Subject: [NA-Discuss] Welcome to ICANN At-Large!

Dear Judith,

ICANN's At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) is pleased to inform you that
(188) Capital Area Globetrotters been certified as an At-Large Structure
(ALS).  The ALAC greatly appreciates your group's interest in involving
individual users in ICANN and looks forward to working with you and your

The purpose of ALS certification is to recognize that your organization
meets the necessary criteria to involve individual Internet users at the
local or issue level in ICANN activities, and that your organization will
support its individual members' informed participation in ICANN efforts that
affect end-users.

The ALAC is eager to promote a productive working relationship between your
organization, other ALS, and the ALAC (and ICANN in general), and your input
on how we can make this a success would be greatly appreciated.

We would like to offer some initial tools to help your organization keep its
members informed (about significant news from ICANN and information on ICANN
policy-development efforts) and engaged in activities of interest:

- Point of Contact for your Organisation: Please send an email to
<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>
staff at atlarge.icann.org<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org> identifying the
names and email addresses of one or two individuals who will be the point of
contact for information and correspondence regarding ICANN At-Large. If this
changes, please let us know.

- At Large Mailing Lists. There are many At Large email lists, for each
region; you can sign up for them and manage your subscriptions at:


http://atlarge-lists.icann.org/mailman/listinfo . The points of contact you
identify will automatically be added to your region's list just for
accredited ALSes to discuss regional issues and to the mailing list for
Staff announcements (only Staff can post messages to that list); you are
invited to join others as you wish.

- ALS information.  Information about your organization will be shared with
the At-Large community to enable individuals interested in your group's
activities to contact you, and to encourage cooperation with other groups
interested in ICANN activities in your geographic region. Please complete
and email the form at the bottom of this note to
<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>
staff at atlarge.icann.org<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>.

-  ALAC website. The ALAC website ( <http://www.atlarge.icann.org>

www.atlarge.icann.org<http://www.atlarge.icann.org>) is a good source for
ICANN news and information of interest to individual Internet users.  We
encourage you to provide your members with a link.  The ALAC relies on
volunteers to translate information into multiple languages. Translations of
documents on the website are welcome and should be sent to
<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>
staff at atlarge.icann.org<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>.

-  At-Large Regional Websites. Regional wiki webpages also have been created
to distribute information (including in local languages) on activities,
events and issues of particular interest to people in each region. These are
maintained by the community. They are:

African Region:

We have included an ALS Starter Kit that includes key information on ALAC
and At-Large communication tools. We have also included the Beginners Guide
to Participating in At-Large which explains the organization of the At-Large
community and how to participate in its activities.

We look forward to working with you and your organization's members to
advance individual Internet users' interests within ICANN.  If you have any
questions, or need additional information, please contact us at
