[APAC-Discuss] APRALO and APNIC - what do you want?

Hi Holly and APRALO members

We are currently organising training sessions with APNIC for our PacINET in
Tonga in September (the week after the regional IGF). APNIC has been a part
of our PICISOC conference every year for years.  And Save is also a regular
PacINET participant so our members get ICANN updates as well. 

Because we hold our PacINET in a different country each year, APNIC is able
to do outreach for themselves and offer skills updates not only for PICISOC
members, but also to non-PICISOC members from the host country whom we
encourage to attend.. 

Their training is included in our outreach strategy and encourages new
members to join up with PICISOC as a result of what they learn from our
conference, the training, and the networking contacts they make.  

 I can certainly recommend including APNIC training sessions and workshops
into your own events, especially as you can choose what training you need
and for how long, etc.

Hi Everyone

Just to follow up on a relationship (and maybe MoU) with APNIC.

Before I get back to APNIC, please everyone, have a look at the APNIC site

The offer lots of training on a range of numbering issues, including one
hour online sessions on a range of Internet issues and longer 2 or 3 day
workshops throughout the region.

They also participate and/or hold many conferences.  And maybe we can see
speaking slots in their conferences

I imagine what we would want to ask for (at the least) is updates on their
training activities - particularly in the various APNIC region.  We may also
want free or reduced cost participation in the longer training courses and
possible reduced or free access to their conferences - and maybe free access
to some of their materials in their library. (I am not sure how much it all
costs, but that could be worked through).

I am sure there are a variety of needs in each ALS.  So the first step is
everyone having a look at their site and see what they offer that would be
of particular interest to your ALS.

With that information, I can get back to APNIC and start discussions on
closer cooperation
