>"no need to have this text twice in the document"

>"any agreement with other European Org?"
>--> there is an agreement with EuroDIG. Nothing with RIPE nor CENTR yet.
>At this stage, as things might change, I'd prefer not to mention any

>end users vs. Internet users
>--> I know this is a bit of a religious discussion. The ICANN bylaws use:
>"The At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) is the primary organizational
>home within ICANN for individual Internet users."
>So Internet users is now the preferred term.
>No - there are not growing more than the ALS and in Europe Individual
>members are in one ALS
>--> I do not think that the text as it currently is, implies that they
>are growing at a faster rate than ALSes.
>The text is: "There are over 190 At-Large Structures (ALSes) around the
>world and a growing number of independent members."
>It just says that there is an increasing number of independent members,
>but it does not imply that they are growing at a faster rate. May
>suggest removing the ambiguity:
>"There are over 190 At-Large Structures (ALSes) around the world and a
>significant number of independent members."
>ISOC Chapters, capacity building org
>--> I would refrain from mentioning a specific organisation name.
>That said, the sentence needs re-writing. At present it is:
>"Whether it is an Internet-related
>consumer rights group, an academic organization, or a
>public-minded individual, we share a passion for furthering
>the development of ICTs and contributing to policies that
>influence the technical coordination of the Domain Name
>Suggestion for replacement text:
>Our membership is diverse, ranging from Internet-related
>consumer rights groups, academic organizations, computer
>clubs, technical communities, to civil society organizations.
>We share a passion for furthering the development of ICTs
>and contributing to policies that influence the technical
>coordination of the Domain Name System to better serve
>end users.
>(please note z in organisations, in line with the official calling of
>EURALO: European Regional At-Large Organization)
>our community of end users
>--> I don't think we need to repeat this here too. We've repeated it
>enough elsewhere on the flyer.
>Finally -- a sharp eye -- well done to Sébastien for spotting Lorem
>Ipsum in top right hand corner of the 2nd page.
>My suggestion for text there:
>"Our region represents a significant number of Internet users in the
>world. EURALO has a significant voice in influencing ICANN's
>multistakeholder policy development. Why don't you consider joining as
>an individual or with your organization? *The Internet is yours.*"
