Better late than never I suppose – the agenda for today’s auDA Board Meeting was published earlier today.
More interesting to me though was the simultaneous publication of the Board Minutes from the 14th November (see further below). Of particular note, it seems as if we have a new Independent Director and Chairman by the name of Mr Benjamin Stuart. I wonder what happened to Stuart Benjamin – did he get fired? Or name change by Deed Poll? 😉 Bottom of Page 6; and top of Page 7.
- Looks like the CEO flagged concern over the manner in which the Board went about appointing restructuring itself etc (middle Page 6). But that didn’t seem to bother the Board – bit of self-justification, and it was all over. 😉
- The AusRegistry situation concerns me – read from bottom of Page 3. When I say I am concerned, that does not relate to their efficiency as a Registry. As I’ve written before, I think they do a good job. What I’m worried about is that the auDA Board may try and get out of going out to tender this time around (as they previously committed to do). Perhaps I’m worrying about nothing though?
- According to 9.g of the Minutes, the Board is not accepting any more Membership Applications in the interim. For an organisation that is looking to broaden its membership base, that is simply ridiculous imho.
Here are the Minutes as published – I have highlighted (to me) what are the interesting bits.
