Nomination Process and Election Slate Development

For detailed information on the ARIN Election nomination process, please visit:

For 2023, the process for evaluating nominees is notably different. The Nomination Committee (NomCom) is responsible for helping in the recruitment of individuals to self-nominate for the election. All nominees must self-nominate and complete all nomination materials to be considered for the Initial Candidate Slate. Nominees will be evaluated and assessed by an independent, third-party vendor, and all qualified nominees will appear on the ballot. The evaluation of qualifications will be based on the nominee questionnaire responses, background checks (Board only) and interviews, and the guidance letters received from the Board and AC.

The Candidate Slate will include at least five candidates for the Board and at least seven candidates for the AC. The open seats up for election will include three three-year term seats and one one-year term seat for the Board; for the AC, there will be five three-year term seats and one one-year term seat. Seats with partial terms are filled by the nonelected candidate who possesses the highest number of votes cast for the position and who is willing to serve.

Additional information about the Nomination Process:

Initial Slate

With the completion of its qualification classification process, the NomCom will provide an Initial Slate of Candidates for the Board and AC based on the assessments and information provided by the third-party vendor. The only nominees not included on this initial slate will be individuals who were classified as “Unable to Qualify” based on the evaluation criteria. ARIN will announce the Initial Slate of Candidates on Tuesday, 5 September 2023.
