Roberto and all,
The window is open and the leaders of At-Large already show a lot of added
All the feedback given to me regarding At-Large are all very positive.
During the presentation to the staff Fadi said:
"Each time I am going to a country I will meet leaders from the At-Large
community and from the local ALSes".
It seems that other senior staff will do the same.
I hope that At-Large will see that also as a mutual help to strengthen the
relationship, the outcome of At-Large and ICANN but also the engagement.
He also launch the initiative for a new strategic approach for Africa with
a lot of members of At-Large.
Similar initiative is launch for LAC region.
He comments very positively all the interaction with Olivier as Chair of
Some decision for the new organization comes from comments by At-Large
(compliance, communication, Outreach…).
Beside the hard work of At-Large staff, all that definitely help the new
position for Heidi.
I am sure that At-Large (ALAC, ALSes, members of ALS, individual
participants…) will show that they deserve such attention and position in
the organization.

May I suggest that At-Large start to think if the new staff organization
have consequences on it's own processes and priorities?

All the best
