(Apologies for cross-posts...)
APNIC 30 is currently underway in Australia, and as part of the meeting,
an on-site election for a new Number Resource Organisation (NRO -
) Number Council representative from the AP region
will be held on Friday.
Our very own Jonny D. Martin has been nominated for the NRO NC. Jonny
needs no introduction to most of you, having been a strong contributer
to the Interwebs especially in the Asia Pacific region for quite some
time. For those of you who don't know Jonny, the details of his
nomination are at http://meetings.apnic.net/30/elections/jonnymartin
Online voting closes tomorrow (Wednesday 25 August) at 1100 hrs NZ time,
and proxy votes are not available for this election. This means that to
throw your organisation's support behind Jonny, you need to get someone
with voting rights to vote through MyAPNIC before 1100 hrs tomorrow
morning! If you do not know someone with with voting rights, talk to
your corporate contact, or get in touch with the APNIC helpdesk.
Additionally, there is a Policy SIG meeting on Thursday. Current policy
proposals are listed at http://www.apnic.net/community/policy/proposals
This is your opportunity to have a say in APNIC policy development, so
join in and help shape the future of the Internet in the Asia Pacific
Remote participation (http://meetings.apnic.net/30/remote
) is available,
or there are half a dozen or so Kiwis here that can pass comments or
questions on the proposals on to the meeting on your behalf.
