Volunteers Sought for ARIN's 2018 Nomination Committee

Posted: Friday, 02 February 2018

The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) seeks five volunteers from General Members in Good Standing to serve a one-year term on the 2018 Nomination Committee (NomCom).

Each year, 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. Individuals interested in learning more about the committee's scope of responsibilities can review the 2017 NomCom Charter by clicking on the link below, noting that the 2018 Charter will be published later in the month:


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.

To volunteer for the 2018 NomCom, please email your first and last name, email address, phone number, and ARIN Member organization name and Org ID to members@arin.net no later than 12:00 PM EST on Friday, 9 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:
