*4. External Auditor for Financial Year 2019*

AfriNIC has a statutory requirement to appoint an External Auditor.
The External Auditor which was appointed for FY 2019 informed AfriNIC that

PwC response. AfriNIC will be appointing an External Auditor to fill the
casual vacancy as per section 15.3 (v).

> On the agenda for the last day of AFRINIC-31

> https://meeting.afrinic.net/afrinic-31/en/agenda/programme is a

> 90-minute session for Board Community Engagement.


> This is an interactive session between the AFRINIC Board and the AFRINIC

> community to discuss on AFRINIC's governance amongst others.



> May I ask for a draft agenda for this session ASAP, please? The currently

> published outline is rather vague.


> In particular, I am interested in being able to make contribution to the

> topics ahead of the session or remotely. As I have stated in the past

> regarding a similar engagement, having a rough outline will also help with

> time management for the session (if the aim is to achieve something more

> than just checking a box off a to-do list).


> Thanks to the initiators for making this possible.


> Regards,

> Dewole.
