In preparation for our GA in Abu Dhabi.. I have asked a group of fellows to
look at a couple of sections from the Fellows survey and look at what
strategies APRALO could use to improve the result of "How engaged do
Fellows feel with their RALOs" and "Do they feel acknowledged and
encouraged by their RALOs". The group will bring back some recommendations
to the GA that we as a RALO can work together on.

Bottom-up.. ☺

The only reason we are working on these two areas is that (apart from the
gender question) they were the only RALO related questions asked in  the
survey. The others were generic.. But these are good starter questions for
our APRALO fellows from over a couple of years to get their teeth into.

This activity will hopefully show that working together to make changes
within our RALO that will impact them as members, is not dissimilar to
being a member if an At-Large or ICANN working group and contributing to
change across At-Large or ICANN on issues that will impact them as

Well, thats the theory.. ☺ We will see how it goes...
