BOARD OF TRUSTEE NOMINATIONS
ARIN's Board of Trustees is responsible for the business affairs, financial health, and property of ARIN. Board nominees should be able to demonstrate experience in performing fiduciary duties at the corporate level and making high-level budgetary, contractual, or other corporate/executive decisions. Board nominees should be available to attend several board meetings a year.
There are three ways to become a candidate for a seat on the Board of Trustees:
1. Be nominated by an ARIN member. Nominees do not have to be ARIN members.
2. If you are an ARIN member, you may self-nominate.
3. Nomination by petition as described below.
Nominations for the Board may be made without the Nomination Committee's participation by presenting a petition signed by 5% of the total ARIN membership. Current ARIN membership totals 1,840; therefore ninety two
(92) members will be required to send statements of support to firstname.lastname@example.org in order for the petitioning candidate to be nominated
