You are invited to nominate candidates from the ARIN region to fill one seat on the Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC) that will become vacant when Louie Lee's term expires on 31 December 2015. Candidates must be willing to serve a three-year term beginning 1 January 2016. Incumbents may be nominated for consecutive terms.
The ARIN Board of Trustees will also appoint an NRO NC representative from the slate of candidates to complete the two years remaining in the term previously held by Ron da Silva.
Information about the NRO NC, also known as the Address Supporting Organization Address Council, and who else is currently serving can be found here:
Nomination details are included below.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
