I started with the draft agenda: http://www.ripe.net/lir-services/ncc/gm/november-2011/draft-agenda Example extract: >6. Draft RIPE NCC Budget 2012 > >The RIPE NCC Executive Board welcomes any input about the Draft RIPE NCC >Budget 2012 prior to and during the General Meeting November 2011. I was glad to see that the EB welcomes input, but it didn't say "how" to provide that input. So I Googled and found the EB page at: http://www.ripe.net/lir-services/ncc/executive-board I didn't find any indidivual emails listed there but did see that it lists the way to contact the EB is via email to Sabine at sam at ripe.net. So I did just that 5 days and sent the following email: >Dear RIPE NCC Executive, > >Why is the budget not being voted upon? Where can an open discussion be >carried to discuss why a 9% budget increase is needed, when everyone is >cutting their budgets 10%? > >Regards, >Hank Nussbacher >il.iucc I still await a response. Perhaps the EB needs to examine itself as to why contacting the 5 members is made so difficult.
