Session description:

If you want to get engaged with ICANN and join its communities of noncommercial users or end users, we have arranged a session for you that will make it easier to navigate the ICANN maze. This session will give you enough information about ICANN from the perspective of two groups: Noncommercial Users Constituency and At-Large. You will see how different NCUC and RALOs are and how closely we work together. You also get a good grasp of what topics are going to be discussed during ICANN 60. The session can provide you with   a pathway to getting more engaged with ICANN and policymaking.
