[AfriNIC-rpd] AFPUB-2011-v4-003-draft-02 - Limited Out ofRegion Allocation of IPv4 Resources

Member fees is indeed a Board Decision. HOWEVER, Andrew's policy cleverly tackles that by saying the foreign entity would pay the prevailing membership fee +100%.  Meaning, whatever the Board decides + 100% (difficult mathematical way of saying doubling the amount ;-)

If we are going to pass this thing, which i don't think we will, I
would prefer to wait until they are completely out.

In addition, If we are going to try and "soak the rich" let's really
hit them hard.  Doubling the fees for out of region membership is too
little.  Why not 10x, or 100x?  In any case, I think this (Member
fees) is a Board decision that cna't be addressed by policy.

Perhaps legal counsel can weigh in on the issue of who sets fees??
