The invitaion to the general assembly meeting is still accessible on the web server: http://www.ripe.net/ripencc/about/gm/gm2002/gm-announce2002.html It lists all the items on the agenda, and those topics (with a verbatim resolution for decision included) for which a vote was required. And it included the link to the Articles of the Association. In particular Article 15 - General Meeting is relevant there, in that it states, i.a., <included here to provide context> "The executive board shall send the verbatim text of the resolutions proposed by the said members immediately to all members of the association." </included ...> "The general meeting may only resolve with respect to resolutions concerning subjects for which the verbatim text of the related resolutions has been sent to the members in accordance with the above." This provision _in particular_ is meant to support proxy voting, by clearly documenting the issues at hand and the resolutions put in front of the members to decide. So it _is_ easy to be represented by proxy. Reality check, please! And, no, I _don't_ like increased fees, but I _do_ understand that they are necessary for the moment. Regards, Wilfried.
