http://www.arin.net/library/minutes/bot/bot04082002.html Release of Portion of Escrow Funds to ICANN Scott Bradner motioned that the ARIN Board of Trustees authorize the President to release $243,020.00 to ICANN. This represents 50% of the funds that ARIN is holding in escrow pending the execution of a contract between the RIRs and ICANN. This was seconded by Scott Marcus. The Chair called for vote in which the motion passed unanimously. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Boyan Krosnov" <bkrosnov at lirex.bg> To: "Jim Fleming" <JimFleming at Ameritech.Net> Cc: "Local IR Working Group" <lir-wg at ripe.net> Sent: Monday, November 25, 2002 10:28 AM Subject: RE: [lir-wg] Re: 50% increase in RIPE fees ?
