    Well done Ned. It's fantastic to have someone of your calibre on the panel.

    Credit to auDA for choosing the person who is perhaps their greatest critic.

    the auda board had nothing to do with it, we chose john and he did the rest, which i think is a positive approach to the independence of the panel.
    yes congrats ned and EVERYONE, it looks like john has done a great job bringing together a good mix of people .
    this is probably one of the most important panels we have ever had.

    Thanks Shane - looking forward to it immensely. Though as Tim said, ostensibly my selection had nothing to do with auDA. It was all down to the Chair (John Swinson).

    Panels and working groups are the backbones of auDA - vitally important. I have made the effort to be part and parcel of many over the years. Why? Because it is my lifeblood.

    As I wrote today on Domainer, apart from the issue of direct registrations, potentially the most fundamental changes to auDA policy are going to be deliberated on the Policy Review Panel. To consolidate and update over 30 existing policies into just 3 is going to be exciting and challenging.

    I didn't say anything about the board. I take your point about it being the decision of the panel chair though.

    Given my election last Monday as an auDA Demand Class Director, I am no longer able to be a member of the Policy Review Panel (PRP).

    Whilst it hasn't been officially announced via a newsletter from auDA, I did notice that my replacement has been named on the auDA website.

    I think we can all be so happy that John Swinson has chosen someone of the calibre of Luke Summers to be the Demand Class member on the panel. Full story on Domainer today.

    Congratulations Luke! :)

    I was just thinking today, how easy it is for him to choose the right person for demand class.
