    "Chair's Letter: Demand Class Director Appointments

    New Demand Class Directors


    Dear auDA Members and Stakeholders,

    It is my great pleasure to advise you that earlier today the auDA Board concluded the formalities to appoint three new Demand Class directors:



    Holly Raiche
    Widely acknowledged as a leader in internet governance and in multi-stakeholder consultations. Holly has been a Demand Class member since April 2012.

    Holly's term expires at the 2019 AGM.

    Damian Smith
    A successful digital business leader and entrepreneur. Damian has applied to become a Demand Class member.

    Damian's term expires at the 2018 AGM.

    Nigel Phair
    One of Australia’s leading experts in cyber‑security, cyber‑crime, and cyber‑ethics. Nigel has been a Demand Class member since February 2018.

    Nigel's term expires at the 2019 AGM.



    I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Sandra Hook, an independent director and Chair of auDA’s Governance Committee, who jointly led the recruitment process with Tim Connell (Demand Class director).

    The process started with advertising across a broad range of stakeholder groups which resulted in 30 high‑calibre nominations.

    The short-listed candidates participated in a series of interviews, reference checking, and probity checking (ASIC, police, professional). Importantly, the whole board participated in a skills‑matrix analysis to identify the optimal skills and experience for the new directors.

    Sandra and Tim were well supported throughout this extensive process by directors Erhan Karabardak and Grant Wiltshire, and Hasaka Martin (Company Secretary).

    Please join me in welcoming our new directors.

    Chris Leptos
    Independent Chair

    Nigel Phair had the absolute lowest vote count at the recent election, 4 votes.

    The sales pitch about Damien Smith joining as a member is ridiculous. This justifies the appointment?

    How are those two representative appointments?

    Mr Leptos, it is time to resign!

    I wonder what effect this will have on the SGM and the resolutions?

    www.Grumpier.com.au
    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
    Resolution 4 – Removal of Suzanne Ewart as a Director

    I imagine it will effect Ms Hook’s voting.
