ALAC Votes to endorse JAS Charter extension

At the ALAC monthly meeting, the group endorsed extending the Charter of the "Joint SO/AC Working group on support for new gTLD applicants".

The endorsement notes:  "The Working group is asked to present a schedule for the work that allows for completion in time for the opening of the application round, currently scheduled for Q2 2011."

Recent Board resolutions on the topic:

RESOLVED (2010.09.25.03), any direct financial support for applicant fees must come from sources outside of ICANN.

RESOLVED (2010.10.28.22), the Board further stresses that any needy applicant support program must have a sustainable funding model that may be independent of ICANN and can be implemented transparently, and effectively to the benefit of the global Internet community.
