  Dear Winthrop,

  The Civil Society Engagement - Working Call will take place tomorrow, 25 May at 13:00 - 14:00 UTC (not today, as you mentioned):

  Below are details or that call: 


  1.  New Content layout - advice on improvements, where do we have content gaps?
  2.  Events - update the listing
  3.  Supporting outreach - presentations and materials (question: what issues does CS in ICANN work on?)
  4.  Contributing to regional newsletters

  Attachment:  This draft document is intended as a simple one-pager introducing the At-Large community, NCSG, NCUC and NPOC.  Text taken very much from descriptions developed by the community. We will use these descriptions (edited and adapted as appropriate) in presentation slides and online, your comments would be helpful.  

  We discussed developing brief statements about the topics civil society groups focused on (bite-size was the notion mentioned by some of the Fellows and NextGen participants on Marrakech).  We will share some of those issues tomorrow, they need fleshing out.

  The call will be in English;
  French and Spanish interpretations will be provided

  Please find below participation details for Civil Society Engagement:

  > Dear Andrew and John,
  > ICANN's At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) is pleased to inform you that VITUS has been certified as an At-Large Structure (ALS). The ALAC greatly appreciates your group's interest in involving individual users in APRALO and ICANN and looks forward to working with you and your colleagues.
  > The ALAC is eager to promote a productive working relationship between your organization, other ALSes, and the ALAC (and ICANN in general), and your input on how we can make this a success would be greatly appreciated.
  > It?s very important to keep the members of your organization informed (about significant news from ICANN and information on ICANN policy-development efforts) and engaged in activities of interest. Here are a few of the tools members of At-Large find useful:
  > The At-Large wiki space is where you can find most of the relevant information:
  > The At-Large introductory page<https://community.icann.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=2265510> help you navigate through the wiki contents. This is where you can find the latest announcements, and subscribe to the At-Large Google calendar<https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/Calendar> at the bottom of the page. This will ensure you never miss a meeting!
  > >From any chosen page in the At-Large wiki, you can find your bearings easily by navigating via the purple box at the top left hand corner of the page. It is very convenient to be able to consult the latest At-Large Policy Development Activity<https://community.icann.org/x/bwFO> , find out more about the Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs)<https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/Regional+At-Large+Organisations>, and about At-Large Working Groups<https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+Working+Groups> . For the most up to date information about At-Large meetings during ICANN Public meetings, it is worth bookmarking this wiki page<https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/ICANN+Meetings>!
  > Regional wiki webpages also have been created to distribute information (including in local languages) on activities, events and issues of particular interest to people in each region. These are maintained by the community. They are:
  > African Region: http://www.afralo.org<http://www.afralo.org/>
  > Asia/Australia/Pacific Region: http://www.apralo.org<http://www.apralo.org/>

  > At-Large Mailing Lists. There are many At-Large email lists, for each region, you can sign up to them and manage your subscriptions at:
  > http://atlarge-lists.icann.org/mailman/listinfo . The primary and secondary points of contact you have identified in the application form will automatically be added to your region's list just for accredited ALSes to discuss regional issues and to the mailing list for Staff announcements (only Staff can post messages to that list); you are invited to join others as you wish.
  > ALAC website. The ALAC website<https://atlarge.icann.org/> is a good source for ICANN news and information of interest to individual Internet users. We encourage you to provide your members with a link. The ALAC relies on volunteers to translate information into multiple languages. Translations of documents on the website are welcome and should be sent to At-Large staff.<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>
  > ICANN website: The ICANN website<https://www.icann.org/> is where all announcements<https://www.icann.org/news> are posted, and where you can find practical information about ICANN Public meetings<http://meetings.icann.org/> .
  > Skype chat: At-Large community members and staff use Skype group chats extensively. A group chat exists for most Working Groups and RALOs. So please don?t hesitate to send At-Large Staff your Skype ID and we?ll gladly add you to the relevant chats. Please click here <http://www.skype.com/en/> if you don?t have a Skype account. It?s free and staff are available to help if you run into any trouble.
  > Facebook: The At-Large community has its own Facebook page<https://www.facebook.com/icann.atlarge?fref=ts> . It?s useful to keep up with announcements and helpful information.
  > Twitter: Members of At-Large tweet extensively and are particularly active during ICANN Public meetings. Follow At-Large on Twitter<https://twitter.com/ICANNAtLarge?lang=fr%3E> !
  > We will forward the At-Large Beginners? guide shortly, as it is in the process of being updated. In the meantime, please refer to the recording of our Informal Welcome Webinar<https://icann.adobeconnect.com/p2zgjaka0ml/?launcher=false&fcsContent=true&pbMode=normal> for new ALSes which took place in July2015. Another series of on boarding webinars will be scheduled shortly and notification will go out to all new ALSes.
  > We look forward to working with you and your organization's members to advance individual Internet users' interests within ICANN. If you have any questions, or need additional information, please contact us at staff at atlarge.icann.org<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>.
