    I'm sorry I can't make it along this time but perhaps this might be useful for a meetup discussion topic as it is relevant to all in the industry, government and every domain name registrant concerned with the issues.
    http://www.domainer.com.au/auda-put-up-or-shut-up
    www.grumpy.com.au

    Maybe over a beer (or softdrink etc) things can be discussed, resolved and some common sense kicks in..... It is not working how it is at the moment and it's hurting the reputation and proper management of the .au namespace.

    no, never have, no board matters are discussed, its an industry catch up and i enjoy it as i sit there not as a director but as findtim, i also think the people who attend have the respect for me to not expect anything else.
    its just a fun night and the topics often go outside of domaining.

    tim;
    let me correct the post, they discuss board matters, i don't

    I'd like to politely remind you that you were elected to the board as a director as "findtim". They are one in the same.

    The fact you separate the two will lose you more votes than you can afford.

    We elected you to stand up for end users, but we've seen none of it. Queue the PM? Don't bother. I'm not interested in what's been done behind the scenes.

    I renewed my membership to make my vote count. Many come here and blow wind up our you know what near election time.

    You are here but never discuss the hard issues. Must be some club we voted you into.

    I've forgotten why we voted 1 findtim???

    6 in total if my counting is correct, for those who enjoy maths that is 71% more people than AUDA's recent member meet up (they had 3.5 - one guy walked out half way through).
