    > 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 possible.
    > 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.
    > Regards,
    > Paul
