>September 2010 EURALO Secretariat Monthy Report
>A EURALO General Assembly took place at the Internet Governance Forum
>(IGF) in Vilnius, Lithuania, on Wednesday 15 September 2010 from 18:00 -
>20:00 local time. It was attended in person by representatives from 10
>ALSes, and remotely by representative from two ALSes.
>ICANN Staff attended the meeting remotely.
>The GA took place immediately after a EURODIG meeting and therefore had
>the pleasure of the presence of several guests, including some from
>potential EURALO ALS applicants: Yuliya Morenets (Together Against
>Cybercrime, France), Oksana Prykhodko (European Media Platform, Ukraine)
>and Tetiana Popova (Ukrainian Internet Association). Many other guests
>were present too.
>Remote participation was possible by using the Webex System used
>throughout the IGF. Whilst it is acknowledged that technical intricacies
>made remote participation challenging (the interfacing of a face to face
>meeting with public address microphone system, with Webex, as well as an
>Adigo line is technically challenging), especially due to the fact that
>the room's acoustics were far from adequate, eventually most technical
>problems were overcome.
>The following action items stemmed out of the meeting:
>- ICANN Budget
>EURALO will submit a proposal to the ICANN budget process to ask for
>travel funding for the next EURALO meeting which will be held in
>conjunction with the ICANN European meeting.
>A note will be added to the EURALO budget, that printing material costs
>should be covered by ICANN.
>- Review of EURALO By-laws and needs for revision
>There have recently been many enquires to members of the EURALO Board
>about individuals being able to join EURALO. So far, individual members
>do not hold voting rights, but have taken part in working groups and on
>the Board, on a case by case basis. A solution is sought so as to be
>able to grow the EURALO region membership.
>Evan Leibovitch very kindly gave a short remote presentation explaining
>the NARALO rules pertaining to unaffiliated members. We have named this
>"Option A".
>Another option is option B:
>OPTION A: Formally create a new membership category for unaffiliated members
>OPTION B: Create a new ALS within the current structure that serves as
>the home to unaffiliated members
>The EURALO leadership will submit a proposal in writing for possible
>Bylaw changes to the regional members. In addition, The proposed changes
>will include provisions to include unaffiliated members and also review
>the term limits for Board members. They will also look into a possible
>alignment of all EURALO elections. These discussions will soon be opened
>within EURALO, with an outcome and decisions due to take place at the
>ICANN Cartagena Meeting in December 2010.
>- EURALO ALAC Election
>Sandra Hoferichter was unanimously endorsed by the EURALO members
>present in the meeting. Congratulations to Sandra!
>- EURALO Board Elections
>Yjrö Länsipuro was unanimously elected to the EURALO Board by the

>asked to be replaced in all the discussion and actions taking place in
>the ALAC in relation to the At-Large Board Director election. Olivier
>Crépin-Leblond volunteered to replace Sébastien in all the discussion
>and actions taking place in the ALAC in relation to the At-Large Board
