Hello All,

I believe the idea behind this strategy is a very good one and I support
it. But I will like to encourage the executives to seek for more founding
to enable more of these ALS's and individual members to attend these
programs and contribute to discussions.

More often a lot of members desire to attend these programs but do not have
funding ...this was evidenced in the just ended ICANN 59 in Jorburg,  where
large number of ALS's participated because of the support we received.

Best Regards,
