With the recent change to the APNIC Fee Structure, the APNIC Executive Council (EC) convened this BoF to seek community input on current and future mechanisms with regard to the voting tier structure and voting entitlements. The EC will provide various options for the community to consider in this Voting BoF.
It is important to note that the current voting structure has not altered under the new fee structure. For more information, see the APNIC Membership: Tiers and Voting rights document that will come into effect from 1 January 2010.
Birds of a Feather meetings (BOFs) are informal meetings which are convened for a variety of purposes such as exchanging information, and discussing new ideas or particular issues. They can be proposed and convened at short notice and there is no formal requirement for submission of papers or posting to mailing lists.
BOFs serve as a means to conduct ad hoc and informal meetings, and also as a useful means to gauge interest in a particular topic or idea prior to the establishment of a new SIG.
