The 2021 Nomination Committee Is Seeking Volunteers

Posted: Tuesday, 04 May 2021

The 2021 Nomination Committee (NomCom), chaired by ARIN Trustee Catherine Middleton, is seeking five volunteers from the community to serve a one-year term on the committee. The NomCom has the important role of helping to shape the future of ARIN by identifying, recruiting, and assessing candidates standing for election to the ARIN Board of Trustees and the ARIN Advisory Council (AC). This is done in accordance with the ARIN Bylaws, the documented ARIN Election Processes, and with guidance from the Board of Trustees. Volunteers must be from an ARIN Member organization in Good Standing and can’t be a candidate for an ARIN Election in the same year.

The NomCom is comprised of seven representatives, including two members from the ARIN Board of Trustees (one serving as Chair), who then select and appoint five individual representatives from the pool of volunteers drawn from the General Membership. Chosen representatives may include up to two actively-serving Advisory Council members.
