    what happens to these 'members' if a Local registrar looses its auDA accreditation, or a take-over by another company occurs and they don't want to deal with the .au?

    955 x $22 = $21,010.00

    Wow that's all it cost to capture an industry regulator. I wonder if they got a Bulk discount.

    Little doubt Cameron will be highlighting this risk to government and ignoring the fact that he is the one responsible.

    CB will have his sights set on the Chair of Security and Risk Committee Suzie Ewart & the Chair of the Governance Committee Sandra Hook as the sacrificial lambs...their removal by the members is a perfect cover.

    I doubt anybody paid anything to anyone. It was quite possibly part of the "initiative".

    You could ask Sandra Hooks if they paid. And if they were phoned up to see if they were real people as per the procedures for Australians... ha ha ha ha. Governance ha ha ha.

    Why are Australian domain owners questioned about their eligibility but Steveberry Yap who does not have any online presence gets membership without question. The list looks like it was generated by bots.

    Maybe they used the auDA secret marketing slush fund rebate money actually so it cost the Supply Registrars $0?
