Election Information

Each October, representatives from ARIN's General Members in Good Standing elect candidates to the ARIN Board of Trustees and Advisory Council (AC) to serve staggered three-year terms. Visit the Board of Trustees page or Advisory Council page for more information on either body and the Board and AC Election Procedures page for specifics about each step of the election process.

A Nomination Committee (NomCom) is established each year for the purposes of identifying, recruiting, and certifying a properly selected slate of Trustee and AC Candidates to be placed in nomination. For more information about the NomCom, view the NomCom Charter or the NomCom FAQ.

Two out of three years, eligible ARIN Member organizations' Voting Contacts and October NANOG/ARIN Meeting attendees elect one ARIN representative to the Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC) to serve a staggered three-year term, while ARIN's Board of Trustees appoints a third representative from a community-developed pool of nominees. To learn more about the NRO NC, visit the NRO NC website. For more information on this election process specifically, visit the NRO NC election details page.

Each ARIN Member organization is entitled to one Voting Contact (per Org ID) who may vote in the ARIN Board of Trustees and AC elections on their behalf. A Voting Contact must have a confirmed "Voting Contact" Point of Contact (POC) record linked to an ARIN Online account for that member organization to be eligible to vote in elections. An ARIN Member organization must also be a General Member in Good Standing 45 days before a ballot or election to be eliglble to participate.
