Dear ALAC,

In Helsinki, the Board will meet to discuss the outlook for the next round
of the new gTLD Program.  To support our discussions, we would like to be
informed by stakeholder views.
I have been requested to obtain the view of the ALAC.  Would it be possible
for the ALAC to provide a snapshot of its views on this topic in one
slide?  Please note that this information and presentation format would be
applied to each stakeholder group's views.

Some questions to guide you:
1. Initiation of next round - do you think a date should be identified so
that ICANN has a target to work towards?
2. Requirements for round initiation - what do you think should be in place
before the next round is initiated?
3. Improvements - what elements of the new gTLD program should be improved
for next round?
4. Other aspects that are of concern to the ALAC?

For the Board to have a chance to review the slide before its discussion,
it would be good to receive the slide by 23 June 2016 latest.

I do understand that this is short notice.  If you do not have sufficient
time to develop a formal position, informal input would be sufficient at
this time and it would be appreciated.
The Board is likely to revisit the topic again during its workshop in
September.  There is thus another chance to provide a more extensive view,
but for now the Board would just like to have a sense from the community on
the topic to guide its early deliberations.

Thank you in advance and apologies for the short notice.

Best regards,


on behalf of the ICANN Board
