Subject: RE: [ALAC] Proposal for ALAC work on future challenges
Thanks for your laudable proposal and initiative. Yes, I would like to form
part of the team as an ordinary member.
I think Internet Governance should be one of the suggested themes to be
addressed since this has always gathered global public interests.
Concerning the name, I have a simple proposal like ALACOM ALAC OUTLOOK
Thanks and best regards

Subject: Re: [ALAC] Proposal for ALAC work on future challenges
after the initial e-mail from a week ago, here are the suggested next
WORK PLAN: as discussed before the vote, the idea is to have a limited
number of themes (not more than 5?) to effectively cover areas the
At-Large structures consider to be strategic. This does not imply any
shift of attention away from other areas currently covered, nor from
existing or expected obligations of the ALAC (response to Board request
for advice, etc). To start the ball rolling, here are my own suggestions:
- The global public interest (definition, overlap or separation of roles
between various parts of the ICANN community, desired contribution from
At-Large structures, action and possible impact by the ALAC on ICANN
policy and orientations);
- Key areas of possible ALAC action to uphold the global public interest
(for starters: new TLDs, WHOIS,...);
- Beyond the ALAC Review recommendations: how to increase the impact of
At-Large within ICANN (policy formation, working with other components of
ICANN, a communications policy for At-Large).
MEMBERSHIP, CHAIR(s): Please indicate if you are interested in being part
of this team, and if you'd accept being co-chair. It is suggested that
once the membership has been approved by the ALAC for 2011-2012, the Task
Force will designate its 2 co-chairs (2 in order to cope with temporary
unavailability of either, and because it's a best practice). When a member
leaves, (s)he may be replaced numerically by another volunteer.
CHARTER: this should cover the term of the mandate (2011-12), strategic
areas to be covered (see above), membership, mode of selection of the two
co-chairs, and the usual administrative aspects (Staff support, frequency
of meetings, reporting, archives, etc.). If our Chair or the ExCom agree,
I would be grateful if Staff sent around what they consider a workable
charter model (when I was on the Board, this was dealt with extensively by
NAME: during the discussion before the vote, TF-F (ALAC Task Force
'Future') was put forward. What's your view?
We'll have time to cover other aspects, or go into more detail, at the
I'd be grateful for your input.
