Here Are Some “Top Secret” auDA Documents!

Yesterday’s article “auDA, You Promised Members Better Communication!” was very widely read.

I reached out to a number of past auDA Directors to get their opinion about the current Board and management decision to delete Minutes; Agendas; Annual Reports; Cameron Ralph Report etc …

Without exception, these past Directors were appalled at the lack of transparency. They would never have condoned it. And before anyone tries to say that these were probably just a couple of disgruntled ex-Directors, think again. My mini-survey was conducted with far more than two – and I would put their respectability up against any current auDA Director.

Missing Documents

In my enquiries about the rationale behind this decision, one of the lines that gets trotted out is:

“Change necessitates privacy”

Oh, my goodness! So the removal of Minutes and Agendas and other material going back years and years is going to help facilitate this change? Imagine the uproar if the Government of the day decided to delete Hansard and every other record of Government decision making?

Get real auDA.

Anyway, for those that are interested, here are some “Top Secret” documents to start with:

2015-16-auDA-Annual-Report

 

Cameron-Ralph-Report-for-auDA

 

Annual-General-Meeting-2016-Minutes-1

 

14-November-2016-Board-Meeting-Minutes

 

More to follow …

    So Leonie and Michaela don’t own any domains, don’t have any small business experience like the majority of stakeholders but are women and STEM qualified. Well I guess that’s ok then. Good job. Can I get Simon to second that and unanimous approval from the other flunkies…. I mean directors.

    If all missing documents appear on this and other sites, will auDA then give up their attempts at chicanery?

      Probably not, it is the future documents that are most important. Would be a very bizarre situation if they aren’t even going to give members access to the Annual Report.

      Ha ha good joke I suspect since auDA is finally being scrutinised simply they’ll become more opaque, backroom deals will increase, as will favours for mates. Just more of the same chicanery that has been occurring for +10 years. Only difference is some of the player’s names have changed.

      Good one Joel! I had to look that up again, but you (and George Orwell) are so right.

    For the most part, auDA are bitches.  Until they are actually held accountable by the Government, nothing will change.  Conroy was an absolute joke.  http://www.minister.communications.gov.au/mitch_fifield This bloke may be able to do something.  Members should hold all board members accountable on their stance with the transparency of meeting minutes.  Funny… some of the same people that were bitching about “the swamp” when CD was CEO are there now- and nothing is changing and probably getting worse.
