Rationale and Background
The preliminary list includes the following issues identified at the NARALO GA (break out sessions) held in New Orleans in April 2017: In addition NARALO did a ALS Expertise Survey of all the ALS's and they self identified topics of interest. A total of 161 names were identified associated with 34 ICANN topics. Interesting that some of the hot topics didn't match the 34 ICANN topics but the majority do.
Linking Hot Topics to the ICANN Strategic Plan
The Strategic Plan: articulates ICANN's new Vision; restates ICANN's founding Mission; and sets forth five Strategic Objectives and sixteen Strategic Goals, each with Key Success Factors (Outcomes), and Strategic Risks.
