Community Input Sought for 2016 Nominee Questionnaires

Posted: Wednesday, 15 June 2016

Each fall, ARIN's membership elects individuals to the ARIN Board of Trustees and Advisory Council (AC), including selecting one ARIN representative to the Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC). To run, a nominee must submit an online questionnaire that is designed to elicit details of their relevant experience. In preparation, ARIN is opening the floor to the community for input in this year's nominee questionnaires.

If you have questions that are relevant to policy issues or challenges facing ARIN that you'd like candidates to answer, send them to no later than 29 June 2016. Please mark whether your question is directed to candidates for the Board of Trustees, AC, or the NRO NC, or any combination of the three.

The Nomination Committee (NomCom) will review all submissions and then determine the final list and phrasing of all candidate questions.  

ARIN will publish candidate bios, including their questionnaire responses, when the slate of candidates is announced on 15 September. Questionnaire responses will also appear in the 2016 Voter Guide that will be mailed to all member organizations this fall prior to elections.
