I. Welcome/Intro

- Rob announced that he was planning on resigning as RIPE Chair and appointed Hans Petter Holen as Deputy Chair.

II. Terms of WG Chairs/Improvements to the PDP and Policy Documentation

- Established taskforce with Brian Nisbet as the coordinator and Ondrej Filip, Nick Hilliard and Hans Petter Holen as members.

- The task-force should look at the final document, give it some editing as needed, and have the RIPE Chair publish it on the ripe-list with an explanation and a deadline of one month.

III. Posting Agenda and Minutes of WG Chair Meetings

- The agenda from the WG Chair meetings will be published ahead of the meeting.

- Minutes from the meeting will be posted after review of the WG Chairs.

IV. Code of Conduct at RIPE Meetings

- Action on the RIPE NCC Communications Department to come up with a list of expectations that are framed in the positive rather than a list of rules.

V. Governance Review of RIPE (Statement of Work)

- The proposal for a review of RIPE governance was suspended.

VI. RIPE 68 Meeting Plan

- A draft schedule will be based on the meeting plan for RIPE 67.

- The suggestion from the RIPE NCC was to plan the Interconnection BoF in one vacated EIX slot along with the new BCOP task force in the other.

VII. Administrative/Technical Overview of RIPE 67

- On meeting fees: the guiding principle is that a RIPE Meeting is not a conference. To keep the registration free as low as possible, everyone should pay their fair share. For exceptions, people can talk to the RIPE Chair who will consult with the relevant WG Chair and refer them to Axel.

- Merely being a speaker is not grounds for a waiver of the meeting fee.

VIII. AOB

- Address Policy WG should deal with the proposal from Jan Zorz on language in policy proposals.

- The Collective applauded Rob heavily for his service as RIPE Chair.

- Rob thanked the Collective but said he was not gone yet.
