> Dear All,
> Firstly I thank you all for the momentous task and efforts in the ICANN 45
> Meeting. Whilst I could not be with you in person, I tried to connect
> remotely on occasion but the challenge of being awake for 24 hours is
> something that a mere mortal struggled with. Neverthless, it has been good
> to follow the progress and the discussions from afar.
> This has also been a good time to see how remote participation can be
> improved to keep ALSes engaged whilst they are at home. As you conclude the
> ICANN 45, I wish you all the very best. I am not sure if the Public Forum
> has concluded but I would ask that someone please raise that GAC should
> have influence on visa arrangements for members of Advisory
> Committees/SOs/NomComs and there should be a level of flexibility to enable
> them to collect it on arrival. Oksana, it would be great if you could speak
> up for some of us who have had issues with our visas.
> Neverthless, I would like to thank the global At Large community [you all
> are incredible and super AWESOME], and particularly the RALO Secretariats
> and Executives for the manner in which they have continued to coordinate
> the participation of all. Last but not least I would like to thank Oliver
> for his dynamic leadership of the ALAC and my colleagues in the ALAC for
> their immense contribution to advocacy for At Large. Thank you also to all
> the members of the ExCom for the dynamic work throughout the year, you have
> all been incredible Olivier, Carlton, Evan, Tijani and Rinalia.
> And in honour of all end users around the globe, I would also like to say
> farewell to our colleagues who are leaving the ALAC but are not leaving the
> At Large family at the end of ICANN 45. Thank you for your immense
> contribution. On the same token, I would like to welcome all the new
> re-appointments and new appointments to the ALAC. I look forward to
> learning from you all.
> I was pleased when Gunela reminded the community of the issue of "Access"
> and the heart of the work in ALAC is the issue of "Access" for the end
> user.
> It remains a privilege to serve you all.
> Warm Regards from a sunny Fiji,
