The At-Large Review Working Party is calling for comments across the At-Large Community for its Draft Charter: https://community.icann.org/x/CcRYAw. To provide your input, please log in to Confluence wiki and submit it on that page using the comment function by December 9, 2015 at 23:59 UTC. See the At-Large Review background information below.
ICANN Bylaws require independent reviews of its organisationsal effectiveness to reinforce its various accountability mechanisms to the community. The first review of the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC)<https://community.icann.org/x/NxAnAw> was held from 2008 to 2012. The focus of that review was on ALAC itself because the Regional At-Large Organisations (RALOs) and their At-Large Structures (ALSs) were newly established and it would have been inappropriate to review them at that time.
The current At-Large Review<https://community.icann.org/x/Y5MQAw> is underway. The focus of this Review is to examine organizational effectiveness of the At-Large community, with the focus on the five RALOs and the nearly 200 ALSs. This review is scheduled to begin approximately in April 2016 and be carried out by an Independent Examiner. Involvement of the At-Large community as well as input and participation from the broader community are important components of this review process.
As discussed in ALAC Meetings, the Organizational Effectiveness Committee of the Board<https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/organizational-effectiveness-committee-2014-03-21-en> has requested that an At-Large Review Working Party<https://community.icann.org/x/aZMQAw> be assembled to function as a liaison between the ALAC/At-Large community, the Independent Examiner and the Organizational Effectiveness Committee of the Board to provide input on review criteria and the At-Large assessment, coordinate interviews and objectively supply clarification and responses to the preliminary findings and recommendations. Once a final report is issued and the Board takes action on it, as appropriate, the At-Large Working Party is expected to coordinate with the At-Large community to prepare an Implementation Plan and champion implementation of improvement activities.
The draft charter of the At-Large Review Working Party was reviewed in its teleconference on November 23, 2015<https://community.icann.org/x/kcJYAw>. The draft charter is now open for comments from RALO members. You may download and review the draft charter from this wiki page: https://community.icann.org/x/CcRYAw.
