On July 24th 2011, we attended the 8th KENIC AGM. As you know KENIC is a multistakeholder organisation so membership is drawn from government (CCK), Private sector (registrars, ISPs) and public through civil society. The minutes will be put online but here are some highlights from the meeting:
Google is partnering with KENIC to increase local content. KENIC gave Google a chance to make a presentation to especially registrars on how they can partner especially to increase local domains. Some interesting figures that caught my attention:

Questions raised after presentation on ADRP (notably, most were asked by ICAK reps)
During the main business of the meeting, ICAK also participated actively, offering advice, proposing motions and giving the vote of thanks. It was noted that KENIC had done a commendable job of organising the 37th ICAAN meeting that had put Kenya on the map as a conference destination.
