Welcome on board.
Just a small clarification/reiteration. 

>From an operational perspective spot on! As it should be. 

However, what happens when an issue needs to be addressed by the Board? Will you then represent the board? 

>From a corporate governance perspective this must and should be addressed by the board chair. You cannot represent the board on such matters. Kindly clarify this point. Let me also add that as a community based organization the board cannot be hands off. As long as they don’t interfere with the day to day running of the organization. Their fiduciary responsibility requires that from time to time they address issues pertaining to their role. The board chair usually represents them on this.

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to let you know that I have been following the ongoing conversations on our various mailings lists with great interest.  I thank you for the feedback and concerns which I believe can only strengthen AFRINIC operations going forward.

I would particularly like to respond to emails concerning the roles of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the AFRINIC Board of Directors (BoD) in communicating with Members and the Community. This is something we have been discussing with the BoD right after my appointment , and I would like to state that, from now henceforth, all matters concerning AFRINIC operations will be dealt by me. The BoD is in charge of governance, strategy and oversight role of the affairs of the company as described in section 15 of the Bylaws. 

I hope this addresses some of the concerns raised.

I take this opportunity to once again thank you for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

Eddy Kayihura
