I think we are going to settle on the topics below and plan to communicate
these back to Fadi such that he has time to adequately prepare for our
meeting on Sun 14th.


1.       The recent re-organisation and structuring of ICANN’s operations
What is this and how does it impact and affect the GNSO?

2.       The recently launched strategic planning process
How does it impact / affect the GNSO and how might the GNSO be involved and
influence the outcomes?


Any other final comments / questions?

I do too.  That looks like a good use of the time.

We are scheduled to have a ½ hour session with Fadi Chehade on Sunday 14
July from 09h30 – 10h00.


This is separate from and in addition to our session with the ICANN board so
is an opportunity for the Council to focus on issues relevant to our work
and specific to Fadi in his capacity as CEO.


I talked with Fadi yesterday and we talked about a couple of significant
initiatives underway, both typically led by a CEO.  The first is his
on-going design and reorganisation of ICANN and the second is his leadership
of the ICANN strategic plan.


My opinion is that these are two significant initiatives that it would be
helpful to understand, know more about and have the opportunity to question
Fadi directly on. 

He is likely to bring Akram Atalla with him to the meeting.


Therefore two questions:


1.       Do you agree that the Council could usefully engage with Fadi on:

a.       Organisation of ICANN ?
(How does this impact and affect the GNSO?)

b.      Strategic planning for ICANN?
(How does this impact and affect the GNSO and how should we be involved?)

2.       Within the constraints of a short time, are there other topics we
could usefully discuss with Fadi?
(other than what we will discuss with the board as a whole)


Thank-you in advance for your input.
