Thanks Dev, Vanda and Beran
In MEA there have been a list of engagement list drawn sometime ago on
events happening in the region. You may need to visit Wiki to add some more
and it all depends on how ready the regional orgs are to support and
collaborate. In the past there seem to be lull in the acceptance of ICANN
support for experts to attend some of these regional meetings to create,
may be it needs review but definitely needed by ALSes if we must.

By the way has anyone thought about also holding media training sessions,
it could go a long way in supporting the work of our ALSes in our various

In addition for those ALSes who may not have access to email or telephones,
I am sure there is a way of reaching them or the second contact
(alternate). Staff could also be mandated to reach out to them as we had
discussed and advocated previously a survey covering their challenges of
ALSes, could be very helpful.
