LARUS Foundation,

Please refrain from sending me these mails too. I have been deleting but getting tired of doing so. I daresay I speak for NRENs and universities so take them out of your list too.

Many thanks

With his expertise and commitment, having him as a chairperson can only contribute to the improvement of AFRINIC’s services. Also, Mr. Wollner lived, studied, and worked in South Africa, that said, he has the sufficient baggage and is aware of the specificities of our continent, in terms of Internet technicalities, legislations and needs.
