Draft Activity Plan and Budget 2024 Feedback


Our Activity Plan and Budget sets out our plans for 2024 along with the associated costs. It has now been published in draft form and the consultation has opened to hear your views on our activities and where the money is spent. 

If you want to have a say on what the RIPE NCC does and where its expenses are, being involved in this consultation and sharing your feedback is the best way to do it. The draft will then be discussed at the RIPE NCC General Meeting in November before changes are made and a final version is published in December. 

The Draft Activity Plan and Budget 2024 has now been published.

RIPE NCC Survey 2023

The report on the RIPE NCC Survey 2023 is also now available. The results of the survey gave us an excellent overview of what our membership thinks about important issues, and have informed and shaped the activity plan.

How to get involved

The easiest way to comment on the activity plan is through the members-discuss mailing list.

We also held an Open House for members to ask questions and discuss our plans and budget with RIPE NCC staff and members of the Executive Board. The session offered an invaluable opportunity to engage directly with the RIPE NCC and learn about our preliminary strategic and operational plans for the upcoming year. 

The document will then be discussed at the General Meeting (GM) alongside RIPE 87 on 29 November 2023. Registration for the GM is now open.

The Executive Board will consider all feedback from the membership on our budget and activities before publishing the final version in December 2023.
