Volunteer to Serve on ARIN's 2017 Nomination Committee

Posted: Monday, 13 February 2017

Start the year off by volunteering to serve on the American Registry for Internet Number's (ARIN) 2017 Nomination Committee (NomCom). ARIN seeks volunteers from General Members in Good Standing to serve a one year term. 

The NomCom is responsible for identifying, recruiting, and certifying a slate of Board of Trustees and Advisory Council (AC) candidates to the ARIN Membership for election, in accordance with ARIN Bylaws and procedures. For information on the committee's scope of responsibilities, please review the NomCom Charter at:

The NomCom is composed of seven representatives that include two members from the ARIN Board of Trustees, one serving as Chair, who then appoint five individual representatives from a General Membership pool of volunteers. The representatives may include up to two serving AC members.

Volunteers must represent an ARIN Member organization that is in good standing. Candidates for this year's Board of Trustees and AC elections are ineligible to sit on the NomCom.

If you're interested in serving on the 2017 NomCom, please email your first and last name, email address, phone number, and ARIN Member organization and Org ID to members@arin.net no later than 12:00 PM EST on Friday, 17 February.

Selected representatives will be contacted directly by ARIN and will be asked to sign and return a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) within three business days of being notified of their selection. To review the NDA, please visit:
