        The 2nd general meeting of JPNIC

 The 2nd general meeting of JPNIC was held on April 5,1994 at the Kikai
Sinkou Kaikan (Minato-ku, Tokyo). The steering committee meeting and the
board of trustees meeting were held prior to the general meeting and as
the board of trustees meeting exceeded the schedule for about the 30 minutes,
the general meeting was opened at 14:30.

Topic 1: Confirmation of the previous minutes of the meeting

 Followed by the opening speech of President Jun Murai, the minutes of
the first general meeting held on 4/94 was confirmed. Although a few
corrections related to the list of names of the attendants was done, there
were no problems related to the contents of the previous minutes of the

Topic 2: Settlement of accounts for the year 1993

 Next, the secretary-general Masaya Nakayama reported the accounts (refer to
document1 given at the end), and the report related to the activities of
each Working Group (from now on it will be abbreviated as WG) was confirmed.

 With respect to the budget of 10,000,000 Yen, because of the membership
fees of the members who entered in the middle of the fiscal year, donations,
and bank interests the amount became 14,466,463 Yen. However, among the
membership fees, because of the accounting circumstances of the members side,
700,000 Yen has not been paid as of April 5. There were written correspondence
explaining the situation from those members to the president of JPNIC.

 In the expenditure part, the expenses for printing, meeting,
travel, labor, translation of documents and purchase of magnetic disk units
from the reserved budget totalled to 9,538,145 Yen and considering 4,3000,000
Yen for the cost for making it an incorporation the total amount was reported
as 13,838,145 Yen. As a result the balance to be carried for the next year
became 628,318 Yen.

 Out of them, there were certain items for which the estimated cost and the
actual cost varied widely.

 o Because of the cooperation of the Computer Center of Tokyo University, the
   secretariat is placed within the center and as a result it has been
   possible to save some of the expenses (copy etc.)

 o Things that were pointed out in the middle of the fiscal year (expenses
   for translation)

 o The total amount decreased because of the late execution of the budget.

 At this stage, there was the comment that, whether the expenses necessary
for making JPNIC an incorporation has been approved or not. In
respect to that, the auditor Naomasa Maruyama explained the following points.

 o Although it is not yet decided, it would become necessary in the process
   of making it an incorporation.

 o It is difficult to find the expenditure that has crossed the budget with
   respect to the earnings that has crossed the budget and from the point
   of management, it is not desirable to have a large amount of surplus.

 There seems to be discussions regarding this matter during the board of
trustees meeting. And it has been heard, that this was the reason for
extending the board of trustees meeting for 30 minutes.

 Topic 3: JPNIC members for the year 1994

 The list of members for the present year was introduced. Two members have
left in the middle of the fiscal year and as a result the number of members
has become 22.

 Topic 4: Budget for the year 1994

 Following was an explanation by the secretary-general Masaya Nakayama
regarding the budget for the year 1994 (refer to document 2 given at the end).
The budget for the present year is based on the applications from each WG
and the performance of last year. Compared to the last year, although the
membership fees have increased, this is to be used for the following.

 o Labor costs for the staffs engaged to the secretariat, cost for each WG's
   part-timer (although it was supposed to be free of cost)

 o Improvement of softwares for allocation and development (this was also
   supposed to be free of cost)

 o Expenses for official reports

 Topic 5: Revision of rules and regulations

 The last topic was related to the revision of the regulations of Japan
Network Information Center. Naomasa Maruyama who is the chairman of rule WG
explained about the points that are to be revised. The rules are also to be
revised along with the revision of the regulations, and it has been reported
that the approval is already obtained during the board of trustees meeting.

 There was the opinion that the introduction of half-yearly system is not
necessary. The main points related to the the revision are as follows.

 o Introduction of half-yearly pay system for membership
 o Strengthen the policy for preventing the raise of membership fees
 o Strengthen the effect of the letters from the administrative authority
 o Addition of quorum for making decisions based on documents
 o Decide the vice chair of the steering committee during the term of the
   committee members
 o Correspondence to donations


 At the end, vote was performed for the 3 topics mentioned above and in each
case, the decision was based on the majority of votes.
