Dear friends, welcome to 2017!

Well, not a surprise -  I faced some difficulties in Helsinki (saved by a local friend) since I normally do outreach for DNS WOMEN event and in Helsinki staff was even forbidden to help me to set up a place (I get sponsorship, but staff helps with contacts, local negotiation etc., since they will be there weeks before the meeting) so forget about outreach… Any way we did it and had members form local women association, universities, despite the fact was traditional summer holidays.
 I do not expect nothing better from ICANN related to outreach.  Fellowship was a shame!!! For what do we need those former members in Africa, without nobody to coach coming from the region?? For me, just waste of money.
I believe the Outreach Committee could send a proposal, urgently, to open Fellowship to regional fellows and get 2-3 former members, preferably from Africa itself, to not detract the Program itself.
 My 0.002 cents..

..so, there's a pattern emerging.  Hmmm, what could that be about, I ask?

The outreach component seems to be squeezed into smaller and smaller vessels.  There is the perennial complaint - from the contracted parties - that it costs too much and, afterall, they're the ones who fund that sucker and they don't need no outreach.  ICANN - the corporation - has always expected others to fund outreach on its behalf. All you need do is look at ALS in the context of the MOU and see how it is articulated.  Comes the latest ALAC Review which clearly bemoans the outcomes of outreach.

Go figure.

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]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_fellowshipprogram&d=DgMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=mrDeztziKLa7gZqGADzxcnHA3QXmXYsnChWYBR4NElI&m=dICpJz2iYl1uhdUBnFDmHR8Hl9duK6DvL0VW5WYJcgI&s=zH3eh_DPLo0IpWBhJdmN43sScWeWihr9UukgghZuFME&e=> 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.
