New Board and Advisory Council terms begin 1 January 2016. ARIN Board and Advisory Council incumbents may be re-elected for consecutive terms.

The Board of Trustees and Advisory Council elections have a Nomination Committee (NomCom) that is responsible for identifying, recruiting, and certifying a properly selected slate of candidates to be placed in nomination before the membership for election. This year's NomCom members are Board of Trustee members Timothy Denton (NomCom Chair) and Bill Woodcock and general member volunteers Bram Abramson, Kevin Blumberg, Martin Hannigan, Steve Middleton, and Tina Morris.

Now is also a good time for member organizations to check to make certain that they have a Voting Contact eligible to vote in the upcoming election before the voter eligibility deadline of 24 August. Direct any questions to
