Designated member representatives (DMRs) from ARIN's General Members in good standing (http://www.arin.net/membership/index.html#gmigs) will be asked to vote for two (2) candidates in the Board election and five (5) candidates in the Advisory Council election. ARIN Member Services requires a name and personalized email address be on record for the DMR; role accounts are not acceptable. Voter eligibility must be established at least 14 calendar days prior to the fourth quarter ARIN Members Meeting. Organizations who are not in good standing or do not have a valid DMR on file as of 29 September 2006 will not be eligible to vote. Please email Member Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure you have a properly registered DMR. Contact email@example.com if you have any questions about your organization's billing status.
Congratulations and good luck to all of the candidates. ARIN appreciates your willingness to take an active role in guiding the organization.
