1. Welcome & Agenda Review
The Chair called the meeting to order at 11:04 a.m. EDT. The presence of quorum was noted.
The Chair requested clarity with regard to confirming the election result confirmation via email, for those Board members unable to attend. The President indicated that for those Board members absent during the call today, their confirmation would be noted as such in the Minutes.
The Chair reviewed the agenda with the Board and there were no changes.
2. Confirmation of ARIN Elections Results
a) ARIN Board of Trustees Elections. The President noted that he had posted the full election results to the Board's mailing list earlier that day.
The Chair called for a motion on the ARIN Board of Trustee election results.
It was moved by John Curran, and seconded by Paul Andersen, that:
"The ARIN Board of Trustees confirms the results of the ARIN Board of Trustees Election concluded on 19 October 2014."
The Chair called for discussion. The President noted that the election procedures had been followed to the best of his knowledge. Paul Andersen noted Bill Sandiford's comments posted to the Board's list that the election process has been followed; and, that Bill Sandiford does support the election results as noted in his e-mail. The Chair indicated that Bill Woodcock had also confirmed the election results via email, and asked that it be noted in the Minutes.
The Chair asked if the motion to confirm the election results should be a roll call or a voice vote. The President indicated that a roll call vote was not required unless any Trustee requested a roll call vote. The President then said he is requesting a roll call vote. The Chair called for roll call vote on the motion.
The motion carried with all Trustees in attendance in favor, via roll call.
b) ARIN Advisory Council Election Results.
It was moved by John Curran, and seconded by Aaron Hughes, that:
"The ARIN Board of Trustees confirms the results of the ARIN Advisory Council Election concluded on 19 October 2014."
The Chair called for discussion. Bill Sandiford and Bill Woodcock's support on the Board's mailing list for the confirming the election results was noted. The President noted that the election procedures had been followed to the best of his knowledge.
The Chair called for a roll call vote on the motion.
The motion carried with all Trustees in attendance in favor, via roll call vote.
The Chair observed that there appeared to be limited geographic diversity among the Board when considering the election results. Paul Andersen indicated that many in the community also share the same sentiment since members have asked the Board to look into diversifying the composition of the Board. Aaron Hughes indicated that not having clear diversity guidelines made the NomCom process more difficult. The Chair proposed that the Board Governance Committee consider measures to enhance Caribbean participation in the ARIN Board, and come back with a recommendation to the Trustees. The Board agreed with the assignment.
The Chair entertained a motion to adjourn at 11:12 a.m. EDT. Tim Denton moved to adjourn. The meeting adjourned with no objections.
