[lir-wg] ref: the 50% increase discussion: reality check, pls.
Tue Nov 26 12:33:58 CET 2002
Just a thought... Might it not be easier to hold the RIPE NCC annual general meeting during the RIPE conference week, either January, April, or September. APNIC and ARIN do this, and it saves their membership having to make a second trip for a half day or one day meeting. At least that way more LIRs than those who currently can attend the General Meeting will be able to participate, and maybe give more useful feedback to the discussions. Especially now with the Internet economy somewhat depressed and travel pretty hard to justify for most folks. ? philip -- At 21:33 25/11/2002 +0100, Wilfried Woeber, UniVie/ACOnet wrote: > 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.
