About council-discuss

The InternetNZ Council Discuss Mailing List is a closed mailing list created for the sole use the Council of InternetNZ to discuss issues between face-to-face Council Meetings.

Councillors may use the list to gain consensus for a motion for the next face-to-face meeting. Any Councillor may decide that there is consensus and must then email the Executive Director, Chair,
or Secretary with notice of motion. If the issue is urgent and requires an E-Vote, the Councillor may request the Chair of InternetNZ to call the Council into E-session via the Council Announce mailing list.

Membership of the list is restricted to Council members of IntrernetNZ and all Councillors encouraged to subscribe and to check this list regularly.
