OK, here's some notions:
How about $5,000 for regional survey research work on matters of policy importance to consumers in the NA region. So that we don't have to keep winging it so much when we need to talk intelligently about what people want.
How about $1,000 to make an outreach video for YouTube, Blip.TV and other fora that ICANN doesn't seem to see the value of.
How about $3,000 in travel expenses for members of the NA community to travel to other ICANN regional and community meetings (not the thrice-weekly big meetings, but the frequent smaller ones the organization holds for the contracted parties and others)? The user community should have a forum to voice user needs at these meetings and be there as a representative to check on what everyone else is up to.
How about $10K for creation and maintenance of a real NA RALO web site and presence? Not some crap wiki on the ICANN site.
