Hello All,

As David mentioned I'll be presenting the proxy votes in Taipei and  
wanted to encourage everyone to get their proxies back to David.

For those of you who have been to APNIC elections, you'll understand  
what we are up against, the organizational voting blocks of the bigger  
Asian countries is formidable. The big chance we have to get our  
representation comes from the vast numbers of Small members we have in  

Surprisingly Aussie small members alone account for roughly 10% of all  
APNIC votes.

I've listed all the Small/Medium members at the end of this email, if  
you're on the list take a couple of minutes to get the proxy form back  
to David, and if you notice one of two of your customer/friends please  
take the opportunity to send them the proxy form and details of the  

It is likely that during David's term we will see the practical  
exhaustion of IPv4 address or certainly the effects of imminent  
exhaustion. Australia has had a very checkered and interesting history  
in regards to resource allocations and as older service providers will  
no doubt remember policy changes are likely to effect AU/NZ most of  
all. Remember .au alone accounts for over 30% of all APNIC members, so  
getting an ISP representative is vital.
