          <p>Dear Members, </p>
          <p><br>
          </p>
          <p>As many of you know, ITU is hosting the World
            Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (WTSA) on 25
            October to 3 November 2016 in Tunisia. As a Sector Member of
            the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T),
            ISOC will be participating at WTSA-16. In preparation for
            WTSA, ISOC has put together a background paper to provide
            our community with an outline of key objectives and key
            issues to be addressed at WTSA 2016. We invite you to read
            the paper which is available here:</p>
