Please find attached (in RTF) the Minutes of last week's ADNA Board Meeting
in Sydney.  As usual, I have provided a summary of the Action Points at the

The Minutes contain a Timetable for future events, including 
the Trade Marks Office/ADNA seminar 9.00am to 12.30 pm, on 27 November in
Melbourne (at 207 Bouverie St, Theatre 1 in Basement 1) and repeated on 28
November in Sydney (c/- Phillips Fox, 255 Elizabeth St). This seminar,
organised and chaired by the Australian Trade Marks Commissioner Mr Ross
Wilson, is designed to test public reaction to the proposed introduction of 
(1) a tm.au domain restricted to names already registered as Australian
trademarks, and 
(2) a pr.au domain (with no naming policy restrictions) for potential or
existing products or services offered in Australia.

The ADNA Board will aim to finalise the Policies and Registrar Selection
Criteria for tm.au and pr.au at its next Board Meeting in Melbourne on 28
January 1998, and authorise advertising for applications for Registrars of
the new 2LDs (with a 60 day response period, including public comment on
the Policies).  ADNA's solicitors (Phillips Fox) will  be used to provide
preliminary vetting of applications, based on very similar objective
criteria to those used for vetting the internatioanl gTLD registrars. An
independent ADNA Board Committee will be established to make final
recommendations on the successful applications to the Board meeting in
April 1998.
