About the NRO Number Council

The NRO NC advises the NRO Executive Council on global Internet number resource policy proposals. Under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the NRO in October 2003, the NRO NC also performs the role of the ICANN Address Supporting Organization Address Council (ASO AC).

Each of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) appoints three members to the ASO AC. Two members are elected and one member is appointed by the RIR’s Executive Board. The seat that is open for election in 2022 is currently held by Martin Hannigan.
