Estimado Olivier, coincido totalmente con Carlton. ALAC ha progresado
muchísimo; cuando una entidad progresa de esa forma, es que está muy bien

Intentaremos redoblar nuestros esfuerzos de colaboración y participación.

Que todos tengamos un excelente  2014, personal y profesional.

Mis cordiales saludos

Alberto soto

 Querido Olivier: 
 También hay que decir que el aviso de que se está recibida por el At-Large
en  Asuntos de ICANN es decididamente también un testimonio de la dirección
de la ALAC. 

 Por mi parte, quisiera dejar constancia de mi propio sentido del destacado
papel que 
 jugar en este desarrollo como Presidente - diplomático plomo y delegado en
 otras áreas de la ICANN. Suyo ha sido una tarea ardua, que tiene 
 aceptado y trabajado con una diligencia que hace que algunos de nosotros
preocupados por 
 su bienestar. 

 Take a bow.
