    ICANNWatch Now an Official Voice in a Vacuum

    Welcome to ICANN At-Large! ICANNís Interim At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) reviewed your organizationís application for ďAt-Large StructureĒ (ALS) certification and determined that the criteria for ALS certification has been met. The ALAC is pleased to designate xxx as an ďAt-Large Structure.Ē

    The purpose of ALS certification is to recognize that your organization meets the necessary criteria to involve individual Internet users at the local or issue level in ICANN activities, and that your organization will support its individual members' informed participation in ICANN efforts that affect end-users.

    As you know, the ALAC and At-Large Structure certification are relatively new endeavors for ICANN. We want to promote a productive working relationship between your organization, other "At-Large Structure" groups, and the ALAC (and ICANN in general), and your input on how we can make this a success would be greatly appreciated.

    We would like to offer some initial tools to help your organization keep its members informed (about significant news from ICANN and information on ICANN policy-development efforts) and engaged in activities of interest:

    * ALS email list. Please send an email to michel@xxxxxxxxx identifying the names and email addresses of one or more individuals who will serve as key contacts/representatives from your organization for ICANN At-Large communications and activities.

    * ALS web page. Information about your organization will be posted on the ALAC websites ( and ) to enable individuals interested in your groupís activities to contact you, and to encourage cooperation with other groups interested in ICANN activities in your geographic region. Please complete and email the attached template to michel@xxxxxxxxx and this information will be added to the ALAC websites.

    * ALS logo. You will receive in a separate email a jpeg image for your organization to use on its website to indicate its certification as an ALS.

    * ALAC websites. The ALAC websites ( and ) are a good source for ICANN news and information of interest to individual Internet users (the former was recently launched by the ALAC to encourage dialogue among members of the ICANN community). A comment forum is featured at to encourage interested Internet users and their organizations to communicate online with each other, and with the ALAC, about pending ICANN issues and activities of importance to the At-Large community. Please encourage your members to use it. Also, the ALAC encourages volunteers to translate information into multiple languages. Translations of documents on the websites are welcome and should be sent to .

    * At-Large Announcements. All interested organizations and individuals are encouraged to sign-up for the ALAC announce list. Periodic emails are sent to subscribers regarding important ICANN and At-Large events, issues, and activities. Sign-up at .

    We look forward to working with you and your organizationís members to advance individual Internet usersí interests within ICANN.
