    For the first time in its history, auDA is now charging Members a fee for access to its Membership list.
    Rather than having an argument with auDA, this is a crowd fund to raise the $250 to access the Membership list.
    This will allow communication to occur with all auDA Members regarding the upcoming Special General Meeting

    Done.
    But I am still left wondering which statutory obligations prescribe that such a fee be levied.
    What fee was levied upon the "grumpy" campaign for access to the same information?

    They are crying poor yet again? Is this fee their “next big plan” to try and derail the SGM?

    Did auDA hand over the list? What can be done to contact all members and inform them of goings on?

    Eg the court victory against auDA and former director Simon Johnson’s comments that the board should resign?

    I think there is a pretty constant stream of news but the member base as a whole (eg people outside dnt) may only be hearing Mr Leptos’s propaganda.

    Not yet. Here is the response from the auDA company secretary.

    I belive the statutory obligations mean that auDA can wait up to 7 days before sending the Membership list.
    If auDA chooses to continue playing these type of games it will only reflect poorly on them.

    I think this is stuff the members would want to know about.

    Just reading that it sounds like auDA didn't need to charge a fee for the list at all. It sounds like they chose to charge a fee (which they are legally able to do under the the act) in order to impede members access to it? Sounds like also that auDA have set the fee at the maximum amount allowed of $250?

    Little doubt they’ll be timing the sending of the list down to the minute.

    Exciting to receive the first newsletter today,

    This in particular struck me,

    Why is auDA management refusing to properly investigate the leak? Will the investigation of the leak be up to a future regime?

    If the most serious leak in auDA's history is not going to be investigated what message does that send? Why would anyone take auDA confidentiality agreement's seriously?

    If they investigated themselves, they might find the culprit/s.

    Looking forward to the SGM.
