[Community-Discuss] [members-discuss] Resolution requesting the boards resignation

Again – cross posted – deliberately.

Considering that two members of the board sat in decision to deny the vote of no confidence – and deny the membership the right to cast their ballots and indicate their trust or lack of trust in this board – I will say this – I for one – am now openly advocating NOT to elect the two members – including the chair who is standing for re-election – if this is the total lack of faith they show towards this community.

Hence – I am openly encouraging every single member here – and everyone who can lay their hands on a proxy to vote in the election – to send a message to this board – and vote NONE OF THE ABOVE for members who were part of this farcical decision.

Dear Mark,

The Board at a special meeting held on the 18th of April 2018 had the opportunity to reconsider your request  to include a standard resolution in the upcoming AGMM agenda. The Board has decided not to include it in the agenda inline with section 12.14(ix) of the bylaw. However, the Board suggests that the item can be discussed during the Open Mic session should members be interested.

It is my hope that we will all continue to contribute positively to building a much stronger AFRINIC.

Thank you for your understanding and apologies for the inconvenience this might have caused.

Kind regards

Dear Mark,

Apologies as the Board could not respond to your e-mail yesterday.

The Board acknowledges receipt of your mail.

The Board further reminds the Members that every member has the right to table a resolution at the AGMM.

Your proposal therefore will be added to the agenda for the coming AGMM in Senegal.

Dear Board,
I have not received any acknowledgement of the motion as tabled by myself. Can the board please confirm that this will be placed on the AGMM agenda as per section 14 of the bylaws.
