5. AGM

The Board reviewed the material to be presented in the AGM meeting.

5.1 Q3 Financial Results for AGM

The Board reviewed the Q3 results, it shows no surprises, there is more
income because there are more LIR's joining. It has been difficult to
employ, but progress can be seen, esp in the RS dept. The cash flow is very
positive. There was a surplus of 1 million Euros that we did not
budget for. We need to remind members that surplus is their money
loaned to RIPE NCC

5.2 Board Nominations

The Board confirmed the nominations of Frode Greisen and Richard Nuttall.

6. Border lines between responsibilities of RIPE and RIPE NCC

The Board and RB confirmed the relationship of RIPE and RIPE NCC.
Both parties agreed that although the relationship is pretty clear
to insiders, this seems not the case for many other stakeholders. With the
growing importance of the Internet more attention should be given to
position both RIPE and RIPE NCC as clear as possible to avoid further
confusion

7. AOB-Christmas

The Board decided to attend the RIPE NCC Christmas party on the 19th
of December, and to hold a Board meeting on the same afternoon at 16.00hrs.

The Board thanked Axel and the RIPE NCC for the rapid drop in
the Registration services wait queue.
