Dear Randy and all,The APNIC EC recognises a need for further discussion among the APNIC membership about decision making mechanisms for matters outside of the address policy process, for instance regarding APNIC's own organisational structures and processes.
Therefore the EC has decided to convene a BoF session during APNIC 30, as described briefly below. We hope that this will provide a useful opportunity for discussion of these matters.
Thanks and regards, Paul Wilson for the APNIC EC. === BOF: APNIC Membership Decision Processes Wednesday 25 August This BoF is organised for those interested in APNIC Membership decision making processes, and ongoing development of those processes to suit APNIC Members' needs. The session will be of most interest to APNIC Members but is open to all. === --On 20 July 2010 1:36:50 PM +0600 Randy Bush <randy at psg dot com> wrote:
The following four proposals (also attached) were received by the Policy SIG Chairs: a. Fixing a Maximum Period of Two Terms for an EC by Shashi Parkash Jerath b. Proposal for Government Advisory Committee (GAC) for APNIC by Rajesh Chharia c. Proposal for the Constitution of an Independent Electoral Body to conduct APNIC Elections By CVS.SURI d. Proposal for equal voting rights for all Members in APNIC By Pavan Duggal The Chairs are sorry to report that we have decided that these proposals fall well outside of the scope of the Policy SIG, which is described rather simply as follows: <http://www.apnic.net/policy-sig> The charter of the Policy SIG is to develop policies and procedures which relate to the management and use of Internet address resources by APNIC, NIRs, and ISPs within the Asia Pacific region. Instead, we (having no real authority) have suggested that the authors of these proposals take such issues to the AGM or the Executive Council. randy, Terrence, and Ching-Heng
