The Proposal on APTLD Fund 1999< back to list
1999. 8. 9
Asia-Pacific Top Level Domain Name Forum(APTLD), I would like to ask you to
consider donation to cover APTLD activities this year. We discussed the funding
issue at APTLD Meetings, in particualr at its Singapore Meeting in March 1999. We
tentatively agreed that we would need US$50,000 – 100,000 per year, and the
straw vote at the meeting agreed that we could raise US$50,000 or more per year
from APTLD membership.
discussed with a few countries if they could donate for the operating expense
of APTLD this year prior to its incorporation. We had positive responses, and
we proposed US$40,000 budget with one full time staff.
The detail of the
budget will be attached in Appendix. We hired one staff on April 1 to handle
ever increasing APTLD secretariat work.
Here, we would
like to ask you to donate to cover APTLD activities for this year; 1999.3.1-
2000.2.28. So far, Australia, Japan,
Korea, and Taiwan tentatively agreed to donate.
