> 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.
> *ALAC website.* The ALAC website <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

> * ICANN website: *The ICANN website <https://www.icann.org/> is where all announcements
> <https://www.icann.org/news>are posted, and where you can find practical
> information about ICANN Public meetings <http://meetings.icann.org/>.
> *Skype chat:* At-Large community members and staff use Skype group chats
> extensively. A group chat exists for most Working Groups and RALOs. So
> please don’t hesitate to send At-Large Staff your Skype ID and we’ll gladly
> add you to the relevant chats. Please click here <http://www.skype.com>
> if you don’t have a Skype account. It’s free and staff are available to
> help if you run into any trouble.
> *Facebook:* The At-Large community has its own Facebook page
> <https://www.facebook.com/icann.atlarge?fref=ts>. It’s useful to keep up
> with announcements and helpful information
> *Twitter*: Members of At-Large tweet extensively and are particularly
> active during ICANN Public meetings. Follow At-Large on Twitter
