Dear  Anivar and  Hrishikesh,

ICANN's At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) is pleased to inform you
that Swathanthra
Malayalam Computing has been certified as an At-Large Structure (ALS).  The
ALAC greatly appreciates your group's interest in involving individual
users in APRALO and ICANN and looks forward to working with you and your

The ALAC is eager to promote a productive working relationship between your
organization, other ALSes, and the ALAC (and ICANN in general), and your
input on how we can make this a success would be greatly appreciated.

It¹s very important to keep the members of your organization informed
(about significant news from ICANN and information on ICANN
policy-development efforts) and engaged in activities of interest. Here are
a few of the tools members of At-Large find useful:

The At-Large wiki space is where you can find most of the relevant

The At-Large introductory page
<https://community.icann.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=2265510> help you
navigate through the wiki contents. This is where you can find the latest
announcements, and subscribe to the At-Large Google calendar
<https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/Calendar> at the bottom of the
page. This will ensure you never miss a meeting!

>From any chosen page in the At-Large wiki, you can find your bearings
easily by navigating via the purple box at the top left hand corner of the
page. It is very convenient to be able to consult the latest At-Large
Policy Development Activity <https://community.icann.org/x/bwFO> , find out
more about the Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs)
and about At-Large Working Groups
<https://community.icann.org/display/atlarge/At-Large+Working+Groups> .  For
the most up to date information about At-Large meetings during ICANN Public
meetings,  it is worth bookmarking this wiki page

*Regional wiki webpages* also have been created to distribute information
(including in local languages) on activities, events and issues of
particular interest to people in each region. These are maintained by the
community. They are:

African Region: http://www.afralo.org

Asia/Australia/Pacific Region: http://www.apralo.org

European Region: http://www.euralo.org

Latin America/Caribbean Region:  http://www.lacralo.org

North American Region: http://www.naralo.org

*At-Large Mailing Lists.* There are many At-Large email lists, for each
region, you can sign up to them and manage your subscriptions at:

http://atlarge-lists.icann.org/mailman/listinfo . The primary and secondary
points of contact you have identified in the application form will
automatically be added to your region's list just for accredited ALSes to
discuss regional issues and to the mailing list for Staff announcements (only
Staff can post messages to that list); you are invited to join others as
you wish.

*ALAC website*. The ALAC website <https://atlarge.icann.org/>  is a good
source for ICANN news and information of interest to individual Internet
users.  We encourage you to provide your members with a link.  The ALAC
relies on volunteers to translate information into multiple languages.
Translations of documents on the website are welcome and should be
sent to  At-Large
staff. <staff at atlarge.icann.org>

*ICANN website:* The ICANN website <https://www.icann.org/> is where all
announcements <https://www.icann.org/news>  are posted, and where you can
find practical information about ICANN Public meetings
<http://meetings.icann.org/> .

*Skype chat*: At-Large community members and staff use Skype group chats
extensively. A group chat exists for most Working Groups and RALOs. So
please don¹t hesitate to send At-Large Staff your Skype ID and we¹ll gladly
add you to the relevant chats. Please click here  <http://www.skype.com/en/>
 if you don¹t have a Skype account. It¹s free and staff are available to
help if you run into any trouble.

*Facebook*: The At-Large community has its own Facebook page
<https://www.facebook.com/icann.atlarge?fref=ts> . It¹s useful to keep up
with announcements and helpful information.

*Twitter*: Members of At-Large tweet extensively and are particularly
active during ICANN Public meetings. Follow At-Large on Twitter
<https://twitter.com/ICANNAtLarge?lang=fr%3E>* !*

We will forward the At-Large Beginners¹ guide shortly, as it is in the
process of being updated. In the meantime, please refer to the recording of
our Informal Welcome Webinar
for new ALSes  which took place in July2015. Another series of on boarding
webinars will be scheduled shortly and notification will go out to all new

We look forward to working with you and your organization's members to
advance individual Internet users' interests within ICANN.  If you have any
questions, or need additional information, please contact us at
staff at atlarge.icann.org.
