auDA appoints new members to standing committees Featured

By

auDA, the organisation that manages the Australian domain namespace, has appointed new members to its General Advisory Standing Committee and the Technical Advisory Standing Committee.

The establishment of the two committees is mandated by the new auDA constitution, with the committees serving an important role as the mechanism by which the Australian Internet community can raise issues with the auDA board.

The role of the General Advisory Standing Committee is to receive and consider submissions from members of the general public who are interested in the management, operations, decisions or actions of the company – and the GASC can also self-initiate projects related to the management decisions or actions of auDA.

Appointees to the General Advisory Standing Committee are:

  • Leslie Callaway
  • Darryl Carlton
  • Steve DeMamiel
  • Michael Dodge
  • Ian Halson
  • Alison Howe
  • P R Khangure
  • Jon Lawrence
  • Paul Marshall
  • Charles Reis
  • Madeleine Roberts
  • Nikki Scholes
  • Peter Tonoli
  • Trent Wabbis

Peter Tonoli has been appointed interim cvhair of the General Advisory Standing Committee.

auDA has also published the list of appointees to the Technical Advisory Standing Committee, the role of which is to receive and consider submissions from members of the general public who are:

(i) interested in the management, operations, decisions or actions of the company; and

(ii) have particular knowledge or expertise that relates to technical aspects of the operations, decisions or actions of the company.

The appointees to the Technical Advisory Standing Committee are:

  • David Keegel
  • Alexey Chernyak
  • Scott Wilkie
  • Geoff Huston
  • Craig Marchant
  • Jonathan Gleeson
  • John Graham
  • Zach de Koning

Scott Wilkie has been appointed interim chair of the Technical Advisory Standing Committee.

auDA says both committees will hold their initial meetings shortly, and committee members will be contacted individually notifying them of the meetings.

auDA has said it will be providing administrative and logistical support to the committees, with the initial meetings to be held at the auDA offices – with each committee able to co-opt and attract additional members on a case-by-case basis.
