> Dear Vittorio,
> Please forward this correspondence to the At-Large
> Advisory Committee.
> Dear At-Large Advisory Committee members,
> Vittorio's recent post to CircleID (cited below)
> reflects the frustration of the At-Large. We are a
> community convinced that the ICANN Board has not been
> listening to our input.
> As end-users of the DNS, policy decisions enacted by
> the Board impact us directly and as such we, ICANN's
> largest stakeholder group, warrant seats at the table
> where such decisions are being made -- this is the
> only manner by which we can ensure that our views will
> be taken into account.
> In order to secure representation on the Board we
> members of the At-Large have no choice but to
> establish a Supporting Organization to elect our own
> Board representatives.
> It is long past time to pursue this course of action.
> Every other substantial group within ICANN has such
> representation. Unless you believe that it is
> sufficient for our community to continue being treated
> as a pariah, then I ask you to take action (as did the
> ccTLD community) by laying the groundwork to establish
> our own Supporting Organization.
> Consider your own frustration. Ask yourselves, has an
> advisory body construct well-served the needs of the
> At-Large, or would we better be served by a different
> institutional framework? The ccTLDs recognized that
> their needs weren't being suitably met by ICANN and
> reorganized accordingly. We as an impacted community
> must do the same.
> I ask you to begin by establishing a mailing list
> wherein these and other at-large considerations may be
> thoroughly discussed/debated by the entirety of our
> I ask you to enter into a discussion with your peers
> in the At-Large.
> Best regards,
> Danny Younger
