FWIW, I think "aid, assist, cooperate, co-sponsor and otherwise engage in
concerted action with private, educational and governmental organizations
and associations on all issues and matters concerning the use of computers
and computer software" would include "strategic issues".

Being confident in your ability to pay bills, host servers and do
day-to-day operations even in the absence of external threats is a far
more important strategic issue though :)
