Dear colleagues,

On behalf of our Executive Board, I invite you to register for the RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) October 2016.

The GM will take place from 26-28 October 2016 in the Meliá Castilla Hotel in Madrid, Spain, adjacent to the RIPE 73 Meeting.

You can register now via the LIR Portal:

The GM is where RIPE NCC members can discuss the operations and activities of the RIPE NCC. At the upcoming GM, RIPE NCC members will discuss, among other topics:
- The Draft RIPE NCC Activity Plan and Budget 2017
- Redistribution of the RIPE NCC surplus/deficit to the membership (to be voted on)
- Amendments to the RIPE NCC Conflict Arbitration Procedure (to be voted on)
- Reports from the RIPE NCC Executive Board and RIPE NCC Management

Members are encouraged to attend either in person at the Meliá Castilla Hotel or remotely via the GM webstream.

All relevant documents will be posted and announced to the membership by 28 September 2016.

All organisations that have been members of the RIPE NCC for longer than six months will receive an invitation to vote electronically. Registration for electronic voting will remain open until 17:00 UTC+1 on the day of the GM, 26 October 2016.

All information on how to participate, as well as the proxy voting form, is available at:
