Dear members, The draft agenda for the RIPE NCC General Meeting, which takes place in Dublin at the Burlington Hotel on 15 May, is now posted: http://www.ripe.net/lir-services/ncc/gm/may-2013/agenda There are three resolutions to be voted on by the membership: - Adoption of the RIPE NCC 2012 Audited Financial Report - Discharge of the Executive Board - Adoption of the RIPE NCC Charging Scheme 2014 The RIPE NCC Charging Scheme has previously been presented to the membership for voting in the second GM of the year.
