Hi Rudi,

I think you cannot assume that everyone participates on everything. For 
me it is also not clear how much activity is needed or desired. Do you 
want every ALS to participate in the monthly call or do you just want 
them to visit the yearly GA?
And what will EURALO gain from putting ALSes on such a list other than 
making it easier to reach a quorum?

I am not necessarily against this measure, however it does not feel 
right if the board is not involved in these kind of decisions.  Is there 
anything in our bylaws on this subject?

Kind regards,

Mathieu Paapst

However, it is clear the number of ALSes is an important factor for ALAC to show interest and participation in the concept of the multi-stakeholder process of ICANN.

If no response is received within the given timeframe, the ALS would be put on an "non-active" list. This would also allow us to have a correct quorum and election mechanism. This mechanism is a temporary procedure, not being voted on by the board, but as other decisions has also been taken without explicit approval of the board, I assume this one can also go through.
