[alac] Consultations on the establishment of the EURALO
this message has been sent in the last few days to our European ALSes, to start a public consultation on the structure and bylaws of the EURALO. While the consultation is targeted at European groups and individuals rather than at the Committee itself, you might be interested in knowing what's going on.
====== I am writing to you as a representative of an accredited ICANN At Large Structure from Europe, and asking you to kindly circulate this message to the appropriate structures in your organization.
As you know, the initial members of ICANN's At-Large Advisory Committee were appointed to facilitate the establishment of Regional At Large Organizations. It is now time to establish this organization in Europe.
The European Regional At Large Organization is meant to be a lightweight forum for European organizations and users to meet, with the main purpose of selecting two representatives in the At Large Advisory Committee.
To start the process, a few of us tried to draft a set of principles for the new organization, and collect them into a draft document, which can be downloaded from this link:
It is just meant to be a starting point, as we look forward to fully discussing our ideas with you.
To help the discussion, we established a web forum at the following URL:
(The forum was kindly provided by the Belgian chapter of the Internet Society, and we really would like to thank them.) We encourage you to review our document and submit your comments through that forum by February 15. After collecting all comments, a final version of the document will be drafted and you will be asked to approve it. The document will then be used to draft the actual Bylaws.
I am at your disposal to further explain the matter and answer any questions you might have.
Kind regards, -- vb. [Vittorio Bertola - v.bertola [a] bertola.eu.org]<----- http://bertola.eu.org/ <- Prima o poi...
