Big Changes At auDA

Whilst there has been no official announcement from anyone at auDA, three of the previous Directors are no longer in “office”. I discovered this when I was looking at the auDA website today.

Speaking as a member, I find it extremely poor that no official communication has yet been made.

These are the Directors that have recently either resigned; “retired” or “been retired”:

  • Julie Hammer (Independent Director) served between 12/02/2007 – 17/08/2016
  • Graham McDonald (Independent Director) served between 18/02/2008 – 20/06/2016
  • Miguel Wood (Demand Class Director) served very briefly between 30/11/2015 – 08/08/2016

Miguel was only elected in November, so this comes as a shock to me. His position will need to be filled; along with the two Demand Class Director positions which are due at the AGM later this year. Three Demand Class vacancies in total!

I imagine auDA won’t hold a separate “by-election” for Miguel’s position, though I may be wrong!

Interesting times at auDA – almost as good as “Game of Thrones”. 😉

    There are others who should be resigning.

          99.99% of people will agree with you on that! It is time they both moved on. Melbourne IT has stacked things for too long and their recent yes only vote campaign is the last nail in the coffin for people to listen or trust them in many people’s opinion.


          The new CEO needs to clear it up and advise them their services are no longer needed… or wanted… now anyone else from their related companies.

    There are many perfectly valid reasons for directors to come and go, but as you mentioned Ned, the lack of communication is very disappointing.

    The farce continues.


    The CEO gets punted without explanation and now these three directors.


    The lack of transparency and communication is beyond a joke.
