I am interpreting the suggestions for the two to be held together as: The RIPE NCC AGM should be held immediately before or after the RIPE Meeting, utilising the same venue and support infrastructure. and that: The existing RIPE Meeting registration fee should not include the RIPE NCC AGM. ( so if you're just attending the RIPE NCC AGM, you are not paying the RIPE Meeting registration fee. ) For people that attend both the RIPE Meeting and RIPE NCC AGM, this removes one trip per year, at the cost of a slightly longer stay in Amsterdam. For people that attend only one or the other, this does not change their flight or registration requirements. Kind regards, -- Bruce Campbell RIPE Systems/Network Engineer NCC www.ripe.net - PGP562C8B1B Operations/Security  Obviously, this would tie the given RIPE Meeting to Amsterdam.  Logistically, a long meeting is easier for the NCC to support, than multiple small meetings.
