The "not fit for purpose" auDA Management, CEO and Board have secretly increased their auDA fees starting 1st July 2018.

This might explain why they want $170,000 as Directors and the auDA CEO Cameron Boardman's Performance Bonuses kept quiet!

How much is the auDA CEO Cameron Boardman Paid?
What is the auDA CEO Bonus?
What are his Expenses?

How much is the auDA Chair Chris Leptos paid?
What are his expenses?

These people are now ripping off ALL Registrars, Resellers and .au domain name Consumers!

Resolution 1 – Vote of no confidence in Cameron Boardman (CEO)
Resolution 2 – Removal of Chris Leptos as a Director
Resolution 3 – Removal of Sandra Hook as a Director

auDA.org.au Management and Board secretly puts up their own hidden compulsory fees and taxes on 3 million .au domain name Consumers!

auDA should have to disclose their fees/ taxes to all .au domain name Consumers.

Icann currently have their fees disclosed on all .com advertising and pricing. What is auDA hiding from .au domain name Consumers?
What is the ICANN fee? 18 Cents (us)

ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) charges a mandatory annual fee of $0.18 for each year of domain registration, renewal or transfer. For example, the fee for a one-year .com domain registration will be $0.18 while it is $0.36 for a two-year .com domain registration.

Where is the detailed plan how current auDA Management and Board want to spend $12 million of auDA funds on a marketing slush fund for Registrars?

There has been NO improvement in accountability or transparency from current auDA management.
