[ALAC] Proposal for ALAC work on future challenges

Dear All,

- thank you Chair for accommodating my request to make a quick oral
presentation this morning (Thursday 17 March);
- I am grateful to Evan and Gareth for moving and seconding a motion, and
thank you colleagues for supporting it.

Taking into account remarks made so far by members of the ALAC, my
proposal now reads:

PURPOSE AND NAME

It is suggested the group be called, at least for the time being, ALAC
Task Force F (for Future), or TF-F. The notion of "task force" underlines
its temporary nature, the fact that its duty is to address a given set of
issues, and that it is expected to deliver results within a given time
frame.

MEMBERSHIP

It is hoped the composition of TF-F will be fairly representative of
overall geographic diversity of the At-Large structures, but clearly
personal motivation is of prime importance. Once the list of members has
been established and agreed upon by ALAC, the members of TF-F will choose
their two co-chairs (this can be done by e-mail, or in a conference call).
Once constituted, TF-F may call upon experts, as required.

PROGRAMME

The first task of TF-F will be to propose a limited list of (perhaps 3 or
4) priority issues which the ALAC should address in the near future,
because of their impact on the global Internet, on ICANN, on At-Large.
ALAC members are encouraged to consult their regional communities on the
topics which are considered of importance. Once the ALAC has established
the initial list of issues, these shall constitute the core of the work
programme for TF-F for 2011.

STAFF SUPPORT

In parallel to the membership of TF-F being finalized, it would be
necessary to finalize arrangements for Staff support for TF-F.

VERY NEXT STEPS

ALAC members interested in taking part in this work are requested to reply
to this e-mail to

*    make known their candidacy
*    list the 3 to 5 topics they consider At-Large should take a position
on, with regard to the future of the Internet, ICANN, or At-Large (in
their order of priority, 1 being the most important or urgent). At this
stage, the wording of these topics should be brief and self-evident.

**


I'd be glad to respond to any questions or comments.

Regards,
Jean-Jacques.
