Dear Members of the Finance & Budget sub-committee,

on Wednesday I had a one hour call with Cherine Chalaby, the Board
member who is both Chair of the Board's new gTLD Committee, but also
Chair of the Board Finance Committee. We discussed several subjects.
Amongst those subjects was the one of the At-Large Summit proposal.

As a follow-up, Cherine very kindly sent me an email confirming his
answers to some of my questions. Please be so kind to find below, the
answers that are pertaining to the At-Large Summit.

Kind regards,

Dear Olivier,

Further to our telephone conversation yesterday, here are staff's
responses to your questions:

Question 1:   If At-Large asks for financing for the At-Large  summit
then it should not ask for any other financing.    True or False?
Staff's Response 1:  False. Obviously, any other request should be
unrelated to At Large organization meetings (RALOs…), as it would be
difficult to justify other face-to-face meetings of subsets of the
At-Large. organisation.

Question 2:  Specifically, At-Large would like to request funding for
hosting workshops at the next IGF.   Is there an 'envelope' set by ICANN
or each SO/AC request will be considered on its own merit?
Staff's Response 2:  On its own merit. But it is likely that other
organizations will ask for IGF participation and that ICANN responds, as
for this year, with a shared approach (ICANN meeting rooms at the IGF
and participant travel funding, allowing for workshops).

[...answers to other subjects deleted...]

I hope this is helpful.
