ALAC Bylaw Change

Open: 7 November 07
Closed: 7 December 07

Explanation:A proposed bylaw change for the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) - the part of ICANN that represents ordinary Internet users - is designed to allow the regional bodies (RALOs) to take a greater role in the approval of “At Large Structures” (ALSes), which form the base component part of the ICANN structure. The change is also designed to improve transparency of ALS application reviews and approvals.

You can find more information on the exact change in the official announcement for this public comment period.
