The At-Large Consolidated Policy Working Group (CPWG) is the committee within the At-Large that facilitates the bottom-up development of the positions held by the At-Large. After determining there is a unique individual end-user perspective on a particular issue, the CPWG develops initial talking points which are then vetted by the Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs), who provide their input from the ground, based on their outreach to end users in the region. Once a position is developed by the CPWG, and ratified by the ALAC, that position is evangelized through all available channels within the ICANN community, incuding GNSO PDP Work Group particiaption, cross community Work Group participation, review team participation, public comment and, in some rare cases, official "Advice" to the board. The CPWG is currently co-chaired by Jonathan Zuck and Olivier Crepin-Leblond.
