Volunteer to Serve on the 2021 ARIN Fellowship Selection Committee

Posted: Monday, 11 January 2021

Volunteer now to serve on the 2021 ARIN Fellowship Selection Committee! This is an opportunity for up to five volunteers to serve a one-year term on a key committee that is responsible for selecting qualified individuals within the ARIN region to attend an ARIN Public Policy and Members Meeting (PPMM), participate in the Policy Development Process (PDP), and broaden their awareness of ARIN’s work and services.

In response to the travel challenges faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditionally in-person Fellowship Program is shifting to a virtual space for ARIN 47. The program will consist of four 60-90 minute sessions held weekly via Zoom and provide focused interaction to develop relationships between Fellows, seasoned technology professionals in the community, and ARIN staff and leadership. ARIN Fellows will be paired with an ARIN community member throughout the program.

To be considered for the Selection Committee, you must:

  • be a representative from an ARIN General Member Organization in Good Standing or an ARIN Fellow alum;
  • have attended or participated in at least one ARIN PPMM in the last three years; and
  • be able to contribute approximately 20 hours of time during February/March and August/September 2021 to review applications and select fellowship recipients

Members from ARIN’s Board of Trustees and Advisory Council are eligible to serve.

Individuals interested in volunteering for the 2021 Fellowship Selection Committee must complete a brief volunteer questionnaire no later than Friday, 22 January, by visiting the following link:
