Great initiative by the team.
This will surely keep us abreast with the trending AFRALO activities.
For future updates, we can consider adding a section covering
highlights and key milestones achieved by Afralo measured against the
AFRALO strategic plan.
Otherwise very well done to the team :)

have a productive meeting in Montreal

> From the Chair's Desk
> Mohamed El Bashir, AFRALO Chair
> Welcome to AFRALO Newsletter 1st Volume, It's a new dawn!
> I most sincerely welcome everyone to this new dawn of the maiden edition
> of the AFRALO newsletter.
> I am excited that what started like mere suggestion is now coming into
> fruition and thereby positioning AFRALO to join the league of RALOs with
> their own newsletter. I thank all those who volunteered to make this
> happen.
> This is a new dawn looking back from where we were coming from, following
> AFRALO's successful election of new leadership team to be led by Seun
> Ojedeji ( incoming Chair) and Aziz Hilali ( incoming Vice Chair). I do
> appreciate the role and support of Fatimata Seye Sylla (outgoing Vice
> Chair), Let me once again congratulate all the newly elected members and
> seek their support moving forward for the incoming leadership as we
> continue to grow AFRALO members and activities.
> I write this with nostalgia, given that this is my first and probably the
> last as the Editor-in-Chief of this new AFRALO Newsletter, but definitely
> not going to be my last in terms of contributions to the growth and
> sustenance of AFRALO and ICANN community.
> I must at this juncture express our gratitude to ALAC leadership and
> At-Large community members who stood by AFRALO delegates to the Third
> At-Large Summit (ATLAS III), to ensure that we make good use of this
> opportunity, using their contacts and time.
> Special Thanks to Leadership, ICANN staff and particularly the At-Large
> support staff Heidi, Gisella, Silvia, Evin, Yesim), the Travel Team and
> ICANN Africa Engagement Team led by the Vice President, Global Stakeholder
> Engagement, Mr. Pierre Dandjinou. We can only pray and urge you and team to
> continue to pilot the engagement train so as to sustain the tempo so far.
> For our ATLAS III Ambassadors, especially those who eventually succeeded
> in getting the Canadian visa, despite all the hiccups; we are looking
> forward to your active participation in ATLAS III and ICANN meeting in
> Montreal. We must make good use of this opportunity so as to encourage
> others starting from taking the sessions seriously as a number of
> activities have been well lined up including the plenary on Monday with
> focus on “Thought and Change Leadership” and a session on ‘Effective
> Communication’ with a number of breakout sessions, to name a few.
> Above all, network with peers and the wider ICANN community, it offers
> extra-opportunity to learn firsthand and I am sure that by the time ICANN66
> and ATLAS III will be over, there will be light at the end of the tunnel,
> for us as individuals and Africa as a continent.
> Also central is the AFRALO monthly calls, which I think we must continue
> to be an open forum to share ideas of activities in our region and
> coordinate our RALO activities. Our active participation in the
> multistakeholder engagements within the ICANN community is important
> and valuable, so please continue to be active and engaged.
> I would like to welcome Ihab Osman and Mandla Msimang, the newly selected
> African members to the ICANN Board of Directors, we are looking forward to
> work with you and wish you the best in your new roles.I wish everyone,
> especially those traveling to Montreal for ICANN66 and very importantly to
> us, the ATLAS III, a safe trip and active participation.
> Lastly we lost one of the African Internet industry finest, Dr. Tarek
> Kamel (1962-2019) may his soul rest in peace, He was a true African
> Internet Pioneer.
> Enjoy this new dawn!

> The ALAC summarized its comments as follows:
> I. Strengthen ICANN’s bottom-up multistakeholder decision-making process
> and ensure that work gets done and policies are developed in an effective

>    - Issue 1: Prioritization of work. ALAC feels this must be addressed
>    (Category A). Some suggestions include: spreading the workload, increased
>    outreach (ATLAS III, further incentives to keep contributing volunteers,
>    adequate knowledge and resources (specified in II) The entire
>    community,as well as ICANN.org

>    contribute to the resolution of this problem.
>    - Issue 2: Precision in scoping the work. This issue may fall into
>    Category A - must be addressed - or Category B -- might be partially
>    addressed in current processes. We foresee scoping that is tight and smart
>    and relevant to the process. It is impossible to say who should be
>    responsible when so much activity around it is unresolved.
>    - Issue 3: Efficient use of resources. This is a category A issue
>    which must be addressed. We recognize that it might be partially addressed
>    by current processes but cannot assess the situation until these processes
>    are completed. We are concerned that PDP 3.0 may offer efficiency at the
>    cost of inclusiveness which we feel would be a backwards step in the
>    evolution of ICANN’s MSM.
>    - Issue 4: Roles and responsibilities and a holistic view of ICANN.
>    This is a category A issue although it will require further processes to
>    resolve. ALAC seeks a bottom-up review of roles and responsibilities as an
>    independent process.
> II. Support and grow active, informed and effective stakeholder
> participation.
> Strategies to expand the concept of participation are offered as well as
> various resources and support needed to ensure informed participation. We
> consider this to be a Category A issue -- the model cannot evolve if it is
> not addressed. This is a major concern for At Large and other
> volunteer-based constituencies and all will need to be involved in
> addressing it. Support from ICANN,org and the Board will be necessary.
>    - Issue 5: Representativeness and inclusiveness. Mentorship programs
>    are a key part of ensuring that the MSM system remains representative and
>    inclusive. Relevant constituencies as well as staff need to make sure these
>    programs are working as they are intended and that they are reaching the
>    right demographics. Inclusiveness at the leadership level needs to be
>    improved through a bottom up process with staff assistance.
> III. Sustain and improve openness, inclusivity, accountability and
> transparency.
>    - Issue 6: Culture, trust and silos. This is a category A issue that
>    needs to be addressed in this process. All constituencies need to reach
>    across their boundaries, respect for other viewpoints must be reinforced.
>    This is a problem in many large organizations and there are professional services
>    available to help build trust and cooperation. By engaging some of these
>    services, ICANN.org

>    consensus is the goal of the issues already listed. Preserving the voice of
>    end users in the decision-making processes is crucial to ICANN’s MSM model
>    -- a Category A issue in which all parties play a role but the role of the
