Thanks you for an excellent report.

Regarding item #3: What is the expectation in preparing ALSes for the ATLAS
II meeting? This can be multifold. For example, is it capacity building?,
is it  explaining what is going to happen during the event?, is it a about
if my ALS is going?, etc?

Something else: Have Carlos or Matt contacted you to update the main point
of contact for all ALSes in our region? I am asking because according to
the ATLAS II time line (
https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/ATLAS+II+Timeline) there is a
8/26 deadline to have all this information ready and up to date and staff
suppose to have contacted you to help with this. Let me know.

By the way, we should purse the RIR idea. Who has good relations with ARIN?
