Posted: Tuesday, 02 June 2020

With the call for nominations closing soon, there’s only a limited window left for you to participate and help the ARIN community early on by submitting a nomination for the 2020 ARIN elections. For this year’s elections, ARIN is looking to fill two seats on the ARIN Board of Trustees, five seats on the ARIN Advisory Council, and one seat on the Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC).

ARIN is accepting nominations through 5:00 PM ET, Saturday, 13 June 2020. To submit one or more nominations now, please go to:

To submit a nomination for the ARIN Board of Trustees and/or Advisory Council, a nominator must be an ARIN Trustee or a representative from an ARIN General Member in Good Standing. Eligible nominators may nominate themselves, a representative from an ARIN Member organization, or from non-member organizations consistent with ARIN election processes and may make up to three nominations per open seat. Incumbents are eligible to be re-elected for consecutive terms.

For the NRO Number Council, any individual, regardless of ARIN member affiliation, may self-nominate or nominate one or more candidates residing in the ARIN region to fill the open seat. NRO NC incumbents may serve for consecutive terms. This year the ARIN Board of Trustees will appoint the representative prior to the ARIN Elections opening. For additional key information about this nomination period, please see our previous announcement:
