Call for Nominations Extended for Board

Posted: Wednesday, 21 July 2021

Per the request of the 2021 Nomination Committee (NomCom), ARIN is extending the Call for Nominations for the Board of Trustees. The NomCom has determined the extension is necessary to generate an adequate candidate slate for the Board of Trustees election.

Nominations will now be accepted through 5:00 PM EDT on Friday, 30 July 2021 to fill two seats on the ARIN Board of Trustees. All nominees who have already accepted their nominations and completed their questionnaires need take no further action, and the additional eligible nominations received will be added to the pool of nominees for the NomCom to consider including in the Initial Slate of Candidates to be announced later this year.

Contribute to the ARIN community by verifying the eligibility requirements for nominators and nominees and submitting a nomination for a qualified individual today! To submit a nomination, visit:

Nominator Requirements

ARIN Trustees and representatives from General Members in Good Standing may make up to three nominations for each open position on the Board of Trustees. Eligible individuals may nominate anyone, including themselves. Nominees are not required to have an affiliation with an ARIN Member.

If you are not an ARIN Trustee or a representative from a Member in Good Standing, the members of the NomCom may assist in submitting a nomination on your behalf – either as a nomination of yourself or someone you know whom you believe is qualified. Simply send an email to with the name and contact information (phone and email) of the person you wish to nominate – but as time is limited, don’t wait!

Nominee Requirements

To view requirements, expected qualifications, and/or responsibilities for the Board of Trustees, see:

All nominees must confirm that they qualify and are willing to serve if elected and that they do not violate the Nomination and Appointment Conflict of Interest List found at:

All nominees must officially accept their nomination and submit their completed nominee questionnaire no later than 5:00 PM ET on Friday, 30 July, when this extension of the Call for Nominations period closes. ARIN strongly discourages last minute nominations since there may not be adequate time for a nominee to be notified, accept their nomination, and/or complete and submit their questionnaire.
