Thanks Dev
You are very correct
We need to reword then and be specific on if it's closed meeting or not.

> One suggestion for the O&E to fix is the issue of how our At-Large/ALAC
> meetings are listed in the schedule at ICANN F2F meetings.
> Consider ICANN61. There is a session at
> https://61.schedule.icann.org/meetings/647710 titled "ALAC and Regional
> Leaders Working Session Part 1"
> This is the descriptive text that newcomers, fellows will see
> "The Members of the ALAC and the Regional Leadership will discuss policy
> and process issues of importance to them. These sessions will also include
> presentations by senior staff."
> Why should any newcomers, ICANN fellows, nextgen care to attend this ?
> The description says nothing what the ALAC is, only says the ALAC will
> discuss stuff important to them, implying its like a closed meeting and
> we're not talking anything of importance to newcomers to attend.
> So we should work to change this descriptive text.
> Also, the title of our sessions "ALAC and Regional Leaders Working Session
> Part 1", Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, etc etc.
> I know its hard to finalize agendas in a timely manner, but can we come up
> with better descriptive text for these names? We tend (or should) group
> these Working Sessions under a particular theme or subject - Security, new
> gTLD policy, Finance for example and we should therefore have the subject
> or theme in the title of the sessions.
> Also, instead of "ALAC and Regional Leaders" which again gives a "if
> you're not a ALAC or Regional Leader, you are NOT welcome" vibe, so lets
> make it more inviting...perhaps "At-Large Community (ALAC)"
> This may seem tedious, but I think it would have huge benefit to At-Large.
> Once created however, we can use the improved description and titles going
> forward for future ICANN F2F meetings.
