On January 22, 2003 via electronic means, the Board unanimously consented to the ARIN AC’s appointment of Dana Argiro as an Interim Member to the ARIN AC to fill the seat vacated by Barbara Roseman.

6. Formal Approval of the Procedure for Approving Meeting Minutes

At the December 11, 2001 board meeting, the board adopted a procedure for approving meeting minutes, subject to final parliamentary review by the Chairman. At the January 22, 2002 teleconference meeting of the Board, it was agreed a header stating the minutes were ‘draft’ until the next regularly scheduled meeting would be added to the procedure. The Board had not formally adopted this procedure as modified by the Chairman during his parliamentary review.

The procedure for approving meeting minutes is included herein for reference:

Staff-composed meeting minutes are sent to the Board Secretary for approval. Upon the Secretary’s approval, the draft minutes are sent via electronic means to the Minutes Committee comprised of the Board as a Committee of the whole. Members have ten (10) business days to respond with approval or suggested changes. Lack of response within ten days will be construed as approval of the minutes as drafted. If changes are received, they will be incorporated by the Secretary and the revised draft will be sent back to the Committee for final approval. If a second round of review is necessary, response is required within five (5) business days. The Minutes will be posted as “draft” to the ARIN website until formal approval by the Board at the next regularly scheduled board meeting at which time the minutes would be posted as approved.

Scott Bradner moved that

“The ARIN Board of Trustees adopt the Procedure for Approving Meeting Minutes as modified.”

This was seconded by David Conrad.

Ray then made a friendly amendment to change the procedure to state that the draft minutes would be changed to read “approved” after approval by the Board. All agreed to this friendly amendment.

Scott moved that the new motion read,

“The ARIN Board of Trustees adopts the Procedure for Approving Meeting Minutes as modified and amended.”

All were in favor, and the motion passed unanimously.

EXHIBIT A

Procedure for the Appointment of an Interim Member of the ARIN Advisory Council

In the event that one of the elected positions on the ARIN Advisory Council (AC) is vacated before the end of the term for that position, the following procedure may, at the option of the ARIN AC, be used to select an individual to fill that position until the next regularly scheduled ARIN AC election. At that time, the remaining term of that position will be open to the general election process.

1. When there are runner-up nominees from the previous ARIN AC election who received at least 5% of the total votes cast, the AC will ask the runner up with the highest number of votes if they are willing to serve out the term until the next regular election. The AC may continue down the list of candidates, in order of highest number of votes and still within the 5% category, until a replacement is found.

2. When there are no eligible candidates from the prior election, the Advisory Council may, by majority vote, appoint an interim representative.
