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.
