Thank you.

In this call, we will be reviewing each of the RALO budget request
templates linked from:

The review will include:
- checking if the request is clear for ICANN finance to understand
- checking if the request describes the scope of the activity proposed,
how it relates to the current Strategic Plan, and how the funds are to
be implemented.
- allocating a priority to the request by consensus, taking the above
findings and the needs of the region into account.

It is therefore really important that all members of the ALAC Finance &
Budget Sub-committee read all of the requests in advance, in order to be
prepared to discuss them during the call. There are not that many of
them, but we need to make sure we use our calling time efficiently.

In preparation for this, I will also email you a copy of a "roadmap" of
future ICANN meetings & our proposed future requests, detailing the
proposed schedule of GAs and At-Large Summit since our last Summit.
ICANN Finance has asked for such a document to be produced, and I'll
therefore send you a copy of a first draft which we'll have to fill in.
A clear roadmap will really help in (1) setting up a written track
record of our requests, as seen from a macro-level, (2) providing ICANN
finance with our vision of GAs & a future Summit and (3) bringing some
context in our minds and for RALOs, in how financial requests fit in the
bigger picture development of At-Large.

I look forward to speaking to you all tomorrow.

Kind regards,
