I asked a similar question during the open mic at AFRINIC-29, more
specifically regarding people that say "speaking in my own capacity".

The answer from an AFRINIC board member was that when it comes to policy
it is about the community and there is no distinction between saying
that you are speaking as an organization or personal capacity. At least
that is what I could grasp.

The answer can be listed as from 52:47 here:
