Dear Constituency and Stakeholder Groups Chairs,

*Please reply no later than Friday 17th February 2022*

First and though we are already well settled into 2022, let me wish you All a Very Happy New Year !

I believe that we are all hopeful that this year will see the end of the Covid-19 pandemic and allow us to finally meet face-to-face again. I can barely believe that it has been two years since the Board had to take the difficult decision to turn ICANN67 into a fully virtual meeting. We were far from imagining then that ICANN73 would still be virtual. Yet, it is and we are here, all of us, united and committed to make it successful.

At this point in time, our hope is to be able to gather in The Hague, in June, as planned. And right now The Netherlands is in a partial lock-down which makes it difficult to further preparations. Our continued aim is to organize hybrid and in-person meetings, in the best conditions, as soon as it will be possible. We will communicate on the status of those plans based on health and safety developments.

Meanwhile, we are very much looking forward to meeting with you soon and in preparation for our first meeting of 2022, ICANN73 (7-10 March), the Board and I would like to propose the following topics for discussion during our time together:

·       What are your key priorities for ICANN work in 2022, how do these priorities help achieve ICANN's common objectives as expressed in the FY 2021-2025 Strategic Plan, and how do you see Community, Board and org moving forward together on a way to achieve these?

·       If any, what suggestions would you have to enhance ICANN's effectiveness and efficiency with regards to the process of implementation after adoption of a PDP or Review recommendations?

We are now well-used to the suggestion to dedicate half of our time together to discuss this topic and half the time to discuss the topic of your choice or answer the questions you might have.

We would therefore like to invite you to submit your topic of interest and/or questions (please consider the limited time) to our Board Operations team (board-ops-team at icann.org<mailto:board-ops-team at icann.org>) no later than Friday 17 February 2022.

Your suggested questions and/or topic for discussion will be published and circulated in the Policy digest, as always, which will facilitate transparency and allow the groups to deepen their own understanding of their peers' point of views on different issues.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts, questions or topics of interest and to exchange with you constructively and virtually.

Best regards,
Maarten Botterman
Chair, ICANN Board of Directors
