1. Welcome and Agenda

All members of the RIPE NCC Executive Board (the Board) were present apart from Remco van Mook, who sent his apologies. The Chairman of the Board opened the meeting at 10:00 and welcomed everyone.

2. Selection of volunteers for the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund (CPF) Selection Committee

On 5 February 2021, a call for RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund Selection Committee members was issued.
This call resulted in 19 applications from a diverse group of candidates. The Board was asked to select two candidates to serve on the CPF Selection Committee.

The Executive Board appreciated the interest and formed a subgroup of four members to discuss the applications. The subgroup consisted of Maria Häll, Remco van Mook, Falk von Bornstaedt and Raymond Jetten.

After discussions, the subgroup proposed the following candidates, bearing in mind sufficient seniority and diversity in background: Samaneh Tajalizadehkhoob and Flavio Luciani.

The proposed candidates were brought forward during the meeting and the Board unanimously agreed with the selection. The Board expressed its appreciation to all candidates who sent in their applications.

Resolution EB#143-R-01:
The RIPE NCC Executive Board appoints Samaneh Tajalizadehkhoob and Flavio Luciani to the available seats on the Community Project Fund Selection Committee.

The RIPE NCC Executive Board unanimously adopted the resolution.

The Chairman closed the formal part of the meeting at 10:15 and continued discussions on preparations for RIPE 82.
