Hello All,

See note from Paul Twomey below.

I proposed we schedule a GNSO Council meeting for Thursday 6 October
2005 to discuss the issues paper which will be available next week.   We
can then respond back to Paul by 15 October 2005.

Dear Bruce

We are now in the middle of the ICANN strategic planning process for the
2006-2009 plan.  In Luxembourg, the process was outlined, and a copy of
that outline is attached.

At present we are waiting for the response from the final SO/AC and hope
to have the issues paper available next week.  This puts us a little
behind schedule, but not hopelessly so.  

The next step is to have the SOs, ACs and other members of the community
respond to the issues paper.  We will be asking for two elements in
those responses.  

The first element will be an indication of whether the issues that have
been identified in the issues paper are the correct issues.  The issues
paper is based on the input that was received from the consultation
process.  There will undoubtedly be places where the perspectives of
members of the GNSO differ from some of the views of other members of
the community.  What we are looking for is a validation that the major
issues have been covered and that the views of the GNSO are represented,
not that you agree with everything that everybody said. 
Based on those issues, we would like the GNSO to identify what it
believes the strategic priorities for ICANN should be, and, if possible,
how ICANN should go about addressing those priorities. If the priorities
really are to be priorities, there should be no more than five of them. 
Although it is a tight deadline, we would like to have those responses
by 15 October.
As mentioned in Luxembourg, we would then like to convene a meeting of
the Chairs of the SOs and ACs (or their representatives) to agree on a
common set of priorities.  The arrangements for this meeting are still
being finalised and we will let you know the details as soon as

Once these key strategic priorities have been formulated, they will be
circulated for comment.  Based on the feedback received, a draft
strategic plan will be prepared for distribution in November.  Further
consultation will take place at the Vancouver meeting, with a view to
having the Board approve a final version of the plan in January.

Thank you for your assistance in the planning process.
