Dear BC membersIn our Secretariat's absence, I am forwarding the News Alert
announcing the ICANN survey regarding ICANN's Globalization Survey.
I am asked as a Chair of the BC to encourage you to take the survey.
This is an ICANN survey. I did take the survey, so that I can advise you of the
time commitment, which is at least 20 min. It was not pre-reviewed with the
leadership of the organization. It allows you to 'skip' certain questions.
Should you need more information on a particular topic, you might decide to
skip questions. or show that in the optional open comment box.
If you want to discuss the overall purpose of the survey, feel free to contact
me. However, each individual respondent is asked to respond as an individual,
so I will not be discussing responses. Merely trying to help to understand the
purpose of the survey.
