Hi Dev and all.
Please find below my response to your initial questions as follows for further discussion:
Best of the day.
1* What would be the criterion for deciding if an ALS is not engaged in your RALO/At-Large?
I think there was some criterion set at the inception. A look at it would help in determining if they are meeting the demands in their ALS expectations.
VS – participating on emails lists, participating on inside groups ( I believe that representing ALAC in external groups has similar value) and attend at least 80% of LACRALO conference calls ( apologizing if not able)
2* Do RALOs have a list of non-engaged ALSes?
There should be a subtle research in this respect based on the expectations outlined in the application as what they engage in vis a vis current demands of ALS.
Act participation could be one of the criteria.
VS - After the aproval of formal criteria lista Ralo shall control, ( Secretary task to do so) and publish it
3* What are possible approaches to deal with non-engaged ALSes?
Nos 1 and 2 above must be taken into consideration to determine the No. 3.
VS – first call for attention of such ALS in a private email about it situation in the published list when it reach 50% of no attendance in one year time – not necessary calendar year). Reaching the 80%, for instance, inform that ALS will enter into the exclusion period ( 1 month) during this period ALS shall send clear and proved excuses to not being participating ( for instance was living in another country and now is coming back… ) if nothing happen. The ALS will be excluded.
4- Decide to pick some ALSes to focus and mentor with? What criteria do we use to pick which ones and why?
The aforesaid research on ALS non-engagement will help in fashioning if some need mentoring and in what areas, then viable members could be asked to pick those for mentoring based on know-how and regional where necessary.
VS- country shall be the first criteria, allowing personal contact if needed. Time as Als to really offer adequate couching. Time to dedicate to the ALS. But the request shall come from the non engaged ALS.
5- Do we survey those non-engaged ALSes to find out why they are not engaged? (A challenge is that they may not respond to a survey)
This question is similar to offshoot of No. 2 above. But directly YES and find out their challenges. You should not be concerned if they did not respond, our concern is to do the needful which in this case is find out via survey, period and then move on from there.
VS – could be interesting aftert reach 50% on not participating as in my response nº3
6* How can ALSes, especially newer ALSes be more engaged when they join At-Larg
We may ask them to join a sub-committee after acceptance and then plan an induction at the nearest ICANN to integrate them into the fold, especially those they could work with and receive mentorship.
This could begin with a webinar/documentary on what is ALAC and ALS, modalities of engagement.
VS – I believe we shall have a engagement for new committees where this committee shall be composed of all oldest engaged ALS ( to administrate lack of time), and can answer questions, suggest participation etc
7- Perhaps by having the sort of material, not necessarily a beginner's guide, but some form of infographcs and short videos are needed.
A good idea needs no further colouration.
VS – will help too
8. Maybe we need to look at ICANN Learn, or Glenn's ebook project to see how to convey these concepts on how ALSes can be involved. The At-Large website redesign is also looking at these concepts of how we reach persons to get involved.
The concept eventually adopted must be web-based and accessible online at all times. VS – Agree with this idea

With the discussion of the outreach strategies on the September 8 2015 call (https://community.icann.org/x/iYRYAw), we didn't have a chance to discuss on first steps for
strategies for At-Large engagement.
Its an important topic as I'm sure all RALOs have many ALSes that and I therefore want to begin discussions before our next conference call.
I've created a wiki space at
for us to comment on and get some ideas.
Some first thoughts to get the discussions about engagement going:
Some first ideas to generate discussion:
* What would be the criterion for deciding if an ALS is not engaged in your RALO/At-Large?
* Do RALOs have a list of non-engaged ALSes?
* What are possible approaches to deal with non-engaged ALSes?
- Decide to pick some ALSes to focus and mentor with? What criteria do we use to pick which ones and why?
