> FROM:                 ICANN At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC)
> SUBJECT:            At-Large Structure Certification
> ICANN's At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) is pleased to inform you that
> FMAI has 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 colleagues.
> 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
> 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 signup 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 to discuss
> regional issues. You will also be added to the ALAC-Announce list, which
> is the mailing list for Staff announcements. 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
> staff at atlarge.icann.org.
> -  ALAC website. The ALAC website (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
> staff at atlarge.icann.org.
> -  At-Large Regional Websites. Regional 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 being very substantially revised in the next couple of
> weeks but you should keep the URLs handy and check back regularly. They
> are:
> African Region:
> http://www.afralo.org/
> Asia/Australia/Pacific Region:                  http://www.apralo.org/
> European Region:

> North American Region:                          http://www.naralo.org/
> - Regional WiKi: Each At-Large Region has a Wiki that allows the region to
> collaborate. These are maintained by the community and create the regional
> websites shown above. This framework is in the final stages of preparation
> but if you wish to have a user account, send an email to
> staff at atlarge.icann.org
> 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
> staff at atlarge.icann.org.
