16. When an ALS representative does not vote in 3 consecutive NARALO elections or does not contribute a comment on ICANN policy through collaboration on the At-Large discussion lists in 12 consecutive months, it automatically loses its voting rights and active status within the NARALO. The ALS should be notified of the status change and may regain its voting rights and active status if within the next 12 months it votes or participates to online discussions, otherwise the Chair will submit to ALAC a request for de-certification of that ALS.
If you look at the very bottom of this string, you will see a link to www.naralo.org that links to all of our organizing documents.
Now, in reality, we have not done these notifications, nor have we requested any de-certifications. I guess its good wording to have in just in case we need to do this.

Cool, I guess I should have read them. Being lazy, and not knowing where the OP is/are: How do they become inactive? Is there an automatic mechanism or does someone have to do something.

Some ALS may have joined because they are genuinely interested but they may just not have the capacity/bandwidth to participate quite yet. So unless there is malfeasance or a resignation, I suggest you leave them on an inactive list indefinitely
