 Dear Holly , colleagues

 Yesterday in our LACRALO call one issue was raised that I believe needs further consideration on process.
 Here the facts:
Outreach group in ALAC has multiple colleagues , like me, participating and I believe it is going very well. We have defined work, tasks to each member etc.
 The working party is open to any one and lots of regional members join the group.
 Lacralo, by other side, had since some time an effective effort regarding outreach, with quite a success outcome and has several members working on this issue.
Some members already involved with LACRALO outreach had not join the ALAC Outreach  WP since they  were already involved in such activities with good results.
 Alerted about what was going on inside ALAC we all, from the region, suggested similar issues to the whole Outreach WP to share ideas from and to other Ralos.
Till this point it looks quite interesting.

 However, the chair of LACRALO raised a point that makes sense:
LACRALO has a process to approve and let all members to contribute and decide regarding any  activity involving their members, and outreach  activities  is not different.
With several members – self named - to be  involved with tasks under Outreach WP from ALAC, the whole process of who will do what inside the Ralo, where and when and under which circumstances has not being followed and the result will be lack of transparency for LACRALO community and we may have  persons doing similar task, resulting in wasting of time and money.
This may be relevant or not for other Ralos related to outreach, depending upon how focused they are in this particular activity. However, similar situation may happen with other  ALAC x RALO parties.

My suggestion to be consider under the review process could be :
Before open to other no ALAC members,  chair of any ALAC WP that will consider open membership, shall talk with all Ralos chairs to start a process inside the Ralos, to select who will participate in the ALAC WP and which are the points that are relevant for such community to take to the ALAC WP ,  deciding inside the ralo.
With the names supported by the community members will be aligned with internal activities and the results will be stronger and fast.
 Would love to hear from your thoughts.
