DigitalSENSE Africa join’s ICANN At Large Structure

Multiple award-winning media group, the DigitalSENSE Africa Media has been accredited as a member of the At-Large Advisory Committee of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) as an At-Large Structure (ALS), reports ITRealms.
DigitalSENSE Africa Media is the organisers of the annual Nigeria DigitalSENSE Forum Series including the Internet Governance Forum for Development (IG4D) and Nigeria Internet Protocol version Six (IPv6) Roundtable since 2009, as well as the publishers of DigitalSENSE Business News, NaijaAgroNet and ITRealms.
It could be recalled that  in 2011, DigitalSENSE Africa Media midwifed the first-ever Nigeria hosted West Africa Internet Governance Forum (WAIGF) in collaboration with the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and Free Software and Open Source Foundation for Africa (FOSSFA) even as DigitalSENSE Africa is a corporate member of the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA) and member, Local Multistakeholder Advisory Group of Nigeria Internet Governance Forum (LMAG-NIGF).
This is coming as leadership of DigitalSENSE Africa promises to continue its strides by ensuring all-inclusive enlightenment of Nigerian internet users.
A letter mail (email) entitled “Welcome to At-Large!” endorsed on behalf of the At-Large Advisory Committee by ICANN Policy Staff-led by Heidi Ullrich and including Silvia Vivanco, Ariel Liang, Gisella Gruber, Nathalie Peregrine and Terri Agnew, dated Friday, November 14, 2014 conveyed the accreditation to DigitalSENSE Africa.

According to the letter sighted by ITRealms, ALAC stated its pleasure to inform that DigitalSENSE Africa with registration number 211, has been certified as an At-Large Structure (ALS).

ITRealms gathered that the ALAC greatly appreciates “your group's interest in involving individual users in ICANN and looks forward to working with you and your colleagues.”

Also ITRealms gathered that the purpose of ALS certification is to recognize that DigitalSENSE Africa meets the necessary criteria to involve individual Internet users at the local or issue level in ICANN activities, and will support its individual members' informed participation in ICANN efforts that affect end-users.

“The ALAC is eager to promote a productive working relationship between your organization, other ALS, and the ALAC (and ICANN in general), and your input on how we can make this a success would be greatly appreciated,” part of the letter read.
Reacting, on behalf of the management of DigitalSENSE Africa (DSA) Media, the Executive Director, Operations, Nkemdilim Nweke (Mrs) expressed gratitude for the certification by members of ICANN's At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) as an At-Large Structure (ALS).

“We appreciate the trust repose in DigitalSENSE Africa by ALAC members, especially those who trusted and stood by DigitalSENSE Africa by supporting our application,” she said.

She also promised that DigitalSENSE Africa would continue to do its best in enlightening individual users and actively participate in ICANN-related processes both locally, regionally and internationally.
