    Re:From the ARIN Postel Workers Labor Union Meetin

    The key is to just keep embellishing the pyramid.

    "The executive council officers rotate on an annual basis. This year, Axel Pawlik is the chair; Paul Wilson, last year's chair, is a member; Raul Echeberria is the Secretary; and Ray Plzak is the Treasurer. AfriNIC is not taking on many NRO duties this year."

    Note the several references to "years" and annual-ness (not a word). That gives people the impression
    that the NRO has been around for years. The NRO
    is total vapor, yet, the implication is that it
    has "duties" which AfriNIC would not be able to
    handle, yet. Note also all of the titles,
    "executive council" (of course they are
    executives - they say they are). "officers" is
    a good word, it makes it sound official.

    The BS never ends.

    Did anyone ask David Conrad why he was removed from APNIC ? and why APNIC was moved from Japan
    to Australia ? [Actually, APNIC was moved from
    David Conrad's off-shore company in the Seychelles but the front was operated in Japan.]

    ARIN Financial Report
    Speaker: David Conrad, Treasurer
    Presentation: PDF PPT
    David Conrad presented a report on ARIN's finances. Highlights included:

    ARIN performed a Sarbanes-Oxley audit.
    ARIN hired a new auditor.
    The Finance Committee reviewed ARIN's audit results, monitored ARIN's financial position, reviewed ARIN's insurance coverage for some concerns about additional liability coverage, and accepted the investment advisor's recommendation to diversify funds, including adding some international investments.
    ARIN's draft audited statements of activities were presented.
