Dear colleagues,

please be so kind to find the announcement below for the ICANN
fellowship for Johannesburg.

I am not happy. I am not happy at all since you will notice two things:

1. the Helsinki meeting taking place during MidSummer, what was going to
be originally a Policy + Outreach meeting, which is what meeting B was
supposed to be, became a Policy only meeting, as there was nobody to do
outreach to. Remember that Meeting B needing to happen on continents
that did not have the infrastructure and capacity to host an A or C
meeting, and was supposed to have a significant outreach component part.
The Jo'burg meeting is now set to be a "policy only" meeting!!!

2. As a result, we are faced with being on a continent that requires the
most outreach and engagement, but are told that as this is a "policy
forum", applications are restricted to only Fellowship Program Alumni. I
thought that completely defeats the purpose of a Meeting B.

What is going on? I think that the ALAC should seek a formal response
from the ICANN Board about this.

      The Fellowship Program

The ICANN Fellowship Program[icann.org]
seeks out those who are interested in, or already engaged in, the
various components of ICANN's work in policy building, the operation of
the Domain Name System and the security and stability of the global
Internet. The goal of the Program is to help create a broader base of
knowledgeable constituents to engage in the ICANN multistakeholder
process and become the new voice of experience in their regions and on
the global stage.

Since its creation in 2007, the Fellowship Program has built a strong
group of individuals who are actively participating in all of the ICANN
communities as well as various Internet governance entities within the
Internet ecosystem. Their engagement ranges from writing articles and
blogs, providing online or in-person public comment in regard to bottom
up policy building, engaging in Internet conferences and panel
discussions, lifting a pen in working groups, mentoring newcomers,
assisting our regional leaders and becoming leaders themselves.
