4.1 The 8th General Meeting Flash Report
The 8th General Meeting of Japan Network Information Center (JPNIC) was convened in the 9th-floor Heian-no-Ma Room of Japan Education Hall on Wednesday, March 22, 2000. There were two items on the agenda for the meeting: Approval of the Fiscal Year 2000 Business Plan, and Approval of the Fiscal Year 2000 Budget Plan.
The meeting began by Secretary General Higashida reporting that a quorum had been met with 155 members in attendance (379 votes), including the Chairman's delegated attendance, whereupon the meeting was declared formally open. Election of the Chairman followed. By unanimous endorsement of all regular members in attendance, Jun Murai was elected to the Chair. Subsequently, the nomination of Nobuo Sakata and Yoshifumi Kato as signers of the Minutes of the General Meeting was approved.
Because the items on the agenda for the meeting were interrelated, comprehensive explanations were offered, whereupon each of the proposed items was approved.
The first item on the agenda, the Fiscal Year 2000 Business Plan, was presented by Sano, Chair of the Steering Committee. The second item on the agenda, proposing approval of the Fiscal Year 2000 Budget Plan, was presented by Secretary General Higashida and two members of the JPNIC Secretariat, with the use of printed materials. Both items were unanimously approved as originally proposed.
