APTLD Board Meeting Communiqué (17 March 2016)

On 17 March 2016, the APTLD Board held its monthly
teleconference and considered a range of matters, the most important
of which are published in this Communiqué.

Discussion and approval of the
vendor to perform the APTLD Website Revamp

The Board examined both the proposals for website
revamp and findings of the technical and financial assessment performed by
volunteers from .sg and .lk and were in favour of CNNIC’s proposal. The Board
instructed GM to further negotiate a contract with the vendor.

The Board expressed its gratitude to Mr. Danny Chen of
.sg and Ms. Geethika Wijeratne of .lk for their commitment and service to the
community

Discussion and approval of the
Website Revamp Contract

The Board discussed a Contract drafted on the
voluntary basis by .ru’s lawyers and suggested there is a need for further
modifications thereto. The Board further suggested the Board members have 14
days to look into the matter and provide their comments and recommendations to
GM to amend the draft Contract accordingly.

The Board expressed its gratitude to .ru for their
commitment and service to the community

Discussion on selection of the
APTLD auditor for 2016

The Board examined two proposals from auditor
companies based in Hong Kong and found the number insufficient to make an
informed decision. The Board suggested GM obtain one more quotation to ensure
the Board makes an adequate decision in the best interests of the APTLD
community.

The 2016 Members Survey

The Board considered the GM’s update and examined a draft
2016 Members Survey and requested board members to send in their comments, if
any.

The State of the 2016 Budget

The Board discussed
the state of execution of the APTLD 2016 budget and noted with satisfaction
most ordinary members have observed the membership fee payment timelines and
suggested GM and Accounts contact the rest of the members to encourage payment
of their fees in a timely manner.

Preparations for APTLD70 and
training sessions

The Board received the
GM’s debrief on progress in preparations for APTLD70 and noted with
satisfaction the developments have been on the right track.

The Board further
discussed the GM’s update on a possibility for APTLD to co-locate and
co-sponsor an Asia Pacific Summer Internet Governance School’s sessions in Bangkok
and suggested GM inform its organizing group thereof.

In conclusion, the
Board considered a number of administrative issues.
