Dear O&E members, At-Large Staff

With today being the deadline for budget proposals to be submitted to the
At-Large Finance and Budget Subcommittee (FBSC), please find attached
a budget proposal from the O&E co-chairs for the FBSC's consideration
- to allow access by RALOs for funding of local engagement activities.

Opportunities exist for At-Large members to do local outreach and
engagement about ICANN and ICANN policy related issues. The  local
activities  can include  local presentations, brown bag lunch topics,
local  business persons presentations ie. Kiwanais, Rotary,
Professional Women’s University Groups, Chamber of Commerce and more.
These local groups at the grassroots are looking for professional
speakers on a weekly basis and rely on local experts on various
topics. They open up opportunities for speaking engagements at minimum

We propose that each of the RALO’s have access up to $2,000 each for
targeted local discretionary funds to permit the local travel,
luncheons, displays, graphic promotional Facebook/Twitter graphics and

For complete transparency and proper oversight, all RALO budget
requests will require review and approval from the ALAC via the
Finance and Budget Subcommittee (FBSC) and the Outreach and Engagement
SC. Any approved RALO request will require detailed reporting to the
ALAC on how the funds allocated were spent and objectives achieved.
Local GSE approval could also be sought for additional oversight.

This proposal will be discussed on Monday's call where amendments can
be suggested.

Kind Regards,

Dev Anand Teelucksingh
Outreach and Engagement SC chair
