We are not currently funded for the Liaison to the SSAC, but generally SSAC has provided support for that. Currently the two Liaisons to the GNSO and ccNSO (Olivier and Maureen) are funded due to their roles as EURALO Chair and APRALO ALAC Member, and we have not been allowed to reallocate the Liaison funding for other purposes.

Although the formal FY17 process is ongoing, we have been allowed to use the two travel slots for the last meeting of FY16.

There is a long-standing process by which unused travel slots within a region are allocated by regional leadership, and we are doing an equivalent process with these At-Large-wide slots. In consultation and with the unanimous support of the ALT, I am announcing that the additional travellers to the ICANN55 meeting in Helsinki will be Dev Anand Teelucksingh and Daniel Nanghaka.
