meeting on Tuesday, 22 February, during which the revisions will be discussed.

Many thanks,

Seth Greene

Subject: Submission of WT A's proposed ICANN Bylaw revisions to ALAC Chair & ALAC

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<https://community.icann.org/display/Improve/WT+A%27s+Proposed+ICANN+Bylaw+Changes+for+ALAC+Approval>; and
 *   WT A’s Proposed Timetable Regarding ICANN Bylaw Changes – For ALAC Approval<https://community.icann.org/display/Improve/WT+A%27s+Proposed+Timetable+Regarding+ICANN+Bylaw+Changes+for+ALAC+Approval>
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<https://community.icann.org/download/attachments/2951125/Red-Line+of+Bylaw+Revisions+by+WT+A.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1297421030060>.

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<http://www.icann.org/en/reviews/alac/final-report-alac-review-09jun09-en.pdf> (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 Outline<https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AhOqmBdY590QdHR3Tm92N2JLNzlDN1Zva2x2YXpqUlE&hl=en#gid=15>.
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 accordingly.

Warm regards,

Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond
ALAC Chair
