ARIN is issuing an open call for General Members in good standing to nominate candidates for two (2) seats on the Board of Trustees and five (5) seats on the Advisory Council that become open when current terms expire on December 31, 2005.

This year's NomCom members are: Bill Manning (Chair), Scott Bradner, Alec Peterson, Rob Seastrom, Dave Diller, Scott Shackelford, and Jason Warren.

  2. All nominees are subject to the Nomination and Appointment Conflict of Interest List.

  3. Nominations must be received by 23:59 ET on Friday, July 29, 2005. In accordance with ARIN's Bylaws, each General Member in good standing may make up to three nominations for each open seat.
