3. Any Other Business

The Chair called for any other business.

The President stated that one of the three seats for the NRO NC/ASO AC in the ARIN region is an appointed position, and now is the time for the Board to make an appointment.

ARIN has one nominee this year, Mr. Ron da Silva. He stated that the Board is not obligated to appoint Mr. da Silva, but that it was his recommendation to the Board. The President stated he would contact whoever is appointed, in order for the candidate to confirm acceptance of the appointment, and agree to serve.

It was moved by John Curran, and seconded by Paul Andersen, that:

“The ARIN Board of Trustees hereby appoints Ron da Silva to the serve as the 2012 ARIN-region NRO NC/ASO AC representative."

The Chair called for discussion. Scott Bradner suggested amending the motion to include start and ending dates. Paul Andersen seconded the amendment. Paul stated that he had spoken with Louie Lee, Chair of the NRO NC/ASO AC, who reported that he was very happy with Ron as a representative in 2011. There were no objections to revising the motion to include start and end dates.

The new motion read:

“The ARIN Board of Trustees hereby appoints Ron da Silva to the serve as the ARIN-region NRO NC/ASO AC representative, for a three-year term beginning 1 January 2012 through 31 December 2014."

The motion carried with no objections.
