Hi Alan

AfTLD is a regional organization for African TLD Registries, which is 
recognized by ICANN ccNSO as a regional organization same as CENTR, 

beside providing an African input on global ccTLD policy developments 
with ICANN ccNSO, we have lots of African local issues to focus on among 
those exchange of experience, marketing and building local internet 
presence by promoting ccTLDs. Registry automated systems and Capacity 
building/training are on top of our priorities list .

there is many policy discussed in ccNSO that directly effect African 
cc's, IANA procedures, IDNs, ICANN Regions and financial contribution to 
ICANN are some examples .
