A question for the Board for the ALAC- Board interaction ICANN69...

.... a single topic instead of the traditional three that we usually never
got through.

Something deep and meaningful...any ideas?

               Dear Constituency and Stakeholder Groups Chairs,

*Please reply no later than Monday **5 October 2020*

While 2020 has proven challenging and likely very different from what we
were all expecting when we last saw each other, almost a year ago in
Montreal, the Board and I keep being impressed and grateful for your
continued dedication to ICANN’s mission.

The Board still values its dialogue with your Groups and is very much
looking forward to engaging with you during our *2**2nd and first ever
virtual AGM* *that will take place between **13-22 October 2020*.

As you keep working on the format for ICANN69, we would like to start
preparing for the Community Dialogue with the Board.

As per what we did in Montreal and virtually for ICANN67, instead of sending up
to three questions to the Board, we would like to offer you the alternative
option of choosing a single topic and having an open discussion with the
Board on that topic.

We will also publish the list of questions or topics received with the
entire Community using the Policy digest as it was a successful tool for
improving transparency and allow the groups to deepen their own
understanding of their peers’ point of views on different issues.

As for time allocation, per what we did previously, we propose to allocate
half of our time together to answer your questions or discuss your single
topic and the other half to address the Board’s topic.

In preparation for our meetings, the Board has chosen the following topic
to have an open discussion with you:

   - Enhancing the effectiveness of the Multistakeholder model: key issues
   and opportunities for acceleration. In your preparation you may want to
   consider the results of the most recent public consultation, and work that
   has progressed with dependencies to enhancing the effectiveness of the MSM
   (such as the ATRT3 report and work on prioritization and budgeting).

We would be very grateful if you could send to Board Operations (
board-ops-team at icann.org)  your single topic or the  list of questions, in
order of priority, no later than *Monday 5 October 2020 or sooner. *

For information,  we are not changing the current total time allotted per

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
