Dear All,

As a follow up to this discussion, please note that both ATLAS I and ATLAS II resulted in Board resolutions congratulating the At-Large community for the successful summit as well as acknowledging the receipt of the Declarations.

  *   ATLAS I – Board Resolution<https://features.icann.org/2009-06-26-large-summit-work>; ATLAS 1 Declaration in Statement form<https://atlarge.icann.org/advice_statements/9261>
  *   ATLAS II – Acknowledgment of Second At-Large Summit Declaration<https://features.icann.org/acknowledgment-second-large-summit-declaration>; ATLAS II Declaration in Statement form<https://atlarge.icann.org/advice_statements/9735>; ATLAS II Recommendations Implementation Report<https://atlarge.icann.org/advice_statements/9917>

In addition, the implementation of the ATLAS II Declaration included communication between the Board Chairman and the ALAC Chair on two occasions:

  *   Letter from Steve Crocker to Alan Greenberg<https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/correspondence/crocker-to-greenberg-19oct16-en.pdf> (19 October 2016)
  *   Letter from Cherine Chalaby to Maureen Hilyard<https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/correspondence/chalaby-to-hilyard-25sep19-en.pdf> (25 September 2019)

As we get ready for ATLAS III<https://atlarge.icann.org/events/atlas-3-en>, many thanks for all the hard work that has gone into its preparation and in its implementation.

Kind regards,

From: At-Large <at-large-bounces at atlarge-lists.icann.org> on behalf of Carlton Samuels <carlton.samuels at gmail.com>

You have a fuller memory of the names of the band. I was sure there were others whose names I could not recall at the minute.

Memory refreshed for Alan and Leon.

I'm going to be the skunk at this party, if only because I'm tetchy on ingrates and it's irritating me to distraction.  Plus, I'm sensing a devaluation of the no-sleep-allnighter work Lance, Evan, Dev, myself and a few others did writing up this bleeding thing!

Yup. Alan was well involved too.

I'm sure I have the Mexico City (ATLAS I) communique on a storage device somewhere. We all didn't go there waiting to be touched. Some of us did some work. When I find it I shall put it up too.

Wolf Ludwig and I pulled together the leaders of five working groups to produce a communique of substance and quality. He personally put it in the hands of Twomey and I did the same for Dengate-Thrush at the closing ceremony.

ALAC never received a written acknowledgement of receipt, let alone appreciation for the diligence.
I can imagine the interval between hand and bin could have been measured in minutes.

It's not even called a communique at ICANN.org so you won't find it if you look that way. Just individual reports of the working groups [atlarge.icann.org]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__atlarge.icann.org_events_summit-2Dwg-2Den&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=ds9md1zoepmwqw2nfk-Vs9ssxn1I3jPs97ekKkctEkM&m=EaaP2PkA-s22zlx4gU5Fc6Y6xDnFXy0QjVOqOERDEnc&s=0PnKqS75aiYohgNTKYJItj_Aem2oT9eNeHbRt_DhCaY&e=>, never acknowledged as ALAC advice or useful feedback of any kind. There were never referenced in any subsequent ICANN activity or decision.

Impact my eye. Hundreds of person-hours bypassed before our eyes.
