I think that would be an excellent idea. -hph ----- Original Message ----- From: "Philip Smith" <pfs at cisco.com> To: <lir-wg at ripe.net> Cc: "Axel Pawlik" <axel.pawlik at ripe.net> Sent: Tuesday, November 26, 2002 12:33 PM Subject: Re: [lir-wg] ref: the 50% increase discussion: reality check, pls. | 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.
