Proposed membership in At-Large Constituency (ALC) of ICANN
Luc Flaubert, of ISOC-Quebec recently posted an invitation for ISOC chapters to become members of the At-large constituency (ALC) of ICANN. We are already members of the Noncommercial Users Constituency (NCUC).
Is there any conflict in being members of both constituencies?
Would it make us more or less effective in terms of influence? We haven't done much with ICANN so far as an organization, but we should try to in the future -- it's an essential part of the discussion of Internet governance issues.
The ALC has not been very influential in the past in affecting ICANN policies.
