Workshop: At-Large Review
What it is | The first workshop provides the opportunity to learn more about the Review of ALAC that has been completed by Westlake Consulting. In particular, it will provide the chance to ask questions of the reviewers in order to gain a better understanding of the reasoning behind the report’s recommendations.

A copy of the report can be downloaded from the ICANN site [pdf]. And a summary is posted here [pdf].

Why it is important | The workshop will allow the community to meet the members of the Board Governance Committee Working Group who will be responsible for listening to the community feedback to the recommendations in the review and presenting an action plan to the Board.

Who should attend? | The workshop is open to everyone and all those who have an interest in the future of ALAC should attend.

Approach | The discussion will be structured to allow opportunities for those who are participating remotely to take part in the discussion. Please make (brief and succinct) comments or ask questions through this public participation site.

In an attempt to cover as many comments and questions as possible, members of the audience on the day are also encouraged to submit written responses through the public participation site.

It would be useful if those attending the workshop read at least the executive summary of the report beforehand.

“Office Hours” events

In addition to these workshops, there will be two "Office Hour" events. These are two 90 minute sessions where members of the community can talk to the working group members about the ALAC review and its recommendations.

The times are:

  • Wednesday 9-11, Hemingway Room
  • Thursday 10-12, Corner of the foyer farthest from meeting rooms


Our intention is to provide a less formal setting in which people can engage in deeper and longer conversations than are possible at workshops or at the regular working group meetings.

Summaries of the main points raised will be published on the ALAC public comment site.
