Government Review Of .AU – Meetup

The Department of Communications and the Arts (DoCA) is hosting meetings in December 2017 to discuss the management framework of Australia’s .au domain.

Their review commenced last month (into the management of the .au domain) to ensure it remains fit for purpose in meeting the needs of Australia’s online community.

DoCA are holding two sessions on Thursday 14 December at the Australian Communications and Media Authority headquarters in Melbourne at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

Interested parties are encouraged to attend these meetings and/or provide a written submission to the review. More information here.

The Department is committed to stakeholder engagement on internet governance, these are some of the issue that will be covered:

  • the most appropriate framework for the management of the .au top level domain
  • how to ensure that Government and community expectations inform auDA’s operation and decision-making, and
  • mitigation strategies to address future risks to the security and stability of .au.

Have Your Say

Whether or not you’ve done a written submission, this is the perfect opportunity to attend a “Town Hall style meeting” where you can express your views – and ask questions.

The Government wants to hear from as many people as possible – so please, if you’re in Melbourne, make the effort to go along to one of these.

    How about other capital cities if they take it seriously enough?

    They have the budget and resources for each capital city and sooner rather than later as the clock is ticking for the cut off.

    Without Ned and Domainer.com.au people never get this information..

      I think this should at least go to Sydney and Brisbane as well.

      I’d say the government need to do everything they can to promote these events because even the people who follow AUDA pretty carefully probably aren’t very aware of it and the time frame is now very tight. Hopefully Ned’s blog post will help get “bums on seats” at this event and I think we all need to do what we can to “spread the word”.

      The key thing about this “live forum” is that its gives people a chance of voice there opinion who have legitimate grievances over the running of .AU but probably aren’t able to answer the questions (which are quite academic), so I applaud the Government for organising it.

    Managing the .au is for ALL Australians. In this age of rapid technological advances/changes, I think it’s pretty darn obvious to make the effort to hear many different Australians voice their opinions on this growing important infrastructure.
